SFURTI yojana is based on resolve of AtmaNirbhar Bharat, says Nitin Gadkari

MSME Minister Nitin Gadkari has said that SFURTI yojana is based on the resolve of AtmaNirbhar Bharat to create jobs and contribute to the country’s development. Inaugurating a two-day workshop for implementation of Scheme of Fund for Upgradation and Regeneration of Traditional Industries, SFURTI clusters today, Mr Gadkari said, so far, 50 SFURTI clusters have been opened. Under the SFURTI Scheme, financial support is provided for setting up of traditional industries clusters like Khadi, Coir and Village industries clusters. He said, there should be at least five thousand such clusters. The Minister also stressed on the need to digitise the SFURTY yojana. He also emphasized on the need to make the system transparent, time-bound, result oriented and corruption free.

The Minister said there should be a shop of Khadi gram udyog and Village industry in every district to increase the turnover of khadigram udyog and village industry from 88 thousand crore rupees to 5 lakh crore rupees. He said with this we would be able to create jobs. Mr Gadkari said that the clusters which can provide employment should be allowed and we are not concerned about who they are, their caste, religion, party or category. He said that there is a need to increase MSME’s contribution from 30 per cent to 40 percent in GDP growth and MSME’s contribution from 48 per cent to 60 percent towards India’s exports. Mr Gadkari further said, we need to create five crore jobs in five years.
