The Government of Karnataka through the Department of Handloom and Textiles has invested Rs 13 billion under various schemes during the current financial year.

 

Addressing a one-day workshop on the government’s new textile policy in Gulbarga city, DA Venkatesh, Commissioner for Department of Handloom and Textiles, said the Department has spent Rs 13 billion for establishing textile parks, modernizing existing units of textile and handloom industries and for supporting micro, small and medium enterprises during the ongoing financial year.

 

Under its textile policy for training skilled manpower, the government has set up 154 Skill Development Centres, Venkatesh informed the trainees and entrepreneurs at the workshop, and urged them to take benefit of the opportunities provided by the new textile policy and create more employment opportunities in the state.

 

Owing the new textile policy 2013-18, about 500,000 skilled trainees got jobs in 4,500 garment units spread across the state, Venkatesh said, and added that in the last two years, around 700 new textile industries have been set up in the state.

The new policy provides interest subsidy for projects costing up to Rs 990 million, as part of the amount sanctioned for credit-linked capital subsidy, for small and medium investors.

 

For units investing Rs 100 million to Rs 990 million, the credit-linked capital subsidy is in the range of 15 per cent to 20 per cent with an upper limit of Rs. 60 million. For micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) with investment up to Rs 100 million, the credit-linked subsidy is in the range of 15 per cent to 20 per cent, but with a ceiling of Rs 20 million.

 

In addition, a subsidy of 15 per cent to 20 per cent with upper ceiling of Rs 10 million is provided for modernization of existing units, while cooperative spinning mills are given a subsidy of 20 per cent with upper limit of Rs 20 million for revival and up-gradation.
