Repositioning of the Indian Small Industry:
An analysis of the survey findings revealed that 72 % of respondents feel that simplification of labour laws, 66 % respondents feel that promoting innovations while 65 % feel that regulatory changes as the top three key enablers for repositioning of the Indian Small Industry in the changing global scenario.

Procurement Preference Policy:
On the procurement preference policy front, 81% of surveyed respondents support the development of the Procurement Preference Policy for MSEs as statutory under Section 11of MSMED Act 2006, that makes it mandatory for all the Central Government Ministries/Departments, its aided institutions and Public Sector Undertakings, etc, and must be executed by all officials to whom procurement authority has been delegated.

Only 13 % of respondents are not sure about it and only 6 percent respondents have not responded to this question. Earlier the policy was non-statutory in nature having been issued by way of executive instructions and hence it was not enforceable by law.

- Collateral requirements of banks/Financial institutions
- Bank Paperwork/bureaucracy

Non Traditional Sources of Finance:
The poll findings further revealed that 43 % respondents of Small and Medium Industry foresee the dominant role of non traditional source of finance substituting the traditional (banking) sources.
