TCS to revamp Government's e-Marketplace

The government has appointed Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) as a strategic partner to revamp the Government e-Marketplace (GeM), the IT firm said.

The objective is to transform GeM into a state-of-the-art public procurement platform and enhance transparency, efficiency, and inclusivity.

At present, GeM boasts a gross merchandise value (GMV) of over Rs 2 tn, facilitating transactions between more than 70,000 buyer organisations and an excess of 6.5 m sellers and service providers. These include 800,000 medium and small enterprises.

GeM serves as an end-to-end online marketplace for central and state government bodies, including public sector undertakings. It streamlines the procurement of common use goods and services.

While the current platform has seen success, there are architectural challenges that need to be addressed. The partnership with TCS aims to overcome these challenges and meet the evolving requirements of both buyers and sellers.

The new GeM platform will embrace e-commerce and e-marketplace principles, featuring a multi-tenant, multi-rule, multilingual, open-source, and open-API-based architecture.

The aim is to make the platform scalable and designed to accommodate the anticipated six-fold growth in GMV over the next six years.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is a bright shining star in the galaxy of Tata Group companies.

TCS has been one of the favourite stocks of investors because of the performance it has delivered since its listing.

If you had invested Rs 1 lakh in TCS shares at the issue price of Rs 850 in the IPO in 2004, the value of that investment today would be around Rs 3,176,000, a return of almost 3,000% by August 2022.

With strong fundamentals, it stands among the 5 best long-term companies of 2023.

Adani Ports Q1 profit zooms 83%

Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone on 8 August 2023 reported a 82.6% rise in consolidated net profit to Rs 21.1 bn for the June 2023 quarter from Rs 11.6 bn reported last year.

The company's revenue from operations climbed 23.5% to Rs 62.5 bn from Rs 50.6 bn a year back. The company's topline saw a positive impact from additional revenue generated by fresh acquisitions.
