SHILLONG, June 19: In a significant move aimed at bolstering the business landscape, the Meghalaya Industrial Development Corporation Ltd. (MIDC) has inaugurated the Business Facilitation Centre (BFC). This new initiative is set to simplify and enhance the way business is conducted for both current and future entrepreneurs in Meghalaya, thereby driving economic growth in the region.
The centre will focus on a few primary areas to streamline operations and provide comprehensive support. Firstly, the BFC will manage lease agreements across MIDC’s industrial estates in Byrnihat, Umian, and Mendipathar. This service aims to ensure timely and efficient handling of lease-related matters, thereby improving the operational efficiency for businesses operating in these areas; secondly, it will generate CIBIL score report. Entrepreneurs applying under the CM-ELEVATE scheme will benefit from on-site generation of CIBIL score reports. This service is designed to provide essential credit information, facilitating better access to financial resources and expediting loan processing with various banks.
Then, the centre will offer capacity-building programmes focusing on financial literacy and education with the aim to equip entrepreneurs with the necessary knowledge and skills to manage their finances effectively and make informed business decisions.
Chairman of MIDC James PK Sangma expressed enthusiasm for the new initiative, stating, “The Business Facilitation Centre represents a significant step forward in our commitment to fostering a business-friendly environment in Meghalaya. By offering targeted support services, we aim to empower entrepreneurs and drive economic development in the state.”
Managing Director of MIDC DD Nongmalieh added, “Our goal is to create a seamless experience for businesses at every stage of their journey. The BFC is a testament to our dedication to enhancing the ease of doing business in Meghalaya, and we are confident that it will be a valuable resource for our entrepreneurial community.”
