Divisional Level Council for payment of MSME
Currently MSME units are facing many problems to get their payments. At present there is a large number of MSME cases pending with only one Facilitation Council. The new Act provides for the creation of a Facilitation Council at the Mandal level. This will solve the payment related problems of MSME units at the divisional level itself. This council will be chaired by the Mandalayuktas. If the decision of the Board of Facilitation Council is not complied with, then a certificate of recovery can be issued for recovery of the dues. Recovery will be done like land revenue. This will make it easier for MSMEs to get paid.
