The State has adopted a Cluster approach for the development of the MSMEs by enabling them to achieve economies of scale. Focusing on cluster approach, initiatives under EPP 2015 created a tremendous on-ground impact. Cluster initiatives valued at INR 190 cr. under PPP mode are underway in more than 35 MSME clusters covering 16 districts in the State under the Central and State Government sponsored schemes.
The Haryana Mini Cluster Scheme, under which 25 projects are underway, has been widely applauded and has also earned appreciation from Ministry of MSME, Government of India. Haryana cluster development approach has become a nationwide case study and the Ministry of MSME urged other states to replicate Haryana approach for the development of MSMEs, thereby making Haryana a reference point for other states.
The Central Government implements MSE-CDP scheme for creating common facility centres with financial support (GoI: State: SPV - 70:10:20) for investment up to a maximum of INR 20crore for a group of at least 20 existing industrial units in a cluster. The State will provide 20% share for each cluster over and above its share of 10% whereas SPV will contribute only 10% share in place of 20%. State Government will also contribute 50% of the cost of the project exceeding INR 20 crore (up to a maximum of INR 25 crore).
The State Government has also revamped the Mini Cluster Development Scheme which now will provide 90% grant-in-aid (up to INR 5 crore per project) for setting up of common facility centre, providing a positive fillip to the MSME sector in the State. The scheme has been recognized as a best practice by GoI.
