New Delhi: GS1 India, a standards organisation set up by the commerce and industry ministry, on Friday inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with public procurement platform GeM.
It will enable GeM's buyers and vendors to access accurate and standardised information on attributes of thousands of products across categories, empowering them to make more informed decisions, the ministry said in a statement.
Government-e-Marketplace (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.
Every data will undergo validity checks based on globally accepted GS1 standards prior to being published for access by buyers, it said.
