The Resham Shilpi Mahasansthan would be restructured as West Bengal Silk Development Corporation.
 
Ms. Banerjee said that setting up industries under the public-private-partnership (PPP) mode is welcome, but government incentives would be based on factors like employment generation and production.
 
Under its industrial policy, the state is targeting creation of 6.6 million jobs over the next five years.
 
The MSME policy envisages special concessions to cooperatives and self-help groups, and setting up of clusters in all districts of the state.
