Mishra admitted to a changed work culture in the government. The 73-year-old Lok Sabha MP from Deoria in Uttar Pradesh said that he along with his colleagues were trying to keep pace with PM Narendra Modi, who is known to work for long hours day after day.
Mishra said that Modi is a strong votary of “minimum government, maximum governance”. His aides have said he plans to implement many of his ideas now. Describing the former Gujarat chief minister as a ‘visionary leader with clear-cut ideas’, Mishra said his ministry would soon set the ball rolling on many schemes.
He said officials in his ministry were already engaged in a special survey to identify bottlenecks and roadblocks in the way of developing small and micro industries in Uttar Pradesh, a state which both he and Modi represent in the Lok Sabha.
The survey is being done to assess what needs to be done for both short-term revival and long-term success of these units.
He said that the ministry is also aiming to enforce a 2006 law which fixed the onus of payment, within 45 days, on big industries for material purchased from small, micro and medium industries like weaving and bangle making. The survey is on in Varanasi (Modi’s constituency), Meerut, Firozabad, Moradabad and a few other places in Uttar Pradesh.
The ministry, Mishra added, is also trying to simplify the registration process for small scale industry and making it a single window mechanism. Mishra said small time entrepreneurs were faced with issues like lack of interest and support from banks owing to little capital involvement, trouble with labour laws, provision of No Objection Certificates and non-cooperation by state governments.
