We spoke to Gokul Sagpariya, President, Rajkot Engineering Association, to understand the business challenges confronting the smb segment in Rajkot. Here are the excerpts:

PCQ: What type of companies comprise the REA?

Gokul: We manufacture mostly small engineering too: ls and automobile components. More than 2000 auto parts are manufactured in Rajkot and exported globally. We can proudly claim there is no car in the world that does not have a part manufactured in Rajkot.

 PCQ: How has IT helped Rajkot manufacturers in achieving business success? 

Gokul: Most of the mid-sized to large companies use big and costly IT solutions such as ERP but majority of the small units use software for document management, workflow management and accounting. Miracle is the most popular accounts software used (and not Tally).

PCQ: Your thoughts on the spirit of entrepreneurship in Rajkot?

Gokul: The businesses here started as one shop units and have grown rapidly over the years all due to ingenious efforts by the Rajkot entrepreneurs. This is one city where more than govt. help, the association and cooperation amongst entrepreneurs has led to large-scale business success. We are happy with the business environment in this city and don’t demand any sops from the govt. for promoting our business.
