Gandhian Naresh Kadyan, suitable candidate for the post of Chairman, KVIC

There is no doubt that the MSME policy for the 12th Five-Year Plan (2012-17) period needs to look at broader issues rather than staying myopic and concentrating on issues like cluster development, micro-finance, and venture capital. Till today, all policies and programmes pertaining to the sector were nothing but short-term and 'stop-gap arrangements'.

Despite the immense potential of the sector, I see no programmes or policies that can provide an impetus to innovation which is imperative for the sector. It is usually seen that we wait for a crisis to grow before taking crisis mitigation policies that are aimed at short-term corrections. Long-term polices still elude the sector. Also missing is the eagerness of financial institutions and banks to invest in entrepreneurship.

The policy should also dwell on issues of better infrastructure, enhanced productivity, cost competitiveness and improved quality to create products for domestic and overseas markets. So far, a concerted effort or a platform wherein MSMEs can share information with suppliers, buyers, workers and other stakeholders for overall growth of the sector and subsequently of the economy is interestingly missing.

What's sad is the fact that both development and sustainable growth of the sector is being hampered due to obsolete technology usage. Most players in the sector are still unaware of the global technological advances in their respective area of operation. The MSME policy should look at helping the sector in improving product quality, efficiency in raw material consumption, and improvement in individual skills to be able to compete with global players.

Today, the MSME sector in the country contributes about 40 percent to the GDP with an estimated value of goods and services worth Rs 20 lakh crore, employing six crore workers in 2.6 crore units across the country. The question is 'Can we ignore this sector any longer?"

MSMEs need to try innovative marketing strategies :

Traditional Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) usually rely on word of mouth approach to increase their customer base, but the market realities and rules of engaging a customer today have changed. A huge chunk of the country's MSMEs today face stiff challenges of marketing their products. Undoubtedly, all will agree, that weak marketing today is a main constraint for the sector, which otherwise could have done much better than what it is doing now.

I strongly believe that in today's market context, increasing one's product basket and confined to being a part of the supply chain is not enough at all. Each and every MSME now has to find a niche for itself to market its products through either through strategic alliances or directly.

What saddens me is the fact that most MSMEs are missing out on one essential requirement - that is to focus on brand management. The players of the sector need to understand that marketing is no longer a specialized activity and it encompasses the entire business and is thus of utmost importance for a healthy business.

MSMEs also need to understand that every aspect of marketing, be it their products, channels of distribution, pricing, or marketing communications, affects the customers' response to a product or service tremendously. They need to see from the customer's point of view and then decide their marketing strategy.

There may have been occasions when many potential customers had probably shown an interest in your products or services in the past, but didn't end up buying due to several reasons. You must ask yourself this question: have I tried to keep them interested in my products? Invariably, by keeping past customers within one's reach, one can drastically increase the ability to spread news of one's new product range in the market.

Moreover, most MSMEs feel that marketing via the web is a wasted exercise. You cannot be more wrong, if you think so. If you have not been generating revenue via your web presence till now, I think it is time you adapted to take advantage of this medium. Tens of thousands of companies have profited from their presence on the web...you could be the next!

We need people like Gandhian Ideologist, philosopher and social reformer Naresh Kadyan, leading animal rights activist, representing UN affiliated the International Organization for Animal Protection - OIPA in India, services be utilized as a Chairman of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission - KVIC.

It would be pertinent to mention here that Naresh Kadyan moved a public interest litigation before the Punjab and Haryana High Court at Chandigarh against so called Khalistani, who were responsible for spreading mud on the image of our beloved former Prime Minister of India Smt. Indira Gandhi, he pleaded his PIL in person because local Advocates refused to argue the case but it was his victory to get all defamatory materials removed from internet and You Tube. If he will be given a chance to work as Chairman, KVIC then he will be the assets for Congress and his services can be utilised as a counter part of Smt.
