These companies will be listed on small and medium enterprises platforms of the BSE and NSE.
The funds raised through the issue would be used for business expansion plans, working capital requirements and other general corporate purposes.

In the current fiscal so far, more than 23 SMEs got listed on capital markets with IPOs Rs 185 crore. In comparison, 44 SMEs raised a total of Rs 290 crore in the entire last financial year (2015-16).
The BSE and NSE had launched SME platforms in March 2012, becoming the only two bourses to offer such a segment in the country. Since then, several companies have got listed on them and some have even shifted to the mainboard.
The platform provides opportunity to SME entrepreneurs to raise equity capital for growth and expansion. It also provides immense opportunity for investors to identify and invest in good SMEs at an early stage.
