Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal said that Government portal GEM can become Amazon of India

Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal on Sunday said that he believes the government's portal GEM (Government e-Marketplace) works like Amazon and Flipkart in selling Indian products. Can do. At the closing ceremony of the India International Cooperative Trade Fair (IICTF), he said in Delhi that he was considering opening the GEM portal for private businesses and the private sector. GEM used for government procurement GEM provides online facility for procurement of goods and services in use by various government departments and public sector undertakings with the objective of bringing transparency in government procurement and increasing efficiency while speeding up procurement.

Goyal said that like Amazon and Flipkart, GEM can become India's own e-commerce portal through which traditional and heritage items manufactured in India as well as items from the cooperative sector can be sold. Stalls can be opened at 6500 railway stations In the context of providing a wider market for co-operative products, he said that GEM can act as an outlet for indigenous goods in India and abroad. Goyal said that stalls for co-operative products can be opened in 6,500 railway stations in a transparent manner. He spoke of opening of similar stalls at airports and bus bases.

He said that new malls could provide places for cooperative or handicraft shops at affordable rates. Uncover wrongdoing to avoid slander Cooperative sector: Goyal Piyush Goyal said that those who build the cooperative sector will have to think how to strengthen the sector by self-regulation and expose wrongdoings. Goyal said this in the context of the Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative (PMC) bank scam. He said that I do not believe that such a big scam in such a big bank can happen without the involvement of hundreds of people.

So many accounts will be open. So many funds must have been rigged. Branches will be involved, management will be involved, employees will be involved. He said that I understand that the well-wishers of the cooperative sector, we all have a responsibility to not bring the entire sector into disrepute.

There should not be any work that would question its existence.
