What is GEM Registration?
GEM Registration (Government e-marketplace) is mandatory for all buyers and government sellers or government departments and ministries to source goods and services from Government’s e-marketplace.
Government e-marketplace (GEM Registration) is an online platform for public procurement that was introduced by the Commerce and Industry Minister on August 9, 2016, under the Allocation of Business Rules, 1961. As part of the Make in India initiative, the Government of India (GOI) has made it mandatory for all its departments to source goods and services from the e-marketplace. The introduction of this portal by the government aims to streamline the process of acquiring stores and supplies.
With the Government E-marketplace (GEM) portal, individuals and businesses have the opportunity to sell their products to government departments and also purchase products from the platform. It is now a requirement for government offices to procure stocks exclusively from the GEM Portal. Only those who have obtained GEM Registration are eligible to participate as sellers or buyers on the platform.
