Clean Technology Industries under RGUMY

This is to assist them in the establishment and management of new enterprise, in dealing with various procedural and legal hurdles and in completion of various formalities required for setting up and running of the enterprise. Another objective of the Scheme is to provide information, support, guidance and assistance to first generation entrepreneurs as well as other existing entrepreneurs through an ‘Udyami Helpline’ (a Call Centre for MSMEs having toll free number 1800-180-6763), to guide them regarding various promotional schemes of the Government, procedural formalities required for setting up and running of the enterprise and help them in accessing Bank credit etc. Prospective entrepreneurs wanting to set up clean technology industries may seek handholding assistance of Udyami Mitras under RGUMY. However, no specific proposal to assist entrepreneurs wanting to set up clean technology industries under RGUMY is before the Government.

Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) conducts various training programmes for agro-based rural industries, including Entrepreneurship Development Programmes for setting up micro-enterprises in the non-farm sector under the Prime Minister’s Employment Programme (PMEGP). These include training programmes for processing of organic farm produce.
