Government e-Market (GEM) will be a digital procurement platform for local products in the future. So the current government launched GEM in 2019 to bring transparency to procurement.
Digitization will be the only way for prosperity, transparency and development of the country in all fields. As a result, it is possible to easily complete audits in government offices said Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma while inaugurating a workshop on GEM at the Agartala Town Hall at the initiative of the Finance Department.
The workshop was attended by different level officials attached to GEM of Agartala Treasury-1, and Treasury-II of Jirania, Mohanpur.
In the workshop, Deputy Chief Minister also said that local traders, members of self-help groups, and self-employed people will be able to promote their products in the national market through their inclusion in GEM. As a result, the goods produced in the state will be much easier to reach the national market.
Therefore, Deputy Chief Minister urged the concerned department to take initiatives so that more and more local businessmen include their names in GEM. It may be noted that 540 businessmen of the state are now associated with GEM.
Deputy Chief Minister also said that the current central and state governments give importance to the people's ideas in the development plans for the common people because Prime Minister Narendra Modi believes that only a responsible government can play a responsible role in the development of people.
