Cluster Development Scheme
The cluster development scheme has been implemented since 2003-04 for the development of a group of artisans from different sectors in different parts of the state. The revised cluster development scheme is currently being implemented as per the resolution number ICO/102010/868729/Kh, Dated:20/08/2020 of the Industry and Mines Department of the State Government. The District Industry Center of the concerned district is functioning as the implementing agency of this scheme. A group of 25 to 100 artisans of handicraft, handloom or cottage industry engaged in production activities of the same type or different types of crafts in the same village or geographically close villages should be considered as clusters. Industrial co-operative society registered under co-operative law, public trust registered under trust act / N.G.O. or various boards / corporations / institutions of the state or central government which are active for the development of artisans can avail the benefits of this scheme, which will act as the nodal agency of the cluster. These nodal agencies will have to submit a proposal to the General Manager of the concerned District Industry Center.
For the development of the cluster maximum assistance of Rs.79.60 lakh can be availed for different components from the State Government under this scheme.
