The Inter-Ministerial Committee constituted for development of the Leather Sector under the Chairmanship of Member (Industry), Planning Commission was assigned the task to review the status of the Indian leather industry and to suggest further measures for its growth in terms of production and exports during the Eleventh Five Year Plan Period and also to prepare a report on Leather and Leather Goods Industry for the Eleventh Five Year Plan.

The Central Government has identified that the challenges before the Indian Leather Industry are capacity inadequacy, raw material base, environmental issues, availability of the human resources and inadequate investment.

In order to address these issues the Central Government has approved 11 sub-schemes under Indian Leather Development Programme (ILDP) for implementation during the 11th Five Year Plan period with emphasis on infrastructure development, capacity building, human resource development, investment promotion and addressing environmental issues for the leather industry.
