Out of 18 Technology Centres (TCs), the first 10 TCs (earlier known as Tool Rooms) provide tooling, moulds, dies, etc. to the industry. These TCs also provide training in the area of tool and die making. Today, these TCs are highly proficient in mould and die making technology.

The remaining Technology Centres, (earlier known as Technology Development Centres - serial number 11 to 18 in the above list) are product specific Centres to support MSMEs’ catering to specific sectors by rendering technical services to develop and upgrade technologies, processes and products apart from manpower development and training in the specific product groups like Foundry & Forging, Electronics, Electrical Measuring Instruments, Fragrance & Flavour, Glass, Sport Goods, and footwear designing to support these sectors.

Facilities & Services

The facilities of the Technology Centres allow for the design and manufacture of sophisticated tools, parts, components and products in conformity with international standards. The latest hardware and software available at these centres ensure professional design and 3D solid modelling. The production facilities at the Technology Centres offer an array of cutting edge production services to MSMEs including 3D printing.

In addition, these institutes provide technical services such as design of parts and components, materials testing, heat treatment, quality control, and technical consultancy related to the product & process improvement.

The Technology Centres apart from extending design, development & manufacturing support to MSMEs for complex tools, parts and components – many that serve as import substitutes, have also supported the strategic sectors such as aerospace, defence, atomic energy etc. of the country for their R&D requirements.

New Steps

Considering the role played by MSME - Technology Centres towards meeting the technological & skilled manpower need of industry specially the MSMEs, the Ministry is implementing the programme titled “Technology Centre Systems Programme (TCSP)” for expanding and upgrading the network of Technology Centres through establishing new 15 Technology Centres and upgrading the existing TCs to meet the ever growing need of MSME sector for technological up gradation and skilled manpower.

Multiple Brand and Logos in practice

Today all the TCs are operating under different brand names and logo, hence not able to take benefits of its size and combined strength despite being operating under single M/o MSME.

Benefits of Unified Brand/Logo for Technology Centre:

• This will help in TCs combining their strengths, areas of specialisation and relationship to further help and support MSME units across the country.
• A common brand will also help the TCs to engage with OEMs/PSUs and MNCs in their production planning and forging consortium of MSME units across the country to serve the same.
• Increasing acceptance by the user sector at national and international level given the common performance, objective and outreach to the sector.

The last date of submission is 16th August, 2016.


The selected entry will be awarded a prize of Rs. 30,000/-.
