Commerce and Industry Ministry’s green manufacturing advisory committee (GMAC) has cleared seven proposals for acquisition of clean technology and solid waste management.

These proposals were considered under the Technology Acquisition and Development Fund (TADF) Scheme.

“A total of seven proposals, under the categories of acquisition technology, clean technology in manufacturing and solid waste management, were considered and approved by the GMAC under the scheme. These efforts will foster innovation in green technology,” the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion said.

ADF was set up for acquisition of appropriate technologies including environment friendly technologies; creation of a patent pool and development of domestic manufacturing of equipment used for controlling pollution and reducing energy consumption.

Listing out its major achievements during April-July 2016, it also said said ICT consultants for Dholera Special Investment region have been appointed in May, who will design the systems and define service level agreements.

This region is being developed under the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) project.

“Mass Rapid Transit System project between Ahmedabad to Dholera is being implemented so as to provide last mile connectivity to the region. The Detailed Project Report has been finalised and approved by Gujarat,” it said.

Further, a Logistics Data Services Project is implemented by DMIC Development Corporation that will integrate information with various agencies across supply chain to provide detailed real time information in a single window.

It said during this period, the ministry has given approval to establishment of Mega Leather Cluster in Andhra Pradesh with a central government assistance of Rs 125 crore.
