GS1 India, a standards organization set up by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Government e-Marketplace (GeM). This will enable GeM’s buyers and vendors toaccess rich, accurate and standardized information on attributes of thousands of products across categories, empowering them to make more informed decisions.
GeM will access product data from GS1 India’s DataKart, the National repository of information on attributes of millions of retail products in the country. The categories get populated directly by manufacturers and brand owners. Every data will undergo validity checks based on globally accepted GS1 standards prior to being published for access by buyers.
