SIMA appeals new govt to resolve TUF issues

The Southern India Mills Association (SIMA), an apex body of spinners in India, appealed to the new Central Government to resolve Technology Upgradation Fund (TUF) issues to boost job creation and exports. Resolving issues in the TUF scheme and releasing the pending subsidies to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore on a fast track would help the industry to create jobs for lakhs of people immediately, SIMA chairman P Nataraj said.

This would also bring huge investments, thus creating jobs for millions of people and boost exports, he said. Nataraj also said that special export garment package and enhanced rebate on State and Central taxes and levies benefits would yield the desired results only when the TUF issues were resolved.

The textile industry was the single largest employment provider in the country next only to agriculture providing jobs to over 110 million people, especially the rural women and people below the poverty line. Realising the importance of making this sector globally competitive and grabbing the opportunities emerging in the post-WTO era, the NDA Government launched TUFS in 1999 and the same Government extended it up to March 31, 2022, by allocating Rs 17,822 crore.

This budget allocation included Rs 12,671 crore for committed liabilities of Modified Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (M-TUFS), Revised Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (R-TUFS) and Rs 5,151 crore for Amended Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (A-TUFS), Nataraj pointed out.

The flagship programme of TUF attracted over Rs 3.75 lakh crore of investments in the industry during the last two decades and created jobs for over 10 million people, apart from enable the Indian textile industry to become globally competitive and increase its exports by manifolds, he said.
