Related Scheme Lean Manufacturing Competitiveness for MSMEs
Description The objective of the scheme is to enhance the manufacturing competitiveness of MSMEs through the application of various Lean Manufacturing (LM) techniques.
Nature of assistance Financial assistance is provided for implementation of lean manufacturing techniques, primarily the cost of lean manufacturing consultant (80% by GoI and 20% by beneficiaries). Lean manufacturing consultants (LMCs) will raise bills for services provided to Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). SPV will, in turn, pay the first installment of 20% to the LMC and will obtain reimbursement from the NMIU. Thereafter, Ministry of MSME will transfer funds to the NMIU. SPV payments to LMC will be on a milestone basis in 5 tranches, each of 20% of the amount fixed.
Who can apply? The scheme is open to all manufacturing MSEs. The units are required to form MC, ideally of 10 units each with a minimum 6, by signing among themselves a Memorandum of Understanding an MoU to participate in the scheme.
How to apply? A group of SMEs can apply for the scheme. Either a recognised SPV can apply on its own, or a mini cluster can be formed by a group of 10 or more such units.
The SPV can apply to the National Monitoring and Implementing Unit (National Productivity Council for the Scheme) in the given format.
