This was done with the objectives of facilitating coordinated and focused policy formulation and effective implementation of programmes, projects, schemes, etc., for improving supply chain management, enhancing skills, upgrading technology, expanding markets and capacity building of the entrepreneurs/artisans and their groups/collectives."

Ministry of Agro and Rural Industries and Ministry of Small Scale Industries merged into a single Ministry "MINISTRY OF MICRO, SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES". New website is under re-construction.
