The government plans to peg the non-plan expenditure grants, if not increase it and will be pegged at 2004-05 levels rather than reduce them by 10 percent per annum, which will help keep up the basic maintenance of machinery and equipments at institutions like ATIRA, informed Mr V Srinivas, Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Textiles

Mr Srinivas spoke exclusively to fibre2fashion on the sidelines of the road show on extension of 'Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks' (SITPs) organised by the Union Ministry of Textiles in Ahmedabad on Friday.

Mr Srinivas was replying to a query posed by fibre2fashion on modernizing equipments and machinery at Ahmedabad Textile Research Association (ATIRA), when on a guided tour of the testing facilities of the institution.

Secondly, he continued, “Under the non-plan capital grants, funding under TRS has been coming down, as the government plans to peg the non-plan expenditure grants, if not increase it and will be pegged at 2004-05 levels rather than reduce them by 10 percent per annum.

“This will help take care of the basic maintenance, up-gradation and modernization of machinery and equipments at institutions like ATIRA, which operates under the Ministry of Textiles and under the plan, more number of visage projects will be sanctioned”, he added by saying.

When asked about the integrated skill development programme, he said, “The integrated skill development programme for which Rs 2.29 billion has been sanctioned will help provide a kind of financial base for a greater skill build up”.
