Government Subsidy For Sericulture

Maharashtra is a non-traditional silk producing state that produces both Mulberry and Tasar Silks. It occupies 1 st position in silk production among non-traditional states and 13th position among 29 silk producing states.

The State has huge sericulture prospects with suitable soil and environmental condition in the state. Efforts will be made to increase the production of silk cocoons and silk yarn

Incentives and Measures:

The following incentives will be provided to the sericulture farmers to produce and promote silk production and tap the growing market demand.

Farming and Cocoon Production

Promoting sericulture and group farming to create a guaranteed source of income for farmers. Private sector involvement will be promoted to sustain sericulture

 ii To increase the average cocoon production from 60kg to 70kg per batch of 100 Disease Free Laying (DFLs).

 iii To increase the capacity of the government grainage center at Gadhinglaj, Dist. Kolhapur and to set up a new grainage center at Aurangabad, to meet the demands of DFLs. Additionally, two additional grainage centres will be set up in Zone 1 and Zone 3. All Government subsidies will be given to the DFLs produced within the State.

 iv To develop as a basic seed farm in Suleran district Kolhapur, Amboli district Sindhudurg, Chikalthana Dist. Aurangabad and at Khor Dist Buldhana in the state. To supply quality DFLs to the farmers in the state by rearing P-3 and P-2 DFLs.

v Setting up of private and government silk cocoon production centers, Chawki centers, nurseries, etc. will be encouraged. vi 100% DFL supply through Chawki centers by encouraging private entrepreneurs.

vii Mulberry silk farming will be increased by 10,000 acres in next 5 years. viii Target to increase 2000 Tasar beneficiaries in 5 years.

 ix Tasar Silk farming will be increased through greater plantation of Ain / Arjun trees in collaboration with the Forest Department. x Tasar is a forest farm plantation and hence the beneficiary area’s ceiling will be increased from 2 Ha to 4 Ha in areas having Ain / Arjun trees.

xi The benefits under the current Sericulture scheme are limited to holdings of 1 acre which limits provision of “farm ponds”. In view of providing irrigation, the benefits will be extended to holdings of 5 acres while keeping the costs same for the unskilled component.

Processing

 i. The State shall support in establishment of Paithani weavers’ clusters at village level with minimum of 20 weavers in one cluster.

 ii. 2 Drying centres and godown facilities will be made available to store and preserve Tasar silk cocoons.
