Government e-Marketplace (GeM) makes it mandatory for sellers to indicate the Country of Origin for the products

Government e-Marketplace (GeM),a Special Purpose Vehicle under the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, has made it mandatory for sellers to indicate Country of Origin while registering all new products on GeM. Further, sellers have also been asked to indicate the Country of Origin for their existing products on GeM. Non-compliance with this direction could result in products being removed from GeM.

GeM has taken this step to promote the ‘Make in India’ and ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ objectives of the Government of India. In the new feature enabled by the GeM on its online portal, the Country of Origin as well as the local content percentage are visible in the marketplace for all items. Further, the ‘Make in India’ filter has also now been enabled on the portal.
