Nearly 50 per cent of this GMV has been attributed to the procurement of services, displaying a remarkable surge of 205 per cent in the segment over the previous year.

“By creating access to the market, GeM has been exceptionally successful in breaking down the cartel of established service providers and paved the way for small domestic entrepreneurs to participate in government tenders from anywhere at any time,” the ministry stated.

The contribution made by central entities including ministries and Central public sector enterprises have spurred the huge growth in GMV. These government organisations have contributed to nearly 85 per cent of the total Rs 4 lakh crore milestone.
