Mahila E-haat is a direct online marketing platform of the government that leverages technology for supporting women entrepreneurs/SHGs/NGOs for showcasing the products and services which are made/manufactured/undertaken by them.
Responding to a question in Lok Sabha, WCD Minister Smriti Irani presented data according to which 361 women entrepreneurs are registered in Mahila E-haat portal.
"As evident therefrom, very few entrepreneurs have utilised the services of this portal," she said in a written reply.
She said the government has promoted platforms such as Government e-Market Place (GeM) and e-market place managed by National Small Industries Corporation (NSIC) to support the entrepreneurs.
"In view thereof, the possibility of transfer of Mahila E-haat to an e-market access development related department has been explored," she added. PTI UZM AAR
