In cognizance, Government took governance measures in terms of enacting MSME Act of 2006. Policies were laid for simplification of systems and procedures, introduction of fiscal incentives, availability of common and better infrastructure etc; for this sector to ensure growth and competitiveness. Subsequently, Government of Odisha brought out "Industrial Policy Resolution 2007" and "MSME Development policy - 2009" to supplement the measures of Govt. of India. However, Govt. of Odisha, policy document recognized that "Despite the initiative taken in the successive industrial policies, the growth of MSMEs in Orissa is not at par with the national and international standards."
