 Due to insufficient investment and lack of awareness of both the quality standards and access to modern technologies, a large percentage of Micro & Small Enterprises (MSEs) continue with outdated technology and plant & machinery. With increasing competition due to liberalisation of the economy, the survival and growth of the MSMEs are critically dependent on their modernisation and technological up gradation. Up gradation of both the process of manufacture and corresponding plant and machinery is necessary for the small enterprises to reduce the cost of production and remain price competitive at a time when cheaper products are easily available in the global market.


With the objective of assisting MSMEs in technology up gradation, Ministry of MSME operates a Scheme for technology up gradation of MSEs, called the Credit Linked Capital Subsidy Scheme (CLCSS). The Scheme aims at facilitating technology up gradation by providing upfront capital subsidy to MSEs, including tiny, khadi, village and coir industrial units, on institutional finance (credit) availed of by them for modernisation of their production equipment (plant and machinery) and techniques.

 The Scheme

CLCSS provides 15 percent upfront capital subsidy (with effect from 29th September 2005, and 12% prior to that date) to MSEs on institutional finance availed of by them for induction of well established and improved technologies in the specified sub-sectors/products approved under the Scheme.
Technology up gradation: Definition:
Induction of state-of-the- art or near state-of-the- art technology that would be a significant step up from the present technology level to a substantially higher one involving improved productivity, (and/or) improvement in quality of products, (and/or) improved environmental conditions would constitute technology up gradation.
