Under SITP, 66 textile parks have been sanctioned which are at different stages of implementation.  Employment of 79,000 persons has been generated.  Evaluation studies of the parks have highlighted benefits of clusterisation to the industry.  7 projects have been sanctioned under IPDS only during 2015-16.  Execution of these projects is at early stages.  Under TUFS, employment of about 16.78 lakh persons has been generated                                   involving 12051 cases/units during the period. The success of the scheme in upgrading technology by leveraging investments led to the launch of ATUFS with effect from 13.01.2016 to further support technology upgradation in value added segments.
