State Govt launches Silpa Disha app for MSME sector
The State Government has launched an app, Silpa Disha to enable communication between small investors and the State Government. The app is run by the Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises and Textiles (MSME&T) Department.
Importantly, communication here includes the conveying of any grievances that micro, small and medium enterprises might have. Through the app, the issues are submitted to the department and the MSME Directorate. The status of the issue submitted can be tracked with the help of a docket number.
The government has always been open about solving industry-related issues promptly, and this app is another example of that approach.
Grievances related to land, power, infrastructure, pollution certification and several more aspects can be submitted through Silpa Disha.
It is significant to note that around 100 questions, mostly related to land, have come through the app from across the State, which officials of the department and directorate have answered through the app.
As of now, questions are answered during working hours. However, soon officials would be appointed for a 24-hour query-solving system.
