Scheme for Enhancement of Competitiveness in the Indian Capital Goods Sector- Phase I

  • In order to address the skill gaps and infrastructure developmentand technology needs for the Capital Goods Sector,Phase I of the Capital Goods scheme was rolled out in November 2014 which has the total outlay of Rs 995.96 crores. Phase I of the scheme fostered partnerships between Academia and Industry for engendering technology development with Government support.
  • The outcome of the Scheme has proved the efficacy of the strategies deployed for technology and industrial infrastructure development.
  • Centre of Excellence (CoE) - 8 CoEs have been established wherein 25 new technologies in the field of machine tools, textile machinery, earth moving machinery, nano and sensor technologies have been developed at national research institutes of eminence such as Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc), Central Manufacturing Technology Institute (CMTI) etc. and a number of these technologies has been commercialized.
  • Common Engineering Facility Centres (CEFC) - 15 CEFCs including four Industry 4.0 SAMARTH centres (SMART ADVANCED MANUFACTURING AND TRANSFORMATION HUBS) and six web based Technology Innovation Platforms (TIPs) have been setup. Industry 4.0 SAMARTH centres are at Indian Institute of Sciences at Bengaluru, Centre for Industry 4.0 (C4i4) lab at Pune, Central Manufacturing Technology Institute (CMTI) at Bengaluru and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi.
  • The six Web based open manufacturing technology innovation platforms are helping in bringing all India’s technical resources and the concerned Industry on to one platform to kick start and facilitate identification of technology problems faced by Indian Industry and crowd source solutions for the same in a systematic manner so as to facilitate start-ups and angel funding of India innovations. This includes the development of the key ‘mother’ manufacturing technologies' indigenously through ‘Grand Challenges’ on the Platforms to help achieve the vision of an Aatmanirbhar Bharat and a globally competitive manufacturing sector in India. The 6 Platforms have been developed by IIT Madras, Central Manufacturing Technology Institute (CMTI), International Centre for Automotive Technology (iCAT), Automotive Research Association of India(ARAI), BHEL and HMT in association with IISc Bangalore. These platforms will focus on development of technologies for the globally competitive manufacturing in India. These platforms will facilitate industry, start-ups, domain experts/professionals, R&D institutions and academia (colleges & universities), to provide technology solutions, suggestions, expert opinions etc. on issues involving manufacturing technologies. Further, it will facilitate exchange of knowledge with respect to research & development and other technological aspects. Over 76,000 Students, Experts, Institutes, Industries and labs have already registered on these platforms so far.
  • Technology Acquisition Fund Programme (TAFP) – Following 5 technologies have been acquired from abroad under Technology Acquisition Fund Programme (TAFP)

(i).Development & Commercialization of Titanium Casting with Ceramic Shelling Technology by PTC Industries Ltd, Lucknow

(ii) Manufacturing of Heavy Duty High Reliability Electrical Specialized Power Cables by Allied Engineering Pvt. Ltd, New Delhi

(iii) Development of Turn Mill Centre by HMT Machine Tool Ltd, Bengaluru

(iv) Development of Four Guideway CNC Lathe by HMT Machine Tool Ltd, Bengaluru

(v) Cutting Edge Robotic Laser Cladding Technology by Industrial Processors & Metallizers Pvt. Ltd, Ghaziabad

  • Integrated Machine Tools Park, Tumakuru : An exclusive industrial park for machine tool industry has been developed across 530 Acres, at Tumkuru, Karnataka. So far, out of 336 acres of allottable land, 145 acres of land has been allotted to the machine tool manufacturers. The salient features of the Machine Tools Park are follows

    (i) The Park has state of art infrastructure consisting of Green Cover Area, Incubation, Test & Certification Centre & Common Engineering Facilities Centre to improve productivity and create new capacities across the supply chain.

    (ii) It is a step forward in making the machine tool sector cost effective, hi-tech machine tools, enhanced export capability and attracting more investment.

    (iii) It will encourage investment in technology upgradation, skill development and augmentation of modern manufacturing capacities for holistic growth of Industry and SMES, Startup, R & D, incubation Centre etc

    (iv) It will help to improve the Economy of the Country/State, GDP/GSDP and employment generations (directly and indirectly).

    (v) It will also help to reduce the imports of Capital Goods and improve the Forex Reserves.

  • After launching of the Capital Goods Scheme- Phase-II, The Phase-I of the Capital Goods Scheme has been merged with Phase-II of the Scheme.
