The scheme will be operated by the MSME department
According to the information, there are about 90 lakh units in the unorganized sector in the state, out of which only 14 lakh are registered on the Udyam Registration Portal. Due to non-availability of their figures, the economic contribution of this sector is not clear. Therefore, in order to encourage micro units for registration, it has been decided to link them with the Chief Minister’s Micro Insurance Scheme. The scheme will be operated by the MSME department in the current financial year. Units with capital investment up to 50 lakhs are kept in the category of micro units.
