YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2014-03-06 09:00:00 – Mumbai

The delinking of Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) from the state textile policy has turned out to be a good decision. The Maharashtra state government despite global economic meltdown has received 1,331 new textile project worth Rs.12,000 crore in one and half years under the new textile policy.

They are look forward to meeting the target of Rs.40,000 crore investment sooner than the five year time frame with the delinking of TUFS.

Textile Minister Mohammed Arif Naseem Khan addressing a press conference today said that few of the projects are in the pipeline. There are ten textile parks and capital subsidy of Rs 51 crore has been given for them and Rs 16 crore interest subsidy has been disbursed to 50 projects.

With the delinking of TUFS from the state textile policy, investors need not wait for the Unique Identification (UID) number. The state can receive direct proposals prior to getting the UID number which is mandatory under TUFS.

Under the new textile policy, 7 percent interest subsidy will be provided to the entire state for spinning mills, garmenting, ginning, pressing and processing units; while the technical textile units will get six per cent and another six per cent for composite units. While, the cotton growing regions of Marathwada, Vidarbha and North Maharashtra will be given 10 percent capital subsidy.
