Government to accept Textile PLI applications from Jan-22
The government has already announced an elaborate production linked incentive (PLI) scheme for 13 industrial sectors in India, with an overall allocation of Rs.197,000 crore. The idea of the PLI scheme is to encourage the production of goods in India with a view to create output, jobs and collateral downstream benefits in India.
The PLI scheme is an extension of the make-in-India plan which intends to reduce the dependence on other countries and encourage domestic manufacture. It will also be a scheme to encourage foreign manufacturers to make India their production base and avail of these incentives to give a boost to Indian infrastructure in the process.
Out of the 13 sectors identified for the PLI scheme, an important focus area is Textiles. The government has allocated Rs.10,683 crore over a period of 5 years for the textiles scheme. This scheme will encourage the manufacture of MMF apparel, MMF fabrics and production of technical textiles.
The PLI scheme for the textile industry will accept applications from businesses effective from 01st January 2022. The application window will remain open for a period of 1 month from 01st January 2022 till 31st January 2022. Companies looking to avail the scheme can apply from the following link (https://pli.texmin.gov.in/mainapp/).
