Sub: Application under IDLS Scheme (XII Plan) for machinery procured before 01.01.2016 – Deadline for receipt at CLE 23.03.2017
As members are kindly aware, the Integrated Development of Leather Sector (IDLS) Scheme is being implemented as part of the Indian Leather Development Programme (ILDP) towards modernization, capacity expansion and technology upgradation in the Leather and Leather Products industry. The XII Five Year Plan Period is coming to an end by March 2017, and the process for continuing the ILDP for the next three year period i.e. 2017-2020 has already been initiated by the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP), Govt of India.
In this background, the Council would like to inform that the IDLS scheme is expected to be continued as part of the IDLP for the next 3 years and the machinery procured on or after 01.01.2016 is expected to be eligible for investment grant under ILDS scheme in the next ILDP.
In view of the above, this is to inform that applications under IDLS Scheme for machinery procured prior to 01.01.2016 will be received in the CLE offices only upto 23.03.2017. The CLE will forward the same to the PIU-FDDI or PIU-CLRI, as the case may be, and the receipt of application at these 2 PIUs will be reckoned as the official Date of Receipt of the Application and the PIUs will take further action on such applications based on the decisions of the DIPP/Steering Committee.
Once the ILDP for the next 3 years is approved by Government of India, the receipt of applications will be resumed at CLE offices as per the new guidelines of IDLS scheme. Please wait for CLE Circular in this regard.
The above are for your information.
With warm regards,
Ramesh Kumar, IAS
