Production Linked Incentive Scheme (Pli) for Textiles (Mistry and Shah Global Solutions Private Limited )

Overview of the Scheme

Taking steps forward towards the vision of an ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’, the Government led by Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has approved the PLI Scheme for Textiles for MMF Apparel, MMF Fabrics, and 10 segments/ products of Technical Textiles with a budgetary outlay of Rs. 10,683 crore. PLI for Textiles along with RoSCTL, RoDTEP, and other measures of Government in the sector e.g. providing raw material at competitive prices, skill development, etc will herald a new age in textiles manufacturing.

PLI scheme for Textiles will promote the production of high-value MMF fabrics, Garments, and Technical Textiles in the country. The incentive structure has been so formulated that the industry will be encouraged to invest in fresh capacities in these segments. This will give a major push to the growing high-value MMF segment which will complement the efforts of the cotton and other natural fiber-based textiles industry in generating new opportunities for employment and trade, resultantly helping India regain its historical dominant status in global textiles trade.

Incentives under the scheme will be available for 5 years period i.e. during FY 2025-26 to FY 2029-30 on incremental turnover achieved during FY 2024-25 to FY 2028-29 with a budgetary outlay of Rs. 10,683crore.
