About Us

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) works to create and sustain an environment conducive to the development of India, partnering industry, Government, and civil society, through advisory and consultative processes. CII is a non-government, not-for-profit, industry-led and industry-managed organization, playing a proactive role in India's development process. Founded in 1895, India's premier business association has over 8000 members, from the private as well as public sectors, including SMEs and MNCs, and an indirect membership of over 200,000 enterprises from around 240 national and regional sectoral industry bodies.

On the recommendation of CII-National MSME Council to bridge the technology gap plaguing in the Indian MSME sector, an initiative was actively proposed. The proposed recommendation gave birth to the idea of launching Technology Facilitation Center with a holistic approach to bridge the technology gap for Indian MSMEs with feasible technological solutions. One of the objectives of the TFC is to create awareness about various technologies and support MSMEs in Tier I and Tier II cities through regular interactions with multiple stakeholders in order to provide handholding support in optimally adopting the suitable technologies and connect them with the right solution providers. On the other hand, TFC also provides an effective platform to technical partners by directly connecting them with their customers in MSME industry through multiple outreach programmes and initiatives.


The CII Technology Facilitation Centre (CII-TFC) is launched to enhance the access to technology for Indian MSMEs and create technical literacy amongst them. The Centre has partnered with top technological solution providers to bring technologies that create sustainability and global competitiveness among Indian MSMEs. Some of the key challenges that are
currently being faced by MSME industry in India are:

▶   Lack of awareness about the available technological solutions
▶   Identification of the best fit technological solution
▶   High cost of technological application and solutions
▶   Low connectivity and linkages to technological
     solution providers
▶   Lack of expertise in handling and implementing complex
     technological processes


▶   A platform to connect technological solution providers in the areas of Process automation, Technology for manufacturing, Robotics, Digital marketing & Analytics, Renewable energy, Cloud technology etc. with MSMEs across the country.

▶   Knowledge sharing and application of technologies across sectors in areas such as designing, machining, supply chain management, prototyping, product development and evolution, etc.

▶   End to end facilitation and support for smooth delivery of the services of the Centre’s technical partners to MSMEs.

▶   Technological demonstrations and roadshows in Tier I and Tier II cities for the expansion and diversification of market base for technology partners.

▶   Opportunity for technological solution providers to network and interact with their prospective customers and gain insights for product development and innovation.
