With
a view to realise the aim of Aatmanirbhar Bharat initiative and to position
India strongly on the global textiles map, the Government of India on Wednesday
(6 October) approved the setting up of 7 Mega Integrated Textile Region and
Apparel (PM MITRA) parks as announced in Union Budget for 2021-22.

 

PM
MITRA is inspired by the 5F vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The ‘5F’
Formula encompasses – Farm to fibre; fibre to factory; factory to fashion;
fashion to foreign. This integrated vision will help furthering the growth of
textile sector in the economy. No other competing nation has a complete textile
ecosystem like us. India is strong in all five Fs.

 

The
seven MITRA parks will be setup at greenfield / brownfield sites located in
different willing states. Proposals of state governments having ready
availability of contiguous and encumbrance-free land parcel of over 1,000 acres
along with other textiles related facilities & ecosystem are welcome.

 

Maximum
Development Capital Support (DCS) of Rs 500 crore to all Greenfield PM MITRA
and a maximum of Rs 200 crore to brownfield PM MITRA will be provided for
development of common infrastructure (at 30% of the project cost) and Rs 300 crore
of Competitiveness Incentive Support (CIS) will also be provided to each PM
MITRA
Park
for early establishment of textiles manufacturing units in PM MITRA
.
State Government supports will include provision of
1,000 acre land for development of a world class industrial estate.

 

For
a greenfield PM MITRA Park, the GoI development capital support will be 30% of
the project cost, with a cap of Rs 500 crore. For brownfield sites, after
assessment, development capital support at 30% of project cost of balance
infrastructure and other support facilities to be developed and restricted to a
limit of Rs 200 crore. This is in a form of viability gap funding to make the
project attractive for participation of private sector.

 

The
PM MITRA parks will have:

  • Ø  Core
    Infrastructure: incubation centre & plug & play facility, developed
    factory sites, roads, power, water and waste water system, common processing
    house & CETP and other related facilities e.g. design centre, testing
    centres etc.
  • Ø  Support
    Infrastructure: Workers’ hostels & housing, logistics park, warehousing,
    medical, training & skill development facilities

PM
MITRA will develop 50% area for pure manufacturing activity, 20% area for
utilities, and 10% of area for commercial development.

 

PM
MITRA
Park
will be developed by a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) which will be owned by
State Government and Government of India in a Public Private Partnership (PPP)
Mode. The Master Developer will not only develop the Industrial Park but also
maintain it during the concession period. Selection of this Master Developer
will happen based on objective criteria developed jointly by State and Central
Governments.

 

SPV
in which State Government has majority ownership will be entitled to receive
part of the lease rental from developed industrial sites and will be able to
use that for further expansion of textiles industry in the area by expanding
the PM MITRA Park, providing skill development initiatives and other welfare
measures for workers.

 

Government
of India will also provide a fund of Rs 300 Crore for each PM MITRA Park to
incentivise manufacturing units to get established. This will be known as
Competitiveness Incentive Support (CIS) and will be paid upto 3% of turnover of
a newly established unit in PM MITRA Park. Such support is crucial for a new
project under establishment which has not been able to break even and needs
support till it is able to scale up production and be able to establish its
viability.

 

Convergence
with other Central Government and State Government Schemes is available as per
their eligibility under the guidelines of those schemes. This will enhance the
competitiveness of the textiles industry, by helping it in achieving economies
of scale and will create huge job opportunities for millions of people.
Leveraging economies of scale, the scheme will help Indian companies to emerge
as global champions.
