Export Promotion

The Government of India has launched the Trade Infrastructure for Export Scheme (TIES) scheme w.e.f FY 2017 -18 to assist Central and State Government agencies for creation of appropriate infrastructure for growth of exports from the States. The Scheme provides financial assistance in the form of grant-in-aid to Central/State Government agencies for setting up or for up-gradation of export infrastructure as per the guidelines of the scheme. The scheme can be availed by the States through their implementing agencies, for infrastructure projects with significant export linkages like Border Haats, Land customs stations, quality testing and certification labs, cold chains, trade promotion centres, export warehousing and packaging, SEZs and ports/airports cargo terminuses. The Scheme guidelines are available at http://commerce.gov.in.

Under the TIES scheme, financial assistance for a total of 44 export infrastructure projects has been approved during FY 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20 &  2020-21 (as on 12th  March, 2021). The state-wise details of funds released during each of the last three years and the current year under the Scheme of DoC are given at Annexure.

Further, promotion of Districts as Export Hubs is being coordinated by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) in collaboration with Department of Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT).  This initiative tries to target export promotion, manufacturing and employment generation by making the States and the Districts oriented towards export growth.

Improving logistics constraints is an ongoing process.  Logistics Division,   Department of Commerce is coordinating with the state governments and line   ministries to resolve logistics issues and streamline trade within and outside the State.
