Taking steps forward towards the vision of an ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’, the Government led by Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has approved the PLI Scheme for Textiles for MMF Apparel, MMF Fabrics and ten segments/ products of Technical Textiles with a budgetary outlay of Rs. 10,683 crore. PLI for Textiles and RoSCTL, RoDTEP, and other measures of Government in the sector, e.g. providing raw material at competitive prices, skill development etc., will herald a new age in textiles manufacturing.
PLI scheme for Textiles is part of the overall announcement of PLI Schemes for 13 sectors made earlier during the Union Budget 2021-22, with an outlay of Rs. 1.97 lakh crore. With the announcement of PLI Schemes for 13 sectors, minimum production in India is expected to be around Rs. 37.5 lakh crore over five years, and the minimum expected employment over five years is nearly one crore.
PLI scheme for Textiles will promote the production of high-value MMF fabrics, Garments and Technical Textiles in the country. The incentive structure has been so formulated that the industry will be encouraged to invest in fresh capacities in these segments. This will give a major push to the growing high-value MMF segment, which will complement the efforts of the cotton and other natural fibre-based textiles industry in generating new opportunities for employment and trade, resultantly helping India regain its dominant historical status in global textiles trade.
The Technical Textiles segment is a new age textile, whose application in several sectors of the economy, including infrastructure, water, health and hygiene, defence, security, automobiles, aviation, etc., will improve the efficiencies in those sectors of the economy. The Government has also launched a National Technical Textiles Mission in the past for promoting R&D efforts in that sector. PLI will help further in attracting investment in this segment.
There are two types of investment possible with a different set of incentive structures. Any person, (which includes firm/company) willing to invest minimum ₹300 Crore in Plant, Machinery, Equipment and Civil Works (excluding land and administrative building cost) to produce products of Notified lines (MMF Fabrics, Garment) and products of Technical Textiles, shall be eligible to apply for participation in the first part of the scheme. In the second part, any person (which includes a firm/company) willing to invest a minimum of ₹100 Crore shall be eligible to apply for participation in this part of the scheme. In addition, priority will be given for investment in Aspirational Districts, Tier 3, Tier 4 towns, and rural areas, and because of this priority, the industry will be incentivized to move to the backward area. This scheme will positively impact especially States like Gujarat, UP, Maharashtra, Tamilnadu, Punjab, AP, Telangana, Odisha etc.
It is estimated that over the period of five years, the PLI Scheme for Textiles will lead to a fresh investment of more than Rs.19,000 crore, cumulative turnover of over Rs.3 lakh crore will be achieved under this scheme and will create additional employment opportunities for over 7.5 lakh jobs in this sector and several lakhs more for supporting activities. The textiles industry predominantly employs women. Therefore, the scheme will empower women and increase their participation informal economy.
