Having been in the track of MSME domain for more than 27 years, SIDBI has been engaging itself in devising and offering credible structural interventions for the holistic development of the MSME Sector. The development of Micro Finance Institutions, rural enterprise promotion, direct assistance and augmenting the money supply for the MSME sector through its refinance programme have been the notable contributions to the sector. Policy Advocacy has also been a thrust area for SIDBI wherein its endeavor has always been to facilitate stakeholders by devising ways and means for supplementing their efforts in the area of Policy Formulation. The launch of CRiSidEx, a MSE Sentiment Index, and MSME PULSE, a quarterly report tracking the health of MSMEs, are the recent structural interventions in this direction. While CriSidEx is aimed at tapping MSME sentiments i.e. their expectations and aspirations on periodical basis, MSME PULSE aims to be a ‘Periodical health tracker’ of MSME segment and convert the pains, if any, into gains.
