Structure

The Hub would operate out of the National Small Industries Corporation (NSIC) headquartered in Delhi, supported by a special cell created for this purpose. Three committees have been envisioned that will help in the functioning of the Hub:

High Powered Monitoring Committee

Minister of MSME is the chairperson of the committee. The committee members are representatives of various stakeholders including states, various ministries, industry associations & SC/ST entrepreneurs. Primarily, this committee would monitor the overall activities of the Hub at the highest level.

Advisory Committee

The Chairperson of this committee is Sh. Milind Kamble, Chairman, DICCI (Dalit Indian Chamber of Commerce & Industry). This committee works directly under the High Powered Monitoring Committee. It would bring the industry and SC/ST entrepreneurs’ perspective to the Hub with the purpose of developing an effective, mutually beneficial relationship between the target group and the government. It would also help in promoting affirmative action in private sector to encourage supplier diversity.

Empowered Project Approval Committee

Secretary, Ministry of MSME chairs this committee. As the Hub is dynamic in nature and will evolve over the envisaged period, requirement of funds for various activities is likely to vary depending on the emphasis areas or changes in identified focus areas. This Committee would ensure such flexibilities with a view to accommodate changing requirements of SC/ST entrepreneurs.
