Delayed payment by PSUs
Desingurajan | Wed Sep 13 16:17:09 2017
Happy to note that Govt of India supports MSMEs. Ground reality is delay in release of payments by PSUs.inefficient officers reading in between lines of Agreements and delaying the scheme to bring to beneficial use of the organisation from which they are getting their bread,and also making MSMEs and their employees to get in to trouble. our company is facing such issue from VISL/SAIL Bhadravathi. we don't know the way to collect our payment.The project period after 5 extensions couldn't be completed.
