Indian govt extends CDP scheme for sericulture to XII Plan

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, Government of India, has approved the continuation of the centrally sponsored scheme of Catalytic Development Programme (CDP) of the Ministry of Textiles, relating to sericulture sector, during the XII Plan period (2012-17). 
 
The CDP comprises three major sectors, viz. (a) Mulberry Sector; (b) Vanya Sector, and, (c) Post Cocoon Sector. For the 12th Plan period, the CDP has been redesigned to meet the sectoral requirements, and to ensure that the sector grows at a healthy pace.
 
While some of the existing components of CDP have been deepened/modified by taking up certain additional inputs/sub-components, certain new interventions have also been proposed in order to meet the zonal requirements.
 
 A new component viz. “Special Initiatives (Flexi Fund)” has also been proposed to address critical requirements for implementation of sericulture projects. 
 
During the 12th Plan, the core objective of the CDP is to scale up production, particularly, production of quality Bivoltine and improved cross breed silk cocoons in the country through cluster approach. 
 
For the purpose, an outlay of Rs. 8.89 billion has been earmarked, and the funding will be continued in the ratio of 80:10:10 for Central, State & Beneficiary in Special Status States (8 Northeastern states, J&K, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh & Jharkhand). 
 
The scheme would support the efforts of States to achieve total production of 32,000 MTs of silk, which would be an increase of 38.77 percent over 11th Plan production of 23,060 MTs. 
 
The scheme also has a specific target of achieving production of 5,000 MT Bivoltine and 6,000 MT improved gradable cross breed mulberry silk (2A/3A Grade and above silk for consumption in power loom) by the end of 12th Plan period. 
 
It would also help in generating direct and indirect employment to the tune of 9.24 million by the last year of 12th Plan. 
 
According to a report ‘Evaluation of Catalytic Development Programme during XI Plan’ prepared by the National Productivity Council, CDP has contributed substantially to the growth and development of sericulture sector in the country. 
 
During the XI Plan, employment in India’s sericulture sector has grown by about 1.56 million and has reached the level of 7.56 million people, the report adds.
 
“This indicates that considerable interest in sericulture activities has been generated in the recent years through the intervention of CDP scheme. Moreover, many non-traditional sericulture practicing states have already taken up sericulture activities as a source of income and employment generation,” states the report.
