SFURTI Scheme has been revamped in the XII plan and 71 clusters with an outlay of Rs. 149.44 crore are proposed to be developed in the Ist phase. It is envisaged under the revamped SFURTI to have 3 types of clusters as follows:
|Type of clusters||Numbers||Outlay (Rs. In crore)||Artisans to be covered|
|Heritage Clusters||2||16.00||1000-2500 artisans per cluster(500-1200 artisans for NER,Hill, LWE affected area)|
|Major Clusters||10||30.00||500-1000 artisans per cluster(250-500 artisans for NER,Hill, LWE affected area)|

*Rs. 14.94 crore also kept for thematic interventions, administrative, scheme management, monitoring and evaluation.
The objectives of the scheme under MSE-CDP are to support the sustainability and growth of MSEs by addressing common issues such as improvement of technology, skills and quality, market access, access to capital, etc., build capacity of MSEs for common supportive action, create/upgrade infrastructural facilities in the new/existing industrial areas/ clusters of MSEs and to set up common facility centres (for testing, training centre, raw material depot, effluent treatment, complementing production processes, etc.).
Under the Scheme of Fund for regeneration of Traditional Industries (SFURTI) the objectives are to organize the traditional industries and artisans into clusters to make them competitive and provide support for their long term sustainability and economy of scale by imparting necessary skills, improvement in marketing infrastructure, by making provision for common facilities centre and providing improved tools and equipments for artisans etc.
There are no criteria fixed for selection of location for the said purpose as the schemes are demand driven and depend upon the availability of clusters.
