    Revised Guidelines of the Scheme

    Guidelines Of The Scheme For Integrated Textile Parks
    During The 11th Five Year Plan


    1. Objectives of the Scheme:

    1.1 The ‘Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP)’ was launched by merging two schemes, namely, Apparel Parks for Exports Scheme (APES) and the Textiles Centre Infrastructure Development Scheme (TCIDS).

    1.2 Primary objective of the SITP is to provide the industry with world-class infrastructure facilities for setting up their textile units. The scheme would facilitate textile units to meet international environmental and social standards.

    1.3 SITP would create new textile parks of international standards at potential growth centers. This scheme envisages engaging of a panel of professional agencies for project identification and execution.

    1.4 Each Integrated Textile Park (ITP) would normally have 50 units. The number of entrepreneurs and the resultant investments in each ITP could vary from project to project. However, aggregate investment in land, factory buildings and Plant & Machinery by the entrepreneurs in a Park shall be atleast twice the cost of common infrastructure proposed for the Park..

    1.5 The ITPs may also be set up in the Special Economic Zones (SEZs), in which case the special provisions of SEZs would be applicable for them. In case these are set up outside SEZs, proposal may be pursued with the Ministry of Commerce & Industry to declare the ITP as SEZ, if it is so desired.

    Guidelines Of The Scheme For Integrated Textile Parks
    During The 11th Five Year Plan

    2. Scope of the Scheme:

    2.1 The scheme targets industrial clusters/locations with high growth potential, which require strategic interventions by way of providing world-class infrastructure support. The project cost will cover common infrastructure and buildings for production/support activities (including textiles engineering, accessories. packaging), depending on the needs of the ITP. There will be flexibility in setting up ITPs to suit the local requirements.

    2.2 An ITP will have the following components:

    (a) Group A - Land.
    (b) Group B – Common Infrastructure like compound wall, roads, drainage, water supply, electricity supply including captive power plant, effluent treatment, telecommunication lines etc.
    (c) Group C – Buildings for common facilities like testing laboratory (including equipments), design center(including equipments), training center(including equipments), trade center/display center, ware housing facility/ raw material depot, one packaging unit, crèche, canteen, workers hostel, offices of service providers, labour rest and recreation facilities, marketing support system (backward / forward linkages) etc.
    (d) Group D – Factory buildings for production purposes.
    (e) Group E- Plant & machinery.

    2.3 The items covered under each of the above Groups are illustrative only, and every ITP may be developed to suit the specific production and business requirements of members of ITP. The Project Scrutiny Committee (PSC) will recommend on merit the inclusion or otherwise of a component in the project cost on case to case basis.

    2.4 The total Project Cost for the purpose of this Scheme includes the cost on account of components of ITP, as listed under Groups A, B, C and D above, provided the ownership of the factory buildings vests with the SPV.

    2.5 The SPV will, however, have the option of seeking financial support from Government of India for components under Groups B and C only, if factory buildings are individually owned.

    3. Implementation Structure:

    3.1 Industry Associations/Groups of Entrepreneurs would be the main promoters of the ITPs. At each ITP, there would be a separate Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) formed with the representatives of local Industry, Financial Institutions, State and Central Government. SPV shall invariably be a Corporate Body registered under the Companies Act. Any different structure for the SPV requires the approval of the Project Approval Committee. The SPVs shall have operational autonomy so that they do not become surrogate Public Sector Enterprises or be controlled by Central/State Governments.

    3.2 MOT shall appoint a panel of professional agencies, which have considerable experience and expertise in the area of infrastructure development, as Project Management Consultants (PMCs) for implementing the Scheme.

    3.3 The PMCs will be responsible for the speedy implementation of the Projects in a transparent and professional manner so as to achieve high degree of quality at a low cost acceptable to the members of the SPV for which fee will be paid to the PMCs by the Ministry of Textiles.

    3.4 The PMCs will report to Ministry of Textiles, which shall directly supervise the implementation of projects.

    3.5 A PMC will discharge the following functions:

    i) Identifying the locations for setting up the ITPs based on a scientific assessment of the demand and potential of the area.
    ii) Facilitating formation of SPV at each project level with the participation of local industry.
    iii) Preparation of Project Plan including the setting of standards for infrastructure.
    iv) Structure the projects and submit the same for appraisal by Project Scrutiny Committee (PSC).
    v) Assist the SPVs in selection of agencies for preparation of bid documents, construction, operation and maintenance of the facilities in the Project.
    vi) Assist the SPV in achieving financial closure.
    vii) Monitor the implementation and submit periodical progress reports to the MOT.
    viii) To liaise with the State Governments to resolve state-related problems.
    ix) Ensure timely completion of project(s) as fixed by the PAC.

    3.6 These SPVs would be the focal points for implementation of the Scheme, playing the following role:
    i) The SPV would conceptualize, formulate, achieve financial closure, implement and manage the infrastructure.
    ii) The SPV would procure land, cost of which could be built into the project cost.
    iii) After developing the infrastructure, SPV would allocate sites to Industry for setting up units.
    iv) SPV would also facilitate securing bank finance required for setting up units in ITP.
    v) SPV would be responsible for maintaining the utilities and infrastructure created for ITP by collecting service and user charges.
    vi) The SPV has to be so structured as to be self-sustaining with a positive revenue stream.
    vii) SPV would appoint contractors/consultants in a fair and transparent manner. In order to ensure timely completion of the project, SPV will obtain appropriate performance guarantee from consultants/contractors.

    3.7 The ongoing projects sanctioned under the TCIDS/APES will continue to be provided Government assistance, as per the provisions of the respective scheme, out of the budget provision for SITP.
