by Estartup India Grow Business With Us

We all are well aware that our home planet is currently battling with the biggest catastrophe — the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus disease also called COVID-19. Having its sway on the entire planet with millions of deaths worldwide, this pandemic has now posed the greatest challenge to mankind. Two things which are most common these days in India and the rest of the world are — surgical face mask and hand sanitizers

These days, our government is providing a large number of surgical face masks and hand sanitizers to the general public at the hospitals, quarantine centers, and near residential places. So, it’s worth knowing that from where does the government get the supplies of these 2 crucial articles. The small scale manufacturers and suppliers provide the stock of masks & sanitizers. Now, where does the government access these manufacturers/suppliers? — The answer is on Government e-Marketplace. 

The suppliers having GeM registration can directly connect with respective govt departments and supply the necessary stock of masks & sanitizers to them. So, let us understand the importance of GeM registration for the suppliers of surgical face masks and hand sanitizers.

  1. What is the role of Government e-Marketplace


Indian Government had begun a business-friendly platform called Government e-Marketplace or GeM portal. Its key objective is to deliver functional assistance to the micro & small enterprises (MSEs) of India. With a simple GeM registration, the sellers of the surgical masks and sanitizers can get complete aid for supplying their product to the respective government buyers on the Government e-Marketplace.


2. Scope for Suppliers of masks and sanitizers on GeM portal 

Currently, the GeM department is listing the suppliers of masks and sanitizers and their products in order to combat COVID-19.

  • Products like hand sanitizers, thermometers, surgical masks & gloves are largely available on the GeM login.

  • Recently, there are above 9500 GeM registered suppliers of the scheduled 7000 products intended to combat the COVID-19 platform. 


3. How shall suppliers of masks and sanitizers operate through GeM?

The GeM department has now eased the GeM registration of the manufacturers and resellers to register and list their products on the Government e-Marketplace.

  • Fast-tracking of the GeM registration process has been done for those sellers and re-sellers of COVID-19 equipment.

  • Earlier, the bidding time was 2 weeks for products and services. Now, the GeM department has reduced the bidding time to just 3 days to ensure faster procurement of goods and services. 


So we can see that there is a huge scope of the sellers and re-sellers of COVID-19 equipment such as surgical masks & hand sanitizers on the Government e-Marketplace.
