The Commerce Ministry closed down its nearly 100-year-old public procurement arm — the Directorate General of Supplies and Disposals (DGS&D) — on October 31, a senior official said.

The closure of the DGS&D, which traces its origin to London during the British raj, follows setting up of the government e-market (GeM) platform last year for public procurement of goods and services.
