JAMMU: At the behest of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, local filters shall become operational on GeM in Jammu and Kashmir from February 25, enabling the departments to procure goods and services from the local manufacturers, one of the important components of economic package announced recently for giving boost to local entrepreneurship.
The significant development gained momentum following a meeting of the officials of J&K government and GeM (Government E-Marketing) authorities to expedite its implementation in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.The local filters and MSME filters can be used together for procurements made up to Rs. 5 lakhs from local manufacturers.
