|With over 1000 Design consultants/ Design firms/ Design Students / Design Institutes and over 800 MSME units and MSME associations registered with the scheme, the Scheme Website provides effective platform for sharing information and experiences|
|18 Orientation programmes organised in different parts of the country helped us explain the details of the scheme to its various stakeholders, thereby forming the first step to take the scheme and its benefits to the needy MSME units|
|200 Design Awareness Seminars organised over the last two and half years for different sectors of MSMEs helped explain the benefits of design to the MSME units.|
|Design Projects, one of the core components of the Scheme helps demonstrate the capability of design through hand holding support for the MSME units to realise and take the design proposal/s up to prototype level|
With the core objective to help Indian MSMEs to sustain and survive in todays competitive markets and importantly help move up the value chain to develop their own designs and products, the success achieved so far and the response received from all the stakeholders of the scheme, encourage the implementation team to work more vigorously to achieve the set target. We are sure with the target of 400 design projects completed, their results will help us establish the need for design for this critical sector of Indian economy.
