Know about – MSME SAMPARK
The MSME Sampark portal (http://sampark.msme.gov.in/) is a digital platform provided by the Ministry of MSME – Government of India, wherein, jobseekers (passed out trainees / students of 18 MSME Technology Centres) and recruiters (various reputed national & multinational companies as well as MSMEs) register themselves for getting employment and getting right kind of manpower respectively.
MSME Technology Centres have been one of the key contributors to the Make in India initiative by contributing in various verticals such as Aerospace, Automobile, Electronics, Glass, Footwear, Sports goods, Fragrance & Flavour, etc. These Centres are providing training to around 1.5 lakh students annually and most of them are being absorbed by industry within the country as well as abroad.
Skill Development is only one half of the challenge for these Centres, finding the right employment opportunity for these skilled youth, is yet another. While major corporates have well-defined recruitment processes with a national reach, the challenge remains for small businesses and entrepreneurs to find the right person for the job with relevant experience and skill-set. On the other hand, the job seekers struggle to match their skill sets with the role, position, required experience, monetary expectation, location & industry verticals leaves with too many parameters to be matched in a limited opportunity map. To bridge this gap between the Recruiters and Job Seekers, The Ministry of MSME has launched – MSME SAMPARK.
WHO ARE THE KEY ENTITIES INVOLVED?
The MSME Sector of India
Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector has emerged as a highly vibrant and dynamic sector of the Indian economy over the past five decades. MSMEs not only play crucial role in providing large employment opportunities at comparatively lower capital cost than large industries but also help in industrialization of rural & backward areas, thereby, reducing regional imbalances, assuring more equitable distribution of national income and wealth. MSMEs are complementary to large industries as ancillary units and this sector contributes enormously to the socio-economic development of the country.
