Minister of MSME KH Muniyappa said, while speaking at the inaugural ceremony of Techmart at the India International Trade Fair (IITF) 2012.
 
The PMEGP scheme is intended at creating employment opportunities by setting up micro enterprises like rural industrial units. 
 
Under PMEGP, it is proposed to spend Rs. 97 billion to launch 400,000 projects, with margin cost of Rs. 2.3 million per project, and generation of around 3.2 million jobs in all, the Minister said.
 
Under the scheme, rural and urban entrepreneurs of general category are respectively provided subsidy of 25 percent and 15 percent of the project cost. Rural and urban entrepreneurs belonging to underprivileged sections of the society qualify for a 35 percent and 25 percent subsidy, respectively.
 
The Minister also directed the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), the nodal agency responsible for implementation of the scheme, to find ways to further develop the village and cottage industries.
 
KVIC fixes targets for its field officers and the khadi and village industries boards of different states.
