More than 20 lakh employment generated in micro enterprises in the last five year under the Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme. Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, MSME, Nitin Gadkari said this in a written reply in Lok Sabha today.
He said, in 2018-19 over five lakh 87 thousand employment were generated in this sector. Mr Gadkari said, the large number of employment opportunities are created with use of relatively less capital in the MSME sector.
He said, the Ministry implements Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme, which is a credit-linked subsidy programme aimed at generating self-employment opportunities.
