The study establishes that the labour Productivity of MMEs significantly associated with location of enterprise, nature of enterprise, nature of operation, life-span of enterprise and government assistance. Productivity of MME is high if it runs business in outside household premises and it has spent higher life time and received assistance from the government. Productivity of MMEs is high if it is owned by general caste household and for seasonal and casual enterprises. The labour productivity also depends on capital-labour ratio.

The expanding status of growth is significantly realized for high productive, high profitable, rural located, Establishment and perennial enterprises. The growth is contracting for low productive, seasonal and casual enterprises. It seems to be stagnating for low productive and Own Account Enterprises. For Establishment enterprises the status of growth is expanding where as for OAEs status of growth is stagnating. Growth Status of MMEs is not significantly affected by government assistance.
