National Scheduled Caste And Scheduled Tribe Hub
The National Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Hub (NSSH) is a major step towards offering professional support to socially backward entrepreneurs. With the help of this particular scheme, the government plans to promote inclusive growth and develop a supportive ecosystem to ST/SC led enterprises.
The government is taking numerous initiatives to bring this scheme into action. The first step is taken by the ‘Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises or MSME’, where the Ministry has allocated a huge amount of Rs 490 crores for NSSH, for the period of 2016-2020. The notable benefits of this scheme include:
- Inclusion of SC/ST and other marginalized sections in the country’s development
- Selected entrepreneurs would be provided with support and mentoring by industry experts, Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) and incubators.
- Addressing performance gaps in the entrepreneurial and business ecosystem of the country
- Enabling SC/ST Enterprises to participate in public procurement process and getting financial aid
