450 out of 6,500 clusters assisted by Gov

ASSOCHAM's Cluster Development Report

The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry in India (Assocham) has brought out a report on Cluster Development: Fuel for Inclusive Growth. The report was launched by Uday Kumar Varma, Secretary , Ministry of Micro, Small and medium Enterprises.


According to P.K. Jain, Chairperson, ASSOCHAM National Council for SMEs, “Clusters give every industry some need base, as it helps in controlling the critical inputs thus helping manage industry requirements. Clusters help to handle similar problems of an industry and also get help from common facilities and utilities.”


Presently, there are 6,500 clusters across the country, out of which, only 450 are assisted by the government.

Launching the report Varma suggested, “The classification of the MSME sector needs to be modified to give a broader view. As done in other parts of the world, the classification should be based on employment, turnover or investment rather than having a myopic view of classifying it on the basis of investment of plant and machinery.”


ASSOCHAM is also planning to introduce the concept of e-clusters through which different industrial clusters across the country can be interconnected to share technologies and to sell products. The other initiatives to be implemented are the PPP model and assigning a Cluster Development Authority.
