NEW DELHI: THe Cabinet on Wednesday gave the go ahead for the creation of an Indian Enterprise Development Services (IEDS) under the Office of the Development Commissioner, Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. 


The service, as envisaged, has been created by absorbing 11 trades, recruitment to which had been done differently following different rules, Ministry officials stated. The decision to create a separate and unified service for the Ministry was taken by the Union Cabinet to upgrade the existing bureacratic system. 


“The 11 trades were created in the 1950s and 1960s when there was prevalence of a regulation regime. Therefore, a need was felt for a cadre to work towards development of enterprises in the country,” a senior official pointed out.


The Indian Enterprise Development Services will have a cadre strength of 617 officers, 6 of which will be at the level of joint secretaries, at the initial phase.  These officers will man 72 field offices of the Development Commissioner and the headquarters in Delhi. Out of the 72 field offices, 30 are MSME development institutes and 28 branch institutes
