Frequently Asked Questions
Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS), which was introduced on 01.04.1999 has helped overcome technological obsolescence and created economies of scale in the Textile Sector. The decentralized powerloom sector has also derived substantial benefits under TUFS by installing shuttleless looms and automatic looms. However, some of the economically weaker powerloom units in India are still in their original shape and desire to go for In-situ modernization for their existing plain power looms.
Such requirement of Insitu upgradation by the economically weaker Powerloom units cannot be met under TUFS as
(i) The minimum benchmark is Automatic Looms
(ii) such low-end plain power-loom owners do not find it feasible to straightaway upgrade to Auto Looms.
Therefore Government decided to provide financial assistance to economically weaker plain power looms units for the upgradation of their existing ordinary looms with additional features like weft stop motion, warp stop motion, semi-positive let-off motion, efficient breaking device, anticrack device, replacement of metallic parts by self lubricative nylon parts, dobby, jacquard etc.
The prime objective of the scheme is to provide financial assistance to economically weaker low-end powerloom units where the benefits of the TUFS have not been reached, to improve the quality and productivity of the fabric being produced by upgrading existing plain looms with certain additional attachments, and to enable them to face competition in domestic and international markets.
