If you want to do online shopping, then which website’s name is remembered first? Amazon? Flipkart? Or Myntra? Apart from this, there are many other websites from where we order our daily necessities. Because we think these websites are economical. Meaning there the goods are available at a lower price than the market. But if we tell you that there is another option that is the cheapest, about which the general public knows very little. So?

The name of that website is Gem i.e. Government E-Market Place. This is a government website and the goods in it are cheaper than other e-commerce websites.

Gem is a government market place. It is operated by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY), Government of India. Gem is running since August 9th, 2016. Here customers can buy products at affordable prices. As of today, there are more than 7,000 products listed on Gem in 150 different categories. All the necessary parameters are taken care of before listing any product.

Is the stuff really cheap?
Absolutely. For your understanding, let us tell you that if the goods that are available in the market worth hundred rupees, then the same goods are available on Gem for ninety rupees.

For example, the LG laptop which is showing Rs 99,959 on Gem will be Rs 1,05,999 and Rs 1,10,000 on other popular apps. That is, there is a difference of four to 10 thousand in the price. At the same time, Intex’s LED TV is priced at Rs 34,999, it is available on open market and other shopping apps for Rs 35,200 and Rs 38,799. Here too there is a difference of 200 to 3700 rupees in the price. However, prices may fluctuate depending on the sale or availability of goods.

In the Economic Survey conducted in the year 2021-22, a total of twenty two products were compared on Gem and other e-commerce websites, it was found that there are ten such products which were about 10 percent cheaper on the Gem market place. GeM is a completely paperless and cashless website. The user interface (UI) of the website is very simple and it is not difficult to return the purchased product. It is also very easy for sellers to register on the website and list their products. Care has been taken on Gem that there should be no human intervention from the listing of the product to the placement.

Now what, if the festive season is knocking, then the shopping will also be fierce. In such a situation, once it is made to turn to Gem Market Place.
