According to Mr. Narayan Rane, Minister of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, the MSME sector, which accounts for one-third of India's GDP, has room for expansion in coming years.

“Today, there are more than 90 million MSMEs in the country. Of these, 15 million MSMEs are under GST”, said Mr. Sivasubramanian Ramann, CMD, Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI).
