Textiles Ministry to organise outreach prog for stakeholders

New Delhi, Feb 12 (UNI) In order to hold interactions with stakeholders to help them avail the support and outreach for 100-day programme announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Textiles Ministry is organising a programme for Textiles sector MSMEs on February 13.
Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Dr Thawar Chand Gehlot will be the chief guest. Union Textiles Minister Smriti Zubin Irani will preside over the function. Minister of State for Textiles Ajay Tamta will also be present.
An exhibition showcasing achievements of the textiles sector MSMEs will also be held during the occasion.
The Prime Minister had launched the support and outreach 100 days programme for MSMEs on November 2, 2018 identifying 100 districts in various sectors across the country. Amongst these, 39 districts were identified for textiles sector -- 12 for handloom, 19 for handicraft and 8 for power loom.
Under the support and outreach 100 days programme, various activities have been undertaken in identified districts for creating synergy for MSMEs in textile sector like holding camps for Mudra Loan in collaboration with local bank, enrolment of beneficiaries on e-dhaga, distribution of tool kits to beneficiaries, registration and distribution of Pehchancard to artisans and weavers, popularization of 24x7 help line, quality certification and social security.
With a view to consolidate progress under the programme, district level events were organised in each identified district on February 9 and 10, 2019. Further exhibition of handloom, handicraft and powerloom products were also organized in the State Bhavans of the identified districts in Delhi on February 11 and 12.
Over 75 per cent of the garment industry in India is in the MSME sector and the 12 initiatives covered in the package would benefit most units in the industry. The two per cent interest subvention for new loans, two per cent additional subvention for export credits and clearance of loans upto Rs 1 crore within 59 minutes would help the India's garment industry to address working capital problems. Credit based on upcoming receivables under e-discounting system is another welcome step in this direction.
Benefits to Ministry of Textiles include skilling of youth in textile sector, thus, providing requisite skilled manpower to the textile industry. These incentives would provide support in manufacturing of quality tools to improve productivity of MSMEs and enable them to become competitive in national and international markets. It will also provide trained manpower and consultancy in related areas. Since Textiles industry is rapidly moving forward towards modernization, expansion and integration, these initiatives will be immensely beneficial to the textile sector.
The various announcements and deliverables focused on access to credit, access to market, hand holding and facilitation support measures for MSME sector will substantially encourage and uplift the Indian textile segment, as most of the manufacturing units of this segment are MSMEs.
The MSME focused outreach programme will give boost to the MMF textile manufacturing units in textile hubs like Gujarat, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh. The initiatives are gifts to MSMEs and they will not only enhanced MSMEs spirit and confidence level including competitiveness but they would also be able to focus on increasing their business activity.
The initiatives taken under the MSME outreach programme will provide a much-needed fillip and encouragement to the MSME sector which contributes significantly to the textiles exports.
The sanctioning of loan in less than an hour, will save a lot of time of MSM entrepreneurs. The announcement of the stoppage of visit by inspector, the decision of his visit through a computerized random allotment, uploading of reports on portal within 48 hours, would enable MSMEs to do hassle free business.
Government has also launched a special drive for opening of bank accounts and promotion of digital payments in the textiles sector by organizing special camps along with micro-ATM facilities at weaving clusters.
Joint Secretary-level IAS officers have been designated as Prabhari in each district to work with nodal officers appointed by respective sectoral heads.
