The online platform allows invoice discounting for MSMEs from government buyers including government departments, public sector units, private buyers including corporates. BSE Tech said TReDS business of BSE will commence only after the receipt of final approval and certificate of license from RBI. “BSE Tech will now have the capability to provide an option to MSME to manage their working capital more efficiently through the TReDS platform. BSE is always at the forefront in creating the ecosystem around MSMEs and keeping this in view we are widening our product offering to MSMEs. We are hopeful with the launch of this TReDS platform the financing issues of MSMEs will be better addressed and contribute to their growth,” Ashishkumar Chauhan, MD & CEO, BSE said in a statement.
