“The Central Government is putting a lot of emphasis on this scheme and offering 80% subsidy to the units for implementation of the scheme,” FOSMI said in a notification.

The scheme will be presented by Dr. Goutam Sengupta, an industry veteran and empanelled consultant of National Productivity Council.

The objective of LMCS is to enhance the manufacturing competitiveness of MSMEs through the application of various Lean Manufacturing (LM) techniques. The general approach involves engagement of Lean Manufacturing Consultants (LMC) to work with selected MSME’s in the chosen clusters with financial support by the Government.

A maximum of 80% of the project cost for each cluster, under the scheme, is borne by the Government.

Manufacturing has been recognized as the main engine for growth of the economy. The MSME sector has been a significant contributor to manufacturing by accounting for nearly 40% of the total industrial production. (KNN Bureau)
