Dear Member,

We would like to inform you that the Ministry of Textiles has issued Revised Resolution of “Amended Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (ATUFS)” vide Resolution dated 2nd August, 2018.

As you are aware, the Ministry of Textiles had notified the Amended TUFS (ATUFS) dated 13th January, 1.2016. In accordance to the said Resolution, the Ministry had laid down certain Guidelines of ATUFS i.e. financial and operational parameters and implementation mechanism for ATUFS during its implementation period from 13.01.2016 to 31.03.2022.

The amended scheme would give a boost to “Make in India” and “Zero effect and Zero defect” in manufacturing in the textiles sector. It will also give a boost to employment generation and exports in the textile sector in a big way.

Further, this scheme would facilitate augmenting of investment, productivity, quality, employment, exports along with import substitution in the textile industry. It will also indirectly promote investment in textile machinery (having benchmarked technology) manufacturing.

The ATUFS benefit is available for the benchmarked machinery under the Scheme for various Textile Sectors including Weaving, Weaving Preparatory and knitting, Processing of fibres, yarns, fabrics, garments and made-ups, Technical textiles, Garmenting/made-up manufacturing, Handloom Sector etc.

The major changes in the Revised Resolution are as follows –

  1. Allowed RRTUFS pending cases for UID under ATUFS.
  2. Purchase date of the machinery is the date of full & final payment made or date of commercial invoice whichever is later.
  3. Allowed the purchase of machinery from other manufacturers other than those given in the indicative list for JIT request.
  4. Constituted a Technical Committee for enlistment of machinery manufacturers.
  5. Addressed the issue of writing machine serial number on any document viz. Commercial invoice/Bill of Lading/Airway Bill/Bill of Entry etc.
  6. Permitted to avail benefits of state government schemes in addition to ATUFS.

The Revised Resolution of “Amended Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (ATUFS)” is attached herewith.

Members please make a note of the above and do the needful accordingly.

Thanking You,
