15 Page 15 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 The Sub group suggests a strategy based on short & long term measures 2011/122012/132013/142014/15 Short term measures (responsibility: GOI / TEI) 1 Long term measures (responsibility: GOI / TEI) 2 Encourage FDI on top priority through joint ventures and 100% foreign ownership Establish Technology Upgradation Fund for TEI Discourage import of second hand textile machinery Address fiscal policy constraints and anomalies Sustain FDI in Hi-tech segments Strengthening TEI infrastructure through clusters development and SEZs R& D – Institutional capacity building and private sector incentives HRD through vocational training institutes Export promotion

16 Page 16 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 1: Encourage FDI for capacity expansion and technology upgradation (1 of 2) Ginning SectorRequired know how Indian OEMs are well positioned, since they have know how regarding all 3 ginning technologies Spinning Acquire know how related to: High end compact spinning High speed OE High speed winders High speed woolen / worsted frames Air Jet technology Synthetics Acquire know how related to: Extruders Spinning beams Godets Winders Testing Ways to acquire know how / brands Evaluate a take over of the Continental brand Explore opportunities with Lummus Invest in internal R&D Evaluate to work with western Universities (Aachen, Dresden, etc) Winders: Attract investments of Savio, Muratec and Schlafhorst into India as an alternative to China Attract major EU OEMs (Oerlikon (Barmag, Neumag) to produce / assemble in India (as alternative to China) Contact medium sized EU OEMs (Swisstex, SML, Sahm, Giudici) in order to explore J&Vs or attract them to assemble / produce in India Jute Acquire know how related to: Opening, Cleaning, Blending Spinning Indian OEMs should proactively contact the major EU OEMs (Schlumberger, Gaudino, Bonino, Finlane, etc) in order to explore JV / M&A opportunities Attract EU OEMs (Schlumberger, Trützschler, Gaudino, Bonino, Finlane) to produce / assemble in India Acquire know how related to: Filament yarn testing (on / offline) Explore M&A or JV activities (e.g. with Sensoptics) on the filament sector Build up and / or strengthen dedicated R&D cells at universities Source: Gherzi Report

17 Page 17 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 1: Encourage FDI for capacity expansion and technology upgradation (2 of 2) SectorArea of intervention Weaving Acquire know how related to: Shuttleless looms (rapier >400 rpm; air jet > 800 rpm; water jet > 800 rpm) Knitting Processing Acquire know how related to: Environmentally sustainable processing High speed wide width processing Special purpose processing and finishing machinery (e.g. plasma- finishing) Acquire know how related to: High speed circular knitting machinery (Microprocessors) Warp knitting Industrial Stitching Acquire know how related to: Hi-tech industrial stitching/sewing machinery (lockstitch, overlock, coverstitch, bar tacking, pocketset, button holes, etc) Strategy to attract FDI in know how / brands Attract FDI (Picanol, ITEMA) regarding air jet, rapier (and ev. Projectile) technology to be produced competitively in India Indian OEMs should initiate JV / M&A discussions with Panter, SMIT & ITEMA Build up and / or strengthen dedicated R&D cells at universities Indian players should evaluate M&A and/or JVs with EU OEMs (mainly Italian & German OEMs) Explore opportunities with Ningbo Yuren (who is expanding fast ) about manufacturing in India Gherzi foresees also here several opportunities for Indian OEMs to tie up with or take over EU producers (mainly Italian – there are more than 50 SMEs) Attract FDI (e.g. the remaining EU OEMs: Dürrkop, Pfaff; Necchi)

18 Page 18 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 1: Encourage FDI for capacity expansion and technology upgradation Investment incentive TodayProposed In order to attract foreign investment to close the gap in the Indian textile machinery value chain for the state of the art manufacture of: Rotor spinning machines Automatic winders Shuttleless looms A preferential tariff, closer to the highest import duty rate of 10% should be considered during at least for first 5 years of production to potential foreign investors, since the market for the above machines is relatively small. The producers of above machines should also enjoy 0% tariff on accessories, parts and components used as inputs So far, no local textile machinery enjoys a preferential tariff even for a certain period until their production is stabilized India offers generous tariff protection to pioneer industries such as the automotive industry Even China has been gradually raising tariff on hi- tech items of textile machinery (e.g.,automatic winders) as local capacity increases

19 Page 19 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 2: Address fiscal policy constraints and anomalies Fiscal policy issues TodayProposedTodayProposed Imbalance in customs duty between complete machines at 7.5% (5% on 178 specified items of machinery) and 7.5% for accessories, parts and components (tariff 8448) Shuttleless looms are imported under a concessional customs duty of 5%. There is an infant industry producing shuttleless looms, compact ring spinning frames and automatic cone winding machines for which dedicated components not made in India are imported with a duty of 5% Excise duty ranges between 10% (General items) and 5% (Specific list items) Local suppliers of textile machineries under EPCG scheme face cumbersome procedure for refund of terminal excise duty unlike in EOU scheme enjoying duty exemption 200% weighted deduction on R & D expenditure is allowed only to companies Harmonise customs duty on all types of textile machinery including parts, components and accessories at a uniform rate of 7.5% Reduce customs duty from 5% to nil on 15 imported dedicated parts, components and accessories needed for the production of shuttleless looms, compact ring spinning machines and cone winding machines, this would help to make the local industry more competitive Reduce excise duty from 10% to 8% to improve the competitiveness of local industry Supply of local textile machinery under EPCG and EOU status to be treated at par 200% weighted deduction on R & D expenditure incurred by all companies and partnership / proprietary units

20 Page 20 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 3: Discourage import of second hand textile machinery Second hand machinery TodayProposed Large scale imports of 2 nd hand machinery stood at Rs 700 crores in 2009 / 2010 The focus of imports has been the weaving sector Second hand looms are eligible for benefit under TUFS. Advocates of the scheme justify this measure to replace obsolete powerlooms by highly competitively priced second hand shuttleless looms with proven technology The textile machinery industry regards this as a retrograde step which perpetuates the technological obsolescence of the weaving sector in India As per TUFS policy import of second hand looms should satisfy an age criteria whereby the looms should be of maximum 10 years vintage. A significant number of second hand imported looms are with old, low speed technology having a weft insertion rate below 750 meters per minutes. It should be noted that China does not allow the import of second hand machines The import of second hand machines should be prohibited or restricted by stipulating a specified minimum residual life of 10 years and further, subject to the condition that the second hand machinery should not be older than 5 years Threshold criteria relating to technical parameters, such as a minimum machine speed may also be imposed This should be certified by a designated authority based in India In any case no incentives, such as TUFS should be applicable to second hand machinery Channelize imports via 2 designated ports Impose actual user condition on importers

21 Page 21 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 4: Establish Technology Upgradation Fund Second hand machinery TodayProposed There is no special fund for the textile machinery industry per se. However, the industry only indirectly benefits from the TUFS available to the textile industry. TUFS encourages new investment in the textile industry by providing 5% interest reimbursement and a 20% capital subsidy (credit linked capital subsidy – CLCS) An outlay of Rs. 11,315 crores was earmarked for the TUFS under the 11th Five Year Plan A provision for a Plan outlay of Rs. 750 was made for TEI under the 11th Five Year Plan however no details of utilization were available Its recommended to launch a TUF dedicated to the Indian textile machinery industry. The fund should have an interest reimbursement outlay of Rs 250 crores for XIIth Plan and based on similar principles as TUFS and cover the following major areas: Expansion and modernization of existing textile machinery manufacturing companies Acquisition of technical knowhow from overseas Industry segments regarded as weak or non existing (rotors spinning, automatic winding, weaving, processing, knitting and industrial sewing equipment) should be eligible for 10% capital subsidy in addition to interest reimbursement

22 Page 22 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 5: Strengthen TEI infrastructure through cluster development and SEZ Cluster development TodayProposed There are five important clusters where textile engineering units are located – Ahmedabad, Coimbatore, Kolkata, Panipat & Surat 80% of the TEI units are MSMEs There is little institutional support and capacity building is largely at the firm level through private initiative Strengthen existing TEI clusters in five important cities by establishment of five Common Facility Centers (CFC) CFC shall be set up on PPP mode and provide the following services R&D Product development Design facilities Testing facilities Skill development Enterprise management development Encourage establishment of new TEI units under SEZ especially for FDI promotion

23 Page 23 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 6: R& D – Institutional capacity building and private sector incentives R & D promotion TodayProposed There is low level of R & D in the industry particularly in non spinning areas Limited proprietary technology Resource constraints as 80% of TEI units are MSMEs As majority of TEI caters to the decentralised sector such as weaving and processing with low end applications there is little incentive for R & D Following measures are proposed to foster R & D culture through specific initiatives Focus of R & D shall be at institutional and private firm level, selected textile engineering institutes (IITs and NITs) An apex R & D promotion cell should be set up at TMMA and comprise key stake holders from institutions, private and public sector Capital subsidy up to 50% for viable R & D projects Incentive for innovative design and product development Institutional collaboration between Indian and foreign institutes Inter disciplinary collaboration between TEI and other institutions such as DRDO and automotive industry

24 Page 24 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 7: HRD through vocational training institutes HRD & skill development TodayProposed TMMA collaborated with IIT Bombay for setting up an R&D center for the Indian textile machinery. Spinning and other equipment was provided by TMMA initially. However the initiative has not been effective due to fund constraints and lukewarm government support There is lack of skill development specially in MSMEs Inability of the sector to attract and retain talent Undertake capacity building programmes at textile engineering institutes and vocational institutes Training the trainer Scholarships for students from rural areas and small towns Review of existing curriculum for certificate, diploma and graduate courses Exchange programmes with foreign textile technology institutes such as Aachen University Germany Explore partnership with Swiss Indian chamber of commerce under Swiss government vocational training programme already initiated in other sectors Encourage regular interaction between the industry and academia

25 Page 25 Working group TEI Strategy 2.3 Action 8: Export promotion Export promotion for Indian TEI TodayProposed Exports represent about 10% of the total TEI production at Rs 650 crores Main products – Spinning, weaving preparations, processing & accessories Main markets – Bangladesh, Malaysia, Far East, Middle East, Africa & Latin America TEI exports enjoy following incentives under generic export promotion scheme DEPB Focus market Exports are monitored by EEPC Encourage project exports through EXIM bank facilities particularly to Africa Undertake market visits and buyer seller meets in less developed textile countries to promote export of textile machinery and spares Easy availability of MDA through EEPC Creation of a new EPC for textile machinery exports to be set up by TMMA through Ministry of Commerce Special assistance for participation in international textile machinery exhibitions

38 Page 38 Working group TEI Comparative analysis of India Vs China : Grants and interest subsidy China Funds for supporting technological innovation by SMEs o Science and technology oriented SMEs are eligible for financial appropriation or loan interest discount. In the projects of financial appropriations, the SMEs of science and technology nature receive firstly seventy per cent of the total assisting amount approved to be granted to the enterprises. In the projects of interest discount, the SMEs of science and technology nature receive firstly eighty per cent of the assisting fund for interest discount in accordance with the interest settlement document provided by the enterprises. The rest of the grant or assisting fund for interest discount shall be paid after the projects being completed as well as checked and accepted. Each project shall receive no more than RMB 1 million and in particular cases no more than RMB 2 million o For such projects, the government makes an annual budgetary allocation 2 India TodayProposed There is no special fund for the textile machinery industry per se. However,the industry only indirectly benefits from the TUFS available to the textile industry. TUFS encourages new investment in the textile industry by providing 5% interest reimbursement and a 20% capital subsidy (credit linked capital subsidy – CLCS) An outlay of Rs. 11,315 crores was earmarked for the TUFS under the 11 th Five Year Plan A provision for a Plan outlay of Rs. 750 was made for TEI under the 11 th Five Year Plan however no details of utilization were available Its recommended to launch a Technology Upgradation Fund dedicated to the Indian textile machinery industry.

39 Page 39 Working group TEI Comparative analysis of India Vs China : Other support measures China Brand building – Several state and local governments started a scheme called Famous Export Brand, Chinas Renowned Label and China World Top Brand which were given to promote indigenous brands and were given in the form of grants, preferential funding for R&D projects contingent upon export performance. However China was compelled to withdraw such type of incentive when challenged by the US at WTO Interest rate subvention- This incentive is typically offered by the state and local governments to subsidize loan interest for upgrading technologies and equipment across industries. A project could receive subsidy equal to about one-third of the interest amount in a year Besides above a number of local levies such as land lease fees, VAT and administrative charges may be negotiated with the local industrial park administration As per China Textile Machinery Association(CTMA),the state governments launch and fund special projects for up-gradation of technological standards in the selected textile machinery enterprises in their region. Cross functional projects teams are set up and consist of experts from textile engineering institutes and machine manufacturers and user. They alluded to a project adopted by Zhejiang State government aimed at increasing the life span of rings by reduction of friction during spinning 3 India TodayProposed TMMA collaborated with IIT Bombay for setting up an R&D center for the Indian textile machinery.
