New Delhi (30.03.2024): Government e Marketplace has closed this financial year with ₹4 lakh crore in Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) - doubling its GMV clocked at the end of previous Fiscal Year. This testifies to the portal’s unique digital capabilities and functionalities that have facilitated greater efficiency, transparency, and seamlessness in public procurement. The portal started its trailblazing journey to ₹ 4 lakh crore-landmark with ₹ 422 crore in GMV in 2016. 
The procurement of Services through the GeM portal has proved to be a pivotal force behind this staggering GMV. Nearly 50 per cent of this GMV has been attributed to the procurement of Services, displaying a remarkable surge of 205 per cent in terms of Services procured on GeM last FY.

Increased engagement from States has also mobilized this phenomenal growth in GMV. In this FY, highest procuring State like Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi, have helped States well surpass the earmarked public procurement target of this year. The contribution made by central entities including Ministries and CPSEs has also greatly spurred the GMV. These Government organization have contributed to nearly 85 per cent of this ₹4 lakh crore milestone. Notably, Ministry of Coal, Ministry of Power and Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas and their subsidiaries have emerged as the highest procuring entities at the central level.
GeM’s vast network of 1.5 lakh+ Government buyers and 21 lakh sellers and service providers have been made this incredible feat possible.
