The program started with lighting of lamps by the members of FICCI FLO and MSME. Also, a small girl Kumari Neeti Jain presented a beautiful dance on Ganesh Stuti.

Chief guest Sant Shri Balak Das, while highlighting the importance of the program, said that the government uses about 82 percent of the budget allocated for MSMEs as subsidy, women can directly use this to start or expand their enterprise. As an example, he said that 128 products are being made from the Panchagavya of cow and are being launched in the market and the MSME organization always provides assistance for the sale of all these.

Mahamandaleshwar Swami Santoshanand Dev Maharaj, Deputy Vice Chairman of Uttarakhand MSME, who came as a special guest, also inspired women for self-employment. Women from the industry of Haridwar, educationists, doctors and representatives of social organizations were present in the program.

Dr. Pandey said that today the oriental knowledge of Yoga, established on the world stage, has become a part of modern education, and for the solution of various physical and mental problems, various wellness centers are being established as businesses, they should also be linked with MSME. We can use the available facilities and employment schemes by knowing our potential.
