My firm is startup firm which i have registerd under MSME and is provided following National Industry Classification Codes (NIC code) 41, 42, 70 and 78. Now I have applied for a service contract with a Bank for Management of their Guestrooms including Housekeeping and Catering.
Being a MSME registered firm they have exempted me from following clauses :
1. Earnest Money Deposit - Exemption granted
2. ESIC, EPF and Labour Registration - Exemption granted withundertaking to get the registration done if work is awarded.
3. Past Experience : Not Exempted
Reason: The NIC codes alloted to you firm does not include CATERING (2 Digit NIC Code 56) and hence you can not be allowed to get a weaver/exemption for experience . Your Bid is hearby rejected. Part-II (Financial Bid) of your firm will not be opened.
For your Information please.

Kindly guide me, has the Bank rightly rejected my bid or should I send them a legal notice for not allowing me in the tender by rejecting my bid in technical bid.

When we apply for MSME online, there are no full range of NIC codes supported. They register only in few codes and so many not working. Please check this possibility with you. If so you can challenge the bid. Further you should apply again to amend your MSME registration and get the desired added.

You can represent the Bank to reconsider.

At this stage for a starter, litigation is not recommended.
