MSMEs to benefit as Defence canteens to go online: Vyapar
The Centre is in an “advanced stage ” of activating e-commerce facilities at its Canteen Stores Department (CSD) for online purchase of the goods by its beneficiaries associated with the defense services, a top official revealed at Vyapar 2022 that concluded on Saturday.
A meeting of the CSD Board on July 1 will near-finalize the move to set up the digital platform even as the 34 brick-and-mortar depots will continue to function as usual, according to Major General Y.P. Khanduri, General Manager of CSD, which functions under the Ministry of Defence. Either way, it will boost MSMEs, as micro, small and medium industries form a chunk of CSD’s business partners (251 out of the total 555).
