The advantages of using GeM is that buyers will get to choose from a list of products for individual categories as well as search, compare, select and buy. Further, the process is transparent and buyers will be able to rate the vendor. Further, there is also an easy return policy. In turn, the sellers will get direct access to all government departments and new product suggestion facility.
