'SFURTI' Scheme for development of khadi clusters

Mar '08
The Government has launched the Scheme of Fund for Regeneration of Traditional Industries (SFURTI) for development of around 100 clusters from khadi, village and coir sectors with a total plan outlay of Rs. 97.25 crore.

The Scheme envisages need-based assistance for replacement of production equipment, setting up of common facility centres (CFC), product development, quality improvement, improved marketing, training and capacity building. 118 clusters (33 from khadi, 59 from Village Industries and 26 from coir) have been approved for their development under this scheme.

Under SFURTI, the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (erstwhile Ministry of Agro and Rural Industries) does not receive any proposals directly from State/UT Governments.

The cluster development proposals are received by the Nodal Agencies, i.e. Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) and Coir Board from Khadi Institutions, NGOs, institutions of the Central and State Governments and semi Government institutions with the consent of the State Governments.

After examining the proposal, the same are forwarded by the Nodal Agency to the Scheme Steering Committee of SFURTI for consideration.

This information was given by the Minister of Small Scale Industries and Agro & Rural Industries, Shri Mahabir Prasad in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha.
