The Quality Council of India (QCI) on Tuesday said it has signed an agreement to collaborate on enhancing awareness and participation in the Centre's 'MSME Competitive Lean Scheme' among member companies of Laghu Udyog Bharati.

The MoU between QCI and Laghu Udyog Bharati (LUB) outlines a road map for collaborative initiatives, including awareness programmes, camps, and consultations at the state- and district-levels, to facilitate the adoption of lean principles and sustainable practices under the scheme among the members, who are micro, small and medium enterprises. The National Accreditation Board for Education and Training (NABET), which is a constituent board of Quality Council of India, will encourage LUB members to register for the MSME Competitive Lean Scheme.

It will also provide assistance to the LUB members for their progression in the 'Lean Journey' from 'Lean Basic' to the 'Lean Intermediate' and finally to achieve the 'Lean Advance' level.

MSME Competitive Lean Scheme (MCLS) has been launched to enhance the competitiveness of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the country.

NABET CEO Varinder Kanwar said, ''Our focus is on enabling MSMEs to adopt lean methodologies effectively, driving efficiency, reducing costs, and enhancing competitiveness through the MSME Competitive Lean Scheme.'' Laghu Udyog Bharati General Secretary Om Prakash Gupta said, ''We will actively facilitate NABET to reach out to its members by organising various meetings and programmes.''
