VII. Brief description:

During the X Plan, the sector has seen a moderate growth because of various reasons like higher beneficiaries' contribution, subsidy level, moderate involvement of States and lack of provision in State Budgets, improper forward and backward linkages, non-flexibility of Schemes, poor flow of credit to the sector from the Banks/Financial Institutions etc.  The Schemes approved by the EFC/CCEA could not take of to the expected level due to lack of sufficient time as some of the Schemes were approved only during March 2006.  However, there has been a considerable achievement in implementing the Schemes and good response from the beneficiaries for these Schemes.

The components for post cocoon sector implemented during the X Plan have been evaluated by the TERI and the findings of the evaluation study on Post Cocoon Sector are as follows;

Keeping in view the importance of production of high-grade bivoltine raw silk and Vanya silk in bulk quantity to reduce imports, and creating more employment in rural/semi-urban areas through sericulture practices and silk Industries, all the Schemes implemented during the X Plan, are proposed to be continued with modifications (except two Schemes viz. “Assistance to Quality Service Clubs for cocoon testing and raw silk grading” and “Working capital interest subsidy under support to reeling units” which are dropped) during the XI Plan. The Schemes so proposed to continue, are modified keeping in view of the suitability and acceptability in the field.  Emphasis has been made to projectise the approaches for development of post cocoon areas including viable systems for cocoon and yarn marketing, reeling, processing, weaving etc. under State and Co-operative sector.  Apart from the Schemes implemented under X Plan, new components are also proposed to give thrust to bivoltine programme and for the overall development of the Post-cocoon Sector.       

VIII. Components under the package during XI Plan:

The various Post-cocoon components proposed to be implemented are in the form of a package covering major three areas viz., Silk Reeling / Spinning, Silk Weaving and Silk Wet Processing.

A.  Silk Reeling and Spinning Sector:

Reeling forms a vital link in converting the agricultural produce viz. Cocoons into an industrial product - the yarn.  Reeling involves a series of intricate process converting the cocoons into raw silk. The reeling sector in India is cottage based and highly decentralized, employing a variety of reeling devices viz., Charka, cottage basin, domestic basin and multi-end reeling machinery. The Package consists of the following components. 

B.  Silk Weaving Sector:

This sector is the processing of converting yarn to fabric and the sector requires huge capital investments and needs to be improved in a big way.  As a rough estimate the handlooms consume about 70% of the raw silk, while power looms consume the remaining 30%.  In order to develop this sector, a package of schemes is formulated and the package consists of following components.

C.  Silk Wet Processing Sector:

Under this sector, silk yarn and fabric will be processed for dyeing/ finishing. In order to develop this sector, the scheme “Support for setting up of Common Facility Centre for yarn dyeing and fabric processing” is formulated.

IX. Component-wise objectives / description:

A.  Silk Reeling and Spinning Sector:

1. Popularisation of New Slow-Speed Certified Multiend Reeling Machines (New   component):

The CSTRI has developed a new modernized reeling device called Multiend reeling machine, which is an improvement over the Cottage Basin. On this reeling device, warp quality yarn can be produced by using bivoltine cocoons or good quality cross breed cocoons. To facilitate production of bigger lots of high quality raw silk to meet the requirements of the power loom industry, it is proposed to encourage establishment of comparatively large sized units, each of 18 Basins capacity (20-ends per basin) Multiend machine, which is equivalent to 36-basins of 10-ends. This is a new component to support for setting up of Slow-Speed Multiend reeling technology package with denier detector. The total project cost for 18-Basins (360 ends) slow speed Multiend package works out to around Rs.104.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.40.00 lakhs. The total subsidy is Rs.30.00 lakhs, which is 29% of the project cost. The physical target, unit cost and sharing pattern are indicated below.

2. Support for establishment of Certified Multiend Reeling Machines:

The CSTRI has developed a Multiend reeling machinery package for production of international grade raw silk from multi-bivoltine and bivoltine cocoons available in the country. A scheme to assist the existing reelers and also new entrepreneurs to set up the Multiend reeling machinery package was implemented during the IX and X Plans. While the response from the reelers / entrepreneurs for setting up of these machines was very good during the IX Plan, the response was poor during the X Plan due to very high cost of beneficiaries. However, it is observed that the Multiend reeling units in the Southern States are equipped to reel gradable quality raw silk. Hence, considering the importance of the machinery in the quality aspect and also the good response received during the IX Plan, it is proposed to continue the component with modifications. The component envisages support for setting up of only 10-Basins and 20-Basins units. The total project cost for a 10-Basin Multiend package works out to around Rs.27.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.10.00 lakhs. The total subsidy is Rs.7.50 lakhs, which is 28% of the project cost in general States and Rs.9.00 lakhs (33%) in special status States.  Similarly, for 20-Basin package, the project cost is around Rs.50.00 lakhs, of which the equipment cost is Rs.17.00 lakhs. The total subsidy is Rs.12.75 lakhs, which is 26% of the project cost in general States and Rs.15.30 lakhs (31%) in special status States.  The physical target, unit cost and sharing pattern are indicated below.

There will be two categories of equipments in the multiend package, i.e. compulsory equipments and optional equipments. The beneficiary should agree to procure the compulsory equipments from manufacturers approved by the Central silk Board and there will be an option to have the equipments listed under the optional equipments. In case, the beneficiary is not willing to procure any of the optional equipments, the cost of such equipments will be reduced from the total package cost. The list of equipments under the component is given in Annex – II.

3. Establishment of Automatic / Semi-automatic Reeling Units :

The Chinese Automatic Reeling Machine (ARM) with a minimum of 400-ends capacity for production of around 34 MTs of raw silk per annum working on a two-shift basis, consumes approximately 218 MTs of Bivoltine / CSR hybrid cocoons per annum. This is the latest technology and machinery in cocoon processing and raw silk reeling etc. for production of 3A-4A grade raw silk. To promote use of this machine, the scheme was implemented during the X Plan on pilot basis as per the approval of EFC / CCEA.  In view of the thrust for Bivoltine cocoon production in the country and due to the demand for gradable raw silk yarn in the domestic as well as overseas markets, it is proposed to continue the component with modifications. The component envisages support for establishment of ARM in selected clusters to produce international quality raw silk in bulk quantity so that the demand of the domestic power loom and export sector is met. The total project cost for ARM package works out to around Rs.2.50 crores, of which the equipments cost is Rs.1.00 crore. The total subsidy is Rs.75.00 lakhs, which is 30% of the project cost.  The physical target, unit cost and sharing pattern are indicated below.

4. Support for establishment of Improved Cottage Basin Reeling Units:

The reeling devices available in most of the silk clusters are primitive and outdated resulting very poor quality of raw silk. The reeling takes place in extremely unhygienic conditions creating environmental pollutions and health hazards. The Cottage basin system of reeling is an improved technology over Charka and provides better quality silk compared to Charka. But, due to non-available of required equipments / machineries in pre-reeling operations and non-availability required gadgets, production of raw silk has not been possible. Since a sizeable quantity of raw silk being produced on Cottage basin, CSTRI/ CSB has modified the Cottage basin reeling technology for achieving better quality silk and improving working conditions. To assist setting up of this new Cottage basin package, the scheme was implemented under X Plan and proposed to continue. The reelers will be able to realize better prices for the raw silk produced. The total project cost for Cottage Basin unit works out to around Rs.11.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.2.50 lakhs. The total subsidy is Rs.1.88 lakhs which is 17% of the project cost in general States and Rs.2.25 lakhs (20%) in special status States.

5. Support for existing Charka Reeling Units to dissuade child labour (Motorised   Charkas):

Charka reeling device is a crude contrivance for producing silk with minimum mechanization and practically no gadgets for quality control. Generally in Charka sector, inferior quality cocoons are used to produce inferior quality silk which has specified end uses, mainly for heavy sorts. In these units, child labour is engaged as turners for the production of silk. Motorizing these Charkas can help in discouraging child labour, since the turning of the Charka will be electrically operated.  In order to discourage child labour and improve the working conditions of Charka units, this component envisages support for converting the existing Charka units to motor-operated units instead of hand operation. The support is for 4 ends Motorised Charka with required accessories per unit.  This component was approved by EFC / CCEA for implementation during X Plan period and proposed to continue during the XI Plan period.

6. Support for setting up of Certified Dupion Silk Reeling Units:

In the process of silk reeling, the cocoons are sorted out (defective cocoons) and these cocoons can be more remuneratively utilized for producing Dupion raw silk. The CSTRI has evolved a technology i.e., Motorized Dupion Silk reeling machine and technology for production of international grade Dupion silk, by using sorted out defective cocoons (i.e., double, flimsy, Uzi affected, urinated, thin-end and melted cocoons). The technology also discourages the use of child labour, provides better working condition and enhances the returns from the by-product. The component aims at replacing the current Dupion Charkas. This component was approved by EFC / CCEA under the X Plan and initiated in the field and proposed to continue under XI Plan. The total project cost for Dupion reeling package works out to around Rs.10.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.2.00 lakhs. The total subsidy is Rs.1.50 lakhs which is 15% of the project cost in general States and Rs.1.80 lakhs (18%) in special status States.

7. Support for Hot Air Driers- Electrical / Multifuel / Ushnakoti for Reeling Units:

In Northern and North-Eastern States, the sericulture is practiced as a seasonal activity. During the favourable seasons, cocoons are harvested and these harvested cocoons are to be dried & stored for a longer period. In most of the non-traditional States proper cocoon drying facility is not available and most of the reelers are practicing sun drying / steam stifling, which is not advisable as it deteriorates the quality of the cocoons and the cocoons are prone to fungus attack. To overcome these problems, use of Ushnakoti / Hot Air Dryers are supported under X Plan, which would ensure twin advantages of better quality and better working conditions. The component is proposed to continue during XI Plan with modifications. This component encourages reelers to establish hot air drying and applicable for both mulberry and vanya sectors.

(a) Hot Air Dryer: 

The Hot Air Dryer is electrically operated, which consists of a chamber for cocoons, heating element, air ventilation apparatus and air circulation facility. The heat energy used for cocoons drying is supplied by steam, electricity or flue gas. Under Indian conditions, the reeling filature are small and quantity of cocoons to be dried is comparatively less. It is

therefore proposed to promote Hot Air Dryer of 50 & 100 Kg capacity depending upon the beneficiary requirement.

(b) Ushnakoti:

In rural areas due to non-availability of continuous power supply, use of Hot Air Dryers is not practicable. Keeping this in view, the Central Silk Board’s research institutions have developed a cottage hot air drying chamber called Ushnakoti, which is capable of drying cocoons economically without use of electric power. Ushnakoti is a mud brick structure on solid foundation with corrugated asbestos roofing.  The built in multifuel oven with the Ushnakoti is capable of burning fire wood, agro-wastes such as paddy husk, groundnut husk, wood chips, dry leaves, mulberry twigs, etc., thereby achieving a temperature of 100oC inside the chamber.

8. Assistance for twisting units:

This is a new component. The reelers usually market the raw silk. The raw silk gets twisted and then reaches the weavers. The objective of this component is to enhance value addition at the Multi-end reeling units, by adding a twisting unit. It is proposed to assist the existing and also new Multi-end units through the establishment of twisting unit so that they can supply consistently good quality twisted silk to the weaving sector. It is proposed to set up these units with 400 spindles with supporting winding and doubling machines.

The total project cost for 400-spindle twisting unit works out to around Rs.20.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.6.00 lakhs. The total subsidy is Rs.4.50 lakhs which is 23% of the project cost in general States and Rs.4.80 lakhs (24%) in special status States.

9. Support for establishment of Pupae Oil Extraction production and Bye-product utilization Units:

The CSTRI has evolved machinery package to render effective utilization of pupae for oil extraction and silk waste to increase the profitability of the reeling units and to remove pollution in the reeling units. For every 100 kg of green cocoons, approximately 20 kg of dry pupae is generated and by proper utilization the pupae would enhance the income to the reelers and also take care of its disposal. It is proposed to assist setting up of Pupae Oil Extraction and Bye-product utilization units under this scheme. This component was approved for implementation during X Plan period by EFC / CCEA and proposed to continue during the XI Plan period. The total project cost for establishment of Pupae Oil Extraction production and Bye-product utilization unit works out to around Rs.70.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.14.00 lakhs. The total subsidy is Rs.10.50 lakhs which is 15% of the project cost. The physical target, unit cost and sharing pattern are indicated below.

10. Incentive for production of bivoltine silk:

The objective of the component is to encourage the production of bivoltine silk by the private and co-operative reeling units. The component was implemented during the X Plan and now proposed to continue with modifications. This envisages payment of an incentive of Rs.100 per kg of bivoltine silk reeled on Multiend / Automatic reeling units in the States of  Karnataka, Tamil Nadu  and Andhra Pradesh  and Multiend / Automatic / Cottage basin reeling units in all the other States. The incentive amount will be shared by CSB and State in the ratio of 50:50 (general States) / 90:10 (NE and special status States) in respect of the bivoltine silk reeled on Automatic /  Multiend / Cottage basin units during the XI Plan period.

The concerned department in the States shall implement the component and claim CSB’s share alongwith a list of beneficiaries on a quarterly basis. The CSB’s share will be released to States and the States shall disburse the eligible incentive amount (both State & CSB share) to the reeling units. The disbursement of the eligible incentive amount shall be confirmed to CSB by furnishing an Utilisation Certificate, to facilitate considering further claims. Those States which are unable to implement the component due to budgetary problem or for any other reason, such States or concerned CSB units may recommend / forward the claims received from the reeling units alongwith a certificate indicating the quantity of Bivoltine silk reeled by the units, to CSB facilitating to release its share @ Rs.50.00 per kg in general States and @ Rs.90.00 per kg in NE & special status States, directly to the reeling units.

A provision of Rs.30.00 crores is proposed for XI Plan, of which CSB share is Rs. 22.50 crores and Rs.7.50 crores is States’ share.

11.   Quality linked price support system for Cocoons and Raw Silk for State Govts. / Co-operatives / NGOs / SHGs:  

Marketing support to the farmers and reelers for disposing their produce conveniently at the remunerative prices is one of the important areas identified for focusing / strengthening since an organized marketing system does not exist in most of the non-traditional States. Even in the traditional States, where Cocoon Markets / Silk Exchanges are set up, a system of grading of cocoons / raw silk before auction and quality linked pricing is not operative. Such system is essential for qualitative productivity so that the farmers / reelers are ensured of the remunerative prices for their produces. In order to establish an organized marketing system, for facilitating the farmers / reelers for disposing their produce on quality linked pricing system, a Scheme “Quality linked price support system for Cocoon and Raw Silk” was offered to all the States for implementation during the X Plan period. The scheme also envisaged creation of Revolving Fund (RF) facilitating States to extend marketing support to farmers / reelers. Under this scheme, most of the States have created RF, which is being utilized for purchase of cocoons from the farmers, while the system adopted by the States of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh i.e., a fixed amount of incentive per kg of quality silk produced on Multiend machine, is more effective on quality upgradation. Therefore, the component is now proposed to continue with modifications and envisages support for the purposes indicated below:

Ø      Strengthening of the existing Cocoon Markets / Silk Exchanges with all necessary infrastructure like providing various equipments, expansion etc. This can be both for Bivoltine and CB Markets.

 

Ø      Establishment of Cocoon Markets in the area / cluster where cocoon marketing facilities are not available. It is proposed to support creating the required infrastructure (excluding land) / equipments depending upon the market arrivals and number of farmers it can cater to.

 

Ø      Procurement of equipments required for testing and grading of cocoons / yarn to support quality linked pricing. Procurement of equipments required for the Cocoon Markets / Silk Exchanges will also be supported.

 

Ø      Creation of non-erodable Revolving Fund (RF) for purchasing cocoons / raw silk at a minimum price fixed on quality basis. Depending upon the changing market situation, the States in consultation with CSB have to fix a minimum price on quality basis and such quality should be confirmed by testing before auction in the Cocoon Markets / Silk Exchanges.  In case, the graded cocoons / raw silk is not fetching a minimum price so fixed, the States can procure such cocoons / raw silk and the same can be disposed later, for which the RF can be utilized. The States, which have already created RF under X Plan scheme and proposed to enhance the FR under the XI Plan Scheme, shall justify the proposal indicating the status of the existing RF (created under the X Plan Scheme), achievement etc. 

 

Ø      It is also proposed to develop IT applications in Post Cocoon sector, especially in quality linked price support system / marketing aspects.

The component envisages financial support to the extent of 75% of the total project cost (indicative cost of Rs.60.00 lakhs), limited to a maximum of Rs.45.00 lakhs being CSB’s share for general States. For NE and special status States, CSB’s financial support will be 90% of the project cost limited to a maximum of Rs.54.00 lakhs. However, the above project cost is flexible depending upon the necessity / feasibility of the component proposed to be implemented by the States and ranging from Rs.20.00 lakhs to Rs.60.00 lakhs, of which CSB’s support will be limited to 75% for general States and 90% for special status States. It is proposed to extend support to the interested State Govts. / Departments or the State identified agencies like NGOs, Societies and SHGs for establishment of an organized marketing system with suitable infrastructure and equipments. The States shall send a detailed proposal, specifying the purposes indicated above and modus operandi of the component.

12. Establishment of Cocoon Banks / Market support to Vanya Sector:

Sericulture in the non traditional and some of the Northern States is not as developed as in traditional states in terms of silk production, productivity and number of crops per year. Majority of the non-traditional sericulture States have two commercial crops per year. This situation compels the reeling units / reelers of the above states to procure raw material and store them for atleast six months, to be used during the off season. This involves not only a huge capital but also requires enough storage space to stock the raw material. In order to help the reelers / reeling units of the above States and make available the raw material throughout the year, it is proposed to support establishment of Cocoon Banks during the XI Plan period. It is proposed to extend support to the interested State Govts. / Departments or the State identified agencies like NGOs, Societies and SHGs for establishment of Cocoon Banks with suitable infrastructure and equipments for cocoon grading, drying and storage.

The Unit cost is Rs.1.00 crore (50,00 lakhs for building, fixtures, furniture, 25.00 lakhs towards revolving capital & 25.00 lakhs for equipments), of which, CSB’s share is 50% of the building construction (90% in special status States) and 100% of equipment costs and revolving fund. The balance 50% of the building construction will have to be borne by the States besides providing the required land for construction of the building. The Central share would be released in three instalments on completion of stages as indicated below:

§    1st instalment after approval of the project proposal – 50% of the building cost limited to Rs.25.00 lakhs (90%, limited to Rs.45.00 lakhs in special status States).

§    2nd instalment after completion of the building – 100% of the equipment cost limited to Rs.25.00 lakhs.

§    3rd instalment after installation of the package equipments – 100% of Revolving Capital limited to Rs.25.00 lakhs.

The Cocoon Banks, established by the respective State Governments with financial support (75% of the unit cost of Rs.1.00 crore) from the GOI, shall function as Cocoon drying and storage banks that can be operated only by the authorized members as and when required. The interested Reelers can open an account with the Cocoon Bank located in their vicinity by paying a modest sum of Rs.500.00 and become authorized members.

The authorized members (Reelers) are required to assess their total raw material requirement for a given year and to make a security deposit of 20% of the estimated value of raw material requirement to the Cocoon Bank. The balance 80% shall be contributed by the Cocoon Banks. The purchased cocoon lots would be dried at the Bank premises under the technical supervision of the Bank and stored in cages, individually allotted to each of the authorized members. The bank can charge a nominal drying charge of Rs.2.00 per kg of cocoon. Like Bank lockers, the cages would have a set of two keys for its operation, one each with the concerned reeler / authorized member and the Bank Manager.

Subsequently, based on the raw material requirement, the reeler can draw a particular quantity of the stored cocoon from his / her account / cage, by paying the cost of dried cocoons (calculated based on the purchase price of green cocoon and standard reduction due to stifling + a nominal service charges). The security deposit would be adjusted at the end of each year (12 calendar months). A reeler can operate his / her cocoon account not more than three times a month. Fresh security deposit has to be made every year to maintain his / her account validity.

It is proposed to set up 10 Cocoon Banks during XI Plan at a total cost of Rs.10.00 crores  (CSB’s share - Rs.7.50 crores & State’s share - Rs.2.50 crores) in ten non-traditional States (one each) on priority and need basis.

13.  Providing services of Master Reelers / Weavers / Dyers to reeling / weaving / dyeing units through States Governments / NGOs / Co-op. Societies / SHGs:

One of the major constraints to sustain silk industry in non-traditional states was the absence of efficient reeling / weaving / dyeing skills. To over come this problems, under X Plan, the Master Reelers /Weavers / Dyers were deputed to existing silk reeling / weaving / dyeing units identified by the States to train the workers engaged in the units and to develop confidence among reelers / weavers / dyers to manage and run the units satisfactorily. Considering the good feedback, demand and request from the States, it is proposed to continue the component with modifications during XI Plan. The deputation period of two years reduced to one year. Each Master Reeler / Weaver / Dyer will be paid an honorarium of Rs.3,600.00, house rent allowance of Rs.1,000.00 and medical allowance of Rs.150.00, amounting to Rs.4,750.00 per month. This apart, the expenses towards travel from the place of residence to the place of deployment and lump-sum of Rs.15,000.00 after completion of the tenure will also be paid. The total expenditure will be around Rs.75,000.00 per person per year, which shall be met by CSB. Each Master Reeler / Weaver / Dyer will be entitled for one day leave for every month, which may be either taken separately or together during the deployment period apart from weekly-off and in case of incompletion of one year period, the leave and lump-sum will be worked out proportionately. The reeling / weaving / dyeing units will have to submit the applications to CSB / CSTRI for arranging to provide the services of Master/Skilled Reelers / Weavers / Dyers and CSTRI will be provided with funds. A total provision of Rs.75.00 lakhs is proposed as CSB share to cover 100 Master Reelers / Weavers / Dyers in XI Plan.

14. Support for Vanya Reeling / Spinning Sector:

In order to support Vanya reeling / spinning activity to improve the productivity and reduce drudgery, CSTRI has developed pedal-cum-motorized reeling and twisting machines for Tasar and Muga and low cost motorized spinning wheel for Eri. Replacement of traditional devices with these improved reeling and spinning machines results in reducing drudgery, increasing the efficiency and dispels the painful and hazardous method of thigh / hand reeling, besides improving the productivity and quality. These improved devices have been introduced in the field during IX & X Plan and received good response from the users.  In order to create additional facility and consolidate the efforts undertaken during the IX & X Plan, it is proposed to continue to encourage the use of efficient and modern reeling and spinning devices for overall improvement in quality and productivity of reeled and spun Vanya silks.

15. Support for the establishment of Spun / Spinning Mills:

Eri silk production in the country has grown steadily in NE region and also in the State of Andhra Pradesh over the past decades. The existing technology and hand-spinning device are outdated and cannot supply quality spun yarn of different counts in large quantities to meet the needs of silk weavers in the region. The establishment of Eri Spun Silk Mills would enable the industry to properly utilize the Eri cocoons (shells) produced in the country. It also helps in improving the quality of Eri spun yarn, facilitates production of diversified value added products as per the demand of the national & international markets, besides generating employment opportunities to the tribals. Hence, there was a need to effectively utilize the farmers’ produce through the establishment of Eri Spun Silk Mills in the North-East Region and Andhra Pradesh. Therefore, the Scheme was implemented during the X Plan on a pilot basis and assisted to set up two units, one each in Assam and Andhra Pradesh, with a production capacity of 60 kg of Eri Spun yarn per shift (120 kg per day). In order to take care of the growing Eri cocoon production and also to make available high quality Eri yarns for creating a range of diversified products with export potential, it is proposed to continue the component with little modifications. It is proposed to create facility for spun silk yarn and noil yarn manufacture by using second hand and reconditioned machineries & equipments. The total project cost for establishment of a Spun Silk Mill works out to around Rs.2.85 crores, of which the equipments cost is Rs.1.70 crore. The total subsidy is Rs.127.50 lakhs, which is 45% of the project cost in general States and Rs.153.00 lakhs (54%) in special status States.

B. Silk Weaving Sector:

1. Support for establishing shuttle-less looms:

This is a new component. In the changing scenario, it is very important to meet the requirements of the garment sector. The garment sector requires fabrics in long lengths, wide widths and which are flawless. Only the shuttle-less looms can meet all these demands of the garment sector. Therefore the component is proposed, which would help in the production of high quality silk fabrics to meet the requirements of the garment sector. It is proposed to set up these units with Indigenous Rapier looms (8 Nos.) and a Warping Machine. In addition, electronic jacquards (3 nos each of 240 hooks capacity) are envisaged @ Rs.1.00 lakh per unit for handlooms which are at present operated with punched cards. The introduction of electronic jacquards provides the following advantages.

a)     Cost of each punched card used in conventional jacquards is only Rs.2.50 and for intricate designs, even up to Rs.1.00 lakh is incurred. Elimination of punched card by the electronic iacquards brings down the cost of designing & avoids deforestation.

b)     Duration to change design is reduced substantially.

c)     It is proposed to install electronic jacquards (3 nos. each of 240 hooks capacity) for 500 handlooms @ Rs.1.00 lakh per unit during XI Plan period.

The total project cost for establishment of a unit works out to around Rs.1.21 crore, of which the equipments cost is Rs.0.50 crore. The total subsidy is Rs.37.50 lakhs, which is 31% of the project cost. The physical target, unit cost and sharing pattern are indicated below.

2. Support for Handloom Sector for loom upgradation:

(i) Certified Handlooms:

 Most of the weavers in various silk clusters continue to use the traditional pit-looms or old / hackneyed frame-looms without any modern attachments either to improve the productivity or quality of the fabric. CSTRI has developed an improved handloom wherein special features have been incorporated so as to give the handloom weavers a distinct advantage to produce quality fabrics with better productivity. It is proposed to provide support to replace the age-old traditional looms. The looms suitable for the particular region, be it pit loom, frame loom or improved loom would be covered under the component.

(ii) Loom upgradation through Jacquards & other equipments:

Support would be provided to existing pit or frame or improved handlooms to install either one or more of the following accessories.

  1. Jacquard
  2. Dobby
  3. Parallel beat-up
  4. Positive take-up and let-off
  5. Pirn winding
  6. One ball to beam warping machine for ten handlooms
  7. Sectional warping machine

C. Silk Wet Processing Sector:

1. Support for setting up of Common Facility Centre (CFC) for yarn dyeing and fabric processing :

(i) CFC for Yarn Dyeing:

Though silk is produced only in a few States, almost all the States in the country have atleast one weaving cluster. The dyeing requirements of these clusters are met mainly by the small time traditional dyers, who dye small quantities of silk employing low level of technology & equipments. This results in poor quality dyeing especially poor colour fastness. CSB studied the requirement of these dyeing clusters across the country and came out with measures to address the problems. Based on these, during the IX Plan a Common Facility Centre Scheme for yarn dyeing was introduced with Arm Dyeing Machine, Water Softening Plant, Boiler and Effluent Treatment Plant and 16 such units were established during the plan. These units were well received. The scheme was offered only to the Co-operatives. Many of the Master Weavers and small time dyers also require this yarn dyeing facility to deliver quality dyed yarn. A smaller capacity dyeing units have to be suggested to address the different requirement of this sector. These types of CFCs were introduced under the EFC during the X plan and the response was overwhelming.

The total project cost for 25 kgs Yarn dyeing unit works out to around Rs.19.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.3.00 lakhs. The subsidy is Rs.2.25 lakhs, which is 25% of the project cost in general States and Rs.2.70 lakhs (30%) in special status States. Similarly, the total project cost for 50 kgs Yarn dyeing unit works out to around Rs.15.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.5.00 lakhs. The subsidy is Rs.3.75 lakhs, which is 25% of the project cost in general States and Rs.4.50 lakhs (30%) in special status States.  The total project cost for 50 kgs Arm dyeing unit works out to around Rs.22.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.12.00 lakhs. The subsidy is Rs.9.00 lakhs, which is 41% of the project cost in general States and Rs.10.80 lakhs (49%) in special status States. The physical target, unit cost and sharing pattern for XI Plan are indicated below.

 The list of equipments under the component is given in Annex –XV.

(ii) CFC for Fabric processing:

Most of the silk fabrics produced on powerlooms are piece dyed and hence require fabric processing and finishing facility. As these facilities are capital intensive and use large volume of material, the fabric processing is carried out in vessels in primitive manner resulting in poor quality. The finishing work is generally outsourced. Hence, creation of such fabric processing and finishing facility will certainly help the processors in places like Serampore, Varanasi and Bangalore where there is huge requirement for fabric processing. The total project cost for Fabric processing unit works out to around Rs.66.00 lakhs, of which the equipments cost is Rs.25.00 lakhs. The subsidy is Rs.18.75 lakhs, which is 28% of the project cost in general States and Rs.22.50 lakhs (34%) in special status States.
