SCHEME FOR CENTRAL ASSITANCE TO STATE GOVTs./UNION TERRITORIES FOR SETTING UP OF ENFORCEMENT MACHINERY. 
Part I :General Features of the scheme.

1. Objectives :-

1.1 The scheme will be implemented by State Govts./Union Territories through the State Director incharge of handlooms and is aimed at establishing Enforcement Machinery in the States to ensure that the powerloom and mill sector do not violate the provisions of the Handlooms (Reservation of Articles for Production) Act, 1985. 

1.2 The scheme is intended to encourage and assist the State Govts./ UTs to set up State level Enforcement Machinery. In States where an Enforcement Machinery for the purpose already exists, the Central Assistance will be extended to strengthen the existing infrastructure for effective enforcement of the provisions of the said Act. 

1.3 This scheme is in addition to the implementation of the Handlooms (Reservation of Articles for Production) Act, 1985 by Central Govt. agencies namely the Development Commissioner for Handlooms and the Textile Commissioner. 

2. Salient features :-

Tenure and extent of assistance. 

2.1 The scheme to set up office/s of Enforcement Machinery in the State will be fully funded by the Centre during the IX Five Year Plan. From the first year of the X Five Year Plan, Central Assistance to States/UTs, will be reduced in a tapering manner at the rate of 20% per annum. 

2.2 Subject to conditions specified above, the Central Assistance will be to meet Recurring and Non-recurring expenditure for the purpose on the basis indicated in Part-II below. 

Part-II : State Enforcement Machinery

3. Setting up of Offices :- 

3.1 States/UTs having 5,000 or more powerlooms shall be eligible for assistance under this scheme. 

3.2 Each State/UT will have a headquarters office of the Enforcement Machinery under the direct control of State Director Incharge of Handlooms. 

3.3 Subsidiary office/s at the pockets of powerloom concentration in the State may be set up under the control of Headquarters Office. For this purpose, each pocket of powerloom concentration should cover at least 20,000 powerlooms. 

3.4 Thus, besides one Headquarters Office, each State having at least 25,000 powerlooms will be sanctioned one subsidiary Office for each unit of 20,000 or more powerlooms. Ordinarily one such subsidiary centre will be considered for each additional 20,000 powerlooms. However, where more than 20,000 powerlooms are concentrated in one location/city/ area, only one subsidiary centre will be allowed for each such concentration area/city. 

4. Staff Pattern : 

4.1 The staffing pattern for Headquarter Office and subsidiary Offices would be as per Annexure-A. 

4.2 The costs indicated at Annexure-A are suggestive and do not necessarily prescribe the pay scales of incumbent in various posts. Such pay scales would depend on the prevailing pay scales of the State in similar jobs and similar responsibilities. Within the overall cost norms for a centre there will be flexibility of individual cost components. 

4.3 Where a subsidiary centre is sanctioned for a location having 40,000 or more looms, a subsidiary centre may have staff component higher than that given at Annexure-A provided that the total cost for such a centre does not exceed twice the cost norms given for one subsidiary centre. 

4.4 Recurring expenditure on account of hiring building on rent, maintenance and running of vehicle and contingency expenditure will also constitute the Central Assistance subject to ceiling specified. 

4.5 Non-recurring expenditure for acquiring jeep/vehicle for these offices may also be allowed subject to ceiling specified in Annexure - A. 

4.6 Sates which have been sanctioned non-recurring expenditure during the VII & VIII Plan will not be ordinarily sanctioned this amount again. 

4.7 Besides the norms on the number of Powerlooms, release and sanction of funds will also depend on performance namely implementation of the Act adjudged based on the following parameters :- 

a) Number of inspections made; 

b) Number of looms inspected; 

c) Number of samples seized; 

d) Number of powerlooms seized; 

e) Number of samples tested; 

f) Number of samples in which violation detected; 

g) Value of products seized (in Rupees); 

h) Number of prosecutions lodged. 

i) Number of cases leading to imposition of penalty; 

j) Number of cases ending in confiscation ; 

k) Value of confiscated goods; 

l) Value realised from disposal of confiscated articles; 

Part - III : Procedure for availing the Central Assistance.

5. Submission of proposals :-

5.1 The State Govts./UTs may submit their proposals for establishment of Enforcement Machinery in their States /UTs identifying the places where field offices are to be situated with the suggestions for staff requirement and anticipated expenditure following the guidelines mentioned above alongwith their justification for the same. The proposals may be sent to Development Commissioner for Handlooms, New Delhi for approval and release of funds. 

5.2 While submitting their proposals for setting up of Enforcement Machinery, the State Govts./UTs would be required to furnish the commitment to bear the financial liability on tapering basis at the rate of 20% per annum during the X Five Year Plan. 

5.3 Claim for grant should be submitted in the proforma given at Annexure-B alongwith the Progress Report, which is at Annexure-C on quarterly basis. The releases in subsequent quarters will be based on the criteria enumerated at para 4 above and also actual expenditure. 

6. Reports & Returns :-

6.1 State Govts. /UTs availing of the Central Assistance under this scheme will submit utilisation certificate duly vetted by the audit at the end of each financial year alongwith requirement of funds for the subsequent year, on the basis of which funds will be released by the Central Government.
