Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in India contribute significantly to the Indian gross domestic product. However, their performance and contribution can increase manifold if they adopt technology, and in line, the Indian government is pushing SMEs towards digitization. In the Union Budget 2020, finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced that the turnover threshold for auditing will be raised from INR 1 crore to INR 5 crore for MSMEs who carry less than 5 per cent of their business transactions in cash.
