New Guidelines of MSE-CDP

Background

  1. The Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME), Government of India (GoI) has adopted the Cluster Development approach as a key strategy for enhancing the productivity and competitiveness as well as capacity building of Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) and their collectives in the country. A cluster is a group of enterprises located within an identifiable and as far as practicable, contiguous area or a value chain that goes beyond a geographical area and producing same/similar products/complementary products/services, which can be linked together by common physical infrastructure facilities that help address their common challenges. The essential characteristics of enterprises in a cluster are (a) Similarity or complementarity in the methods of production, quality control & testing, energy consumption, pollution control, etc., (b) Similar level of technology & marketing strategies/practices, (c) Similar channels for communication among the members of the cluster, (d) Common market & skill needs and/or (e) Common challenges & opportunities that the cluster faces.
  2. In October 2007, the erstwhile Cluster Development scheme „Small Industries Cluster Development Programme (SICDP)‟ was renamed as „Micro and Small Enterprises Cluster Development Programme (MSE-CDP)‟. It was also decided that the „Integrated Infrastructural Development (IID)‟ Scheme shall be subsumed in MSE-CDP for providing developed sites for new enterprises and upgradation of existing industrial infrastructure. A comprehensive MSE-CDP is being administered by the Office of Development Commissioner (MSME), Ministry of MSME since then.
  3. These guidelines of MSE-CDP are issued in supersession of the previous guidelines and encompasses, inter-alia, the procedure and funding pattern for following admissible components:
    1. Common Facility Centers (CFCs): This component would cover creation of tangible “assets” as Common Facility Centers (CFCs) like Common Production/ Processing Centre (for balancing/correcting/improving production line that cannot be undertaken by individual units), Design Centres, Testing Facilities, Training Centre, R&D Centres, Effluent Treatment Plant, Marketing Display/Selling Centre, Common Logistics Centre, Common Raw Material Bank / Sales Depot, Plug & Play facility, facilities that can support marketing systems, collective Geographical Indications (GI), development of common production & product standards, development of new product designs, improved systems for better hygiene & working conditions for workers, systems for higher overall productivity & capacity utilization of the cluster, systems for skill upgradation of the cluster, as well as supporting diversification activities of enterprises and startups in the cluster, etc. Backward/Forward linkages for value addition in bi-product/waste of cluster units would also be admissible for enhancing productivity/profitability of individual units subject to condition that CFC itself would not sell/market products/bi-products directly.
    2. Infrastructure Development: This component would cover development of land, provision of water supply, drainage, power distribution, non-conventional sources of energy for common captive use, construction of roads, common facilities such as first aid centre, canteen, any other need based infrastructural facilities in new industrial (multi-product) areas/estates or existing Industrial Areas/Estates/Clusters. Development of Flatted Factory Complexes can also be undertaken under this component.
    3. Marketing Hubs/Exhibition Centres by Associations: The GoI assistance to Associations for establishing Marketing Hubs/Exhibition Centres at central places for display and sale of products of Micro and Small Enterprises.
    4. Thematic Interventions: This component would provide GoI financial assistance for implementation of Thematic Interventions in approved/completed CFCs for following activities:
      1. Training Programmes.
      2. Exposure Visits.
      3. Strengthening the Business Development Service (BDS) provision through a panel of service providers.
      4. Any other activity related to creating business eco-system in cluster mode.
    5. Support to State Innovative Cluster Development Programme: A few State Governments such as Haryana, Maharashtra, Bihar, etc. have initiated State funded Cluster Development Programme to support soft and hard interventions in clusters with limited funding support.

In order to strengthen this activity, this component would provide co-funding of the CFC projects of State Cluster Development Programme on matching share basis.

Objectives of the Scheme

    1. To support the sustainability and growth of MSEs by addressing common issues such as improvement of technology, skills & quality, market access, etc.
    2. To build capacity of MSEs for common supportive action through formation of self help groups, consortia, upgradation of associations, etc.
    3. To create/upgrade infrastructural facilities in the new/existing Industrial Areas/ Clusters of MSEs.
    4. To set up Common Facility Centres (for testing, training, raw material depot, effluent treatment, complementing production processes, etc.).
    5. Promotion of green & sustainable manufacturing technology for the clusters so as to enable units switch to sustainable and green production processes and products.
  1. Strategy and Approach: Given the diverse nature of the MSEs in terms of both geographical spread and sectoral composition, the MSE-CDP scheme aims at addressing needs of the enterprises, in identified clusters and geographical areas. This will enable achieving the economies of scale in terms of deployment of resources as well as focusing on the specific needs of similar enterprises. The capacity building of enterprises, formation of Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) to set up Common Facility Centres (CFCs) are integral part of the scheme and would enable the MSEs to leverage their resources and also to have better access to public resources, linkages to market so as to enhance their competitiveness. For sustained capacity building and hand holding, SPV may collaborate with reputed Technical Institutions, Engineering Colleges and National Research Institutes from conceptualization till implementation/operation phase. A Detailed Project Report (DPR) is required to be prepared for a technically feasible and economically viable Project for availing assistance under the scheme. The Government of India will not give any grant for preparation of DPR. However, a sum equivalent to 4% of Project Cost not exceeding Rs.50.00 lakh (fifty lakh) will be considered as a contribution by the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) / State Government, as the case may be, towards this purpose, including consultancy charge to Technical Institution etc from conceptualization stage to operational handholding support under the Project, with the approval of State Level Steering Committee (SLSC).

Identification of Potential Clusters:

      1. Identification of potential clusters in consultation with MSME-DIs and other stakeholders would be undertaken by Programme Management Unit (PMU), once they are on board. This list can be expanded based on inputs received from various stakeholders including enterprises, industry associations, State Government

departments, institutions/agencies engaged in promotion and development of MSMEs.

      1. Diagnostic Study of identified clusters would be undertaken by PMU to identify issues/challenges/opportunities.
      2. Presentation on findings of Diagnostic Study by PMU would be made before Techno Economic Appraisal Committee (TEAC).
      3. PMU would prepare Preliminary Project Report (PPR) of clusters approved by TEAC based on Diagnostic Study findings.
      4. Potential cluster details including findings of Diagnostic Study and PPR would be uploaded on MSE-CDP portal.
      5. Micro & Small Enterprise (MSE) Clusters from the identified list can submit proposal for availing assistance under scheme by submitting Concept Note / Detailed Project Report (DPR) by suitably modifying the PPR available on MSE-CDP portal as per their specific requirements.
      6. In case, the cluster is not in the identified list, on the request of cluster members or any other stakeholders, the process of Diagnostic Study, approval of TEAC and preparation of PPR as mentioned above would be followed and the cluster would be added in admissible list of identified clusters to be covered under MSE-CDP, if approved by TEAC.

Detailed Project Report (DPR):

      1. A Detailed Project Report (DPR) is required to be prepared for a technically feasible and economically viable Project. The indicative format for preparation of DPR is at Annexure-1. The DPR should include first of all a cluster level value chain analysis reflecting the key problems associated with the functioning of the value chain of the cluster and how the proposed project intends to bring in the desired change in overall functioning of the cluster. The DPR must also include financial analysis like Internal Rate of Return, Break-even Point, Debt-service Coverage Ratio, Sensitivity Analysis, etc., using basic templates such as Projected Profit & Loss Account, Projected Balance Sheet, etc. clearly reflecting the need for viability gap funding by the public sources linking up with the conceptual rationale behind the same.
      2. DPR, after its recommendation by TEAC, needs to be appraised by a Central/ State Government Financial Institution/Bank/SIDBI/independent Technical Consultancy Organization/Agency/Institution empanelled by Office of DC, MSME (as per standard appraisal format), before the project is considered for approval.
    1. Common Facility Centres (CFCs): This component would cover creation of tangible “assets” as Common Facility Centers (CFCs) like Common Production/Processing Centre (for balancing/correcting/improving production line that cannot be undertaken by individual units), Design Centres, Testing Facilities, Training Centre, R&D Centres, Effluent Treatment Plant, Marketing Display/Selling Centre, Common Logistics Centre, Common Raw Material Bank/Sales Depot, Plug & Play facility, facilities that can support marketing systems, collective GI, development of common production & product standards, development of new product designs, improved systems for better hygiene & working conditions for workers, systems for higher overall productivity & capacity utilization of the cluster, systems for skill upgradation of the cluster, as well as supporting diversification activities of enterprises and startups in the cluster, etc. Backward/Forward linkages for value addition in bi-product/waste of cluster units would also be admissible for enhancing productivity/profitability of individual units subject to condition that CFC itself would not sell/market products/bi- products directly.
      1. The GoI grant will be restricted to 70% of the cost of Project of maximum Rs.20.00 crore. GoI grant will be 90% for CFCs in NE & Hill States, Island territories, Aspirational Districts/LWE affected Districts, Clusters with more than 50% (a) micro/ village or (b) women owned or (c) SC/ST units. The cost of Project includes cost of Land (subject to maximum of 25% of Project Cost), building, pre-operative expenses, preliminary expenses, machinery & equipment, miscellaneous fixed assets, support infrastructure such as water supply, electricity and margin money for working capital.
      2. The entire cost of land and building for CFC shall be met by SPV/State Government concerned. In case existing land and building is provided by stakeholders, the cost of land and building will be decided on the basis of valuation report prepared by an approved agency of Central/State Govt. Departments/FIs/Public Sector Banks. Cost of land and building may be taken towards contribution for the Project. CFC can be set up in leased premises. However, the lease should be legally tenable and for a fairly long duration (say 15 years). In case CFC is established on leased land the Lease Period should be more than 30 years.
      3. Adaptive reuse of the unutilized/partially utilized buildings and assets under Public & Private Sector would be encouraged under the scheme.
      4. It is necessary to form an SPV prior to setting up of and running the proposed CFC. An SPV should be a Section 8 company (as per Companies Act 2013). The SPV should have a character of inclusiveness, wherein, provision for enrolling new members to enable prospective entrepreneurs in the cluster to utilise the facility should be provided. In addition to the contributing members of the SPV, the organizers should obtain written commitments from „users‟ of the proposed facilities so that its benefits can be further enlarged. Bylaws of SPV should have provisions for one Central Government and one State Govt. official as members of the SPV.
      5. There should be a minimum of 20 MSE cluster units serving as members of the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). There is no ceiling on the maximum number of members. In special cases, where considerations of investments, technology or small size of the cluster warrant lesser number of units, a minimum of 10 MSE units may be considered for the SPV.
      6. In order to instill transparency, inclusiveness and to maximize the benefits of facilities being created through Common Facility Centres, the SPVs of above CFCs, shall communicate (through appropriate means – email, letter etc) with all the beneficiaries of the cluster, clearly intimating all details of facilities being created, expected services and benefits to the members of the clusters (SPV and non SPV) and seek their commitments and interest / intention to utilize the facilities proposed to be created. The communication should also clearly mention that SPV membership is open ended and any unit in the cluster beneficiary can become SPV member as and when they desire, however the facilities of CFC can be availed by all the units of the cluster (SPV and non SPV members). Preferably, they may also organize workshop of beneficiaries of the cluster in order to bring more clarity and awareness amongst them.
      7. The contribution of the cluster beneficiaries should be as high as possible but not less than 10 per cent of the total cost of CFC. State Government contribution will be considered as gap funding. However, proposals with higher State Government funding would be given preference.

Large mother manufacturing firms (whether in the public or private sector), Central or State Government Autonomous Bodies such as MSME Technology Centres, other major buyers of the MSE cluster products, commercial machinery suppliers, raw material suppliers and Business Development Service (BDS) providers will be eligible to contribute up to 49 per cent of SPV contribution, provided management of SPV remains clearly with the intended beneficiary SPV. In case, contribution is made by MSME Institutions, they may represent Government of India in the management/ Governing body. The SPV may also raise loans from banks to take care of any shortfall, expansion, etc. on the condition that the plant and machinery in the CFC purchased with Government assistance will not be hypothecated and the first right thereto will rest with the Government.
      9. Contribution by the SPV and matching share by State Government should be made upfront. Necessary infrastructure like land, building, water and power supply, etc. must be in place or substantial progress should have been made in this regard before GoI assistance is released. Where bank finance is involved, written commitment of the bank concerned to release proportionate funds will also be necessary before release of GoI assistance.
      10. The CFC may be utilized by the SPV members and as also others in the cluster.
      11. The Project (setting up of CFC) should be completed and operational within two years from the date of approval. If Project could not be completed in two years, an extension upto a period of one year can be considered and approved by State Level Steering Committee.

The extension is, however, subject to a reduction of 10% of GoI share which is to be borne by the SPV as additional contribution, if delays are due to reasons attributable to SPV. Escalation in the cost of Project above the sanctioned amount, due to any reason, will be borne by the SPV/State Government. However, escalation in Project Cost due to variation in statuary levies on part of Government of India would be considered appropriately for the purpose of modification in means of finance/funding pattern. The Central Government shall not accept any financial liability arising out of operation of any CFC.
      12. The SPV shall be exclusively responsible for the day-to-day running of the CFC. The aim of running the CFC shall be to provide common services to the enterprises in the Cluster at affordable cost as well as to generate enough income to meet all its running expenditure, depreciation and provision for replacement/expansion of capital assets. However, any shortfall or excess of income over expenses shall be borne or kept by the SPV only.

Commercial Viability: Following financial appraisal tools will be employed for assessing commercial viability of the Project:

    1. Return on Capital Employed (ROCE): The total return generated by the project over its entire projected life will be averaged to find out the average yearly return. The simple acceptance rule for the investment is that the return (incorporating benefit of grant-in-aid assistance) is sufficiently larger than the interest on capital employed. Return in excess of 25% is desirable.
    2. Debt Service Coverage Ratio: Acceptance rule will be cumulative DSCR of 3:1 during repayment period.
    3. Break-Even (BE) Analysis: Break-even point should be below 60 per cent of the installed capacity.
    4. Sensitivity Analysis: Sensitivity analysis will be pursued for all the major financial parameters/indicators in terms of a 5-10 per cent drop in user charges or fall in capacity utilisation by 10-20 per cent.
    5. Net Present Value (NPV): Net Present Value of the Project needs to be positive and the Internal Rate of return (IRR) should be above 10 per cent.
