PLI scheme for Textile sector

PLI scheme For Textile Sector

PLI scheme for textile sector PLI scheme for textile sector PLI

Government has approved Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme for Textiles. With this, India is poise to regain its dominance in Global Textiles Trade PLI scheme for textile sector

Leveraging Economies of Scale, the scheme will help Indian companies to emerge as Global Champions

Help create additional employment of over 7.5 lakh people directly and several lakhs more for supporting activities

Scheme will also pave the way for participation of women in large numbers

Incentives worth Rs. 10,683 crore will be provided to industry over five years

It is expect that this scheme will result in fresh investment of above

Rs 19,000 crore and additional production turnover of over Rs.3 lakh crore in five years

Higher priority for investment in Aspirational Districts & Tier 3/4 towns

Scheme will positively impact especially States like Gujarat, UP, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, AP, Telangana, Odisha etc.

Taking steps forward towards the vision of an ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’, Government led by Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has approved the PLI Scheme for

Textiles for MMF Apparel, MMF Fabrics and 10 segments/ products of Technical Textiles with a budgetary outlay of Rs. 10,683 crore.
