    The Scheme provides a focal point for modernization efforts through technology upgradation in the industry. The salient features of the Scheme are as follows:

    • Under the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS), interest reimbursement of 5% on the interest actually charged by identified financial institutions on sanctioned projects is permissible and Technology Upgradation ordinarily means induction of state of-the-art or near state-of –the –art technology;

    • Industrial Finance Corporation of India ((IFCI) is the Nodal Agency for Jute sector; and

    • Other than term loans, a number of instruments like Deferred Payment Guarantee Schemes (DPG), lease finance, non-convertible debentures, hire purchase scheme operated by NSIC etc. have also been additionally covered under the scheme.

    IFCI has co-opted three State Finance Corporations (SFCs), one State Industrial Development Corporations (SIDC), seven commercial banks, three All India Financial Institutions (AIFIs) and Exim Bank for financing the jute industry. The Technical Advisory Committee determines the eligibility for assistance under the scheme, which consist of the Textiles Commissioner as the convenor, Jute Commissioner and technical experts from the Textile Research Institutions (TRAs), industry and academic field covering the different segments.

    The following category of jute machinery is eligible for assistance under TUFS.

    (a) Jute softening & carding, drawing, spinning and weaving
    (b) Spinning and weaving/knitting of jute blends
    (c) Jute-blended garment/made-up manufacturing
    (d) Processing of jute products
    (e) Processing of jute-blended products
    (f) Material handling

    The technology levels are benchmarked in terms of specified machinery for each sector of the textiles industry. The machinery with technology levels lower than that specified is not permitted for funding under the TUF Scheme.
    The progress of sanction and disbursement under the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme, as on 31st March,2008, is at table 6.8.

    Thumbs up Jute Sector - Construction Of Retting Tanks.

    Jute Sector

    MINI MISSION – III

    3. Construction Of Retting Tanks.

    Since retting is the most important part of jute cultivation in terms of quality fibre production, non-availability of adequate retting water poses hindrance in production of quality output. Encouraged by the successful outcome of our earlier project on construction of Community Retting Tanks, it is proposed to construct Retting Tanks to facilitate retting at least one in each jute producing districts of India in phased manner. In next five years, it is proposed to construct 50 retting tanks in staggered manner to provide retting water to the jute growers. It can also be utilized for demonstration and adoption of new retting methods like Biotechnological Retting Method by use of inoculums in order to improve the quality of jute fibre as well as reducing retting period. 90% of the cost of construction of retting tank would be sponsored under this scheme, and the remaining 10% would be contributed by the beneficiary. Work on 6 retting tanks out of total 50 retting tanks to be constructed in this scheme has already been started. Out of which work of two places have been completed and another 4 places it will start after getting approval of PMC.
