In 4 clusters, the Union Govt. has given final approval to 4 DPRs namely Hitech Metal Cluster, Mohali, Oil Expeller & Parts Cluster, Ludhiana, Garments Cluster, Ludhiana and Foundry Cluster, Kapurthala for which Central Govt. would provide a grant of 70% to 90% of the project cost of maximum Rs. 15 crores, Arora added.

The Minister further informed that Hi-tech Metal Cluster, Mohali and Oil Expeller & Parts Cluster, Ludhiana have already been completed while the work on remaining ones is in full swing.

Three more clusters including Auto Tech Cluster, Ludhiana and Sewing Machine Cluster, Ludhiana and Cutting Tools Cluster at Patiala have got In-principle approval from the Govt. and initial spade work of capacity building in other clusters is going on, said the Minister.
