In case of disputes, application to Micro and Small Enterprises Facilitation Council (MSEFC) would trigger the conciliation and arbitration process.

Therefore, the Buyer should ensure the best ways to resolve the disputes, if any, instead approaching to MSEFC in the initial stages of dispute.

The Buyers need to ensure that the Buyer does not owe any outstanding amount including interest due to MSM Enterprises for more than 15 days. Otherwise, the Buyer needs to disclose this non-payment in the Annual Financials of the Buyer.
