The government to boost its MSME (micro, small and medium enterprises) products in international markets has decided to give upto 50 percent subsidy to exporters on total freight charges paid on good shipped through ports outside the State.

According to the draft export policy, the exporter will get reimbursement upto 50 per cent on the total cost of transportation subject to a ceiling of Rs.50, 000 on goods shipped outside State port, provided ports within the State do not have facilities for handling such cargo.

The Finance department has agreed to the proposal for providing incentives to the exporters for publicity and exposure of their merchandise.

Sectors so far identified having potential for exports include handicrafts, handloom, textiles, engineering and chemicals, marine products, agro and forest products, pharmaceuticals, electronics and software products as well as gems and jewellery.

The draft export policy which is given a final shape aims at identifying sectors which are already contributing or have the potential to contribute to exports. It will also try to find the stumbling blocks and help the sectors to overcome them to achieve their full potential.
