Online platform Government e-Marketplace (GeM) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with GS1 India, a standards organization set up by the Commerce Ministry.

This will enable GeM's buyers and vendors to access rich, accurate and standardized information on attributes of thousands of products across categories, empowering them to make more informed decisions, said an official statement.

The agreement was signed by Additional CEO, GeM, K Suresh Kumar and CEO, GS1 India, Ravi Mathur.

CEO, GeM, Radha Chauhan, and senior officials from GeM and GS1 India were present on this occasion.

GeM will access product data from GS1 India’s DataKart, the National repository of information on attributes of millions of retail products in the country.

The categories get populated directly by manufacturers and brand owners. Every data will undergo validity checks based on globally accepted GS1 standards prior to being published for access by buyers.
