Technology and Quality Upgradation (TEQUP) (DC-MSME)

The scheme advocates the use of energy efficient technologies (EETs) in manufacturing units so as to reduce the cost of production and adopt clean development mechanism. The primary objective of this activity is to handhold the MSME clusters in adopting energy efficient processes. The awareness programme will normally be of one day duration with the participation of at least 30 MSMEs.


The first objective of the scheme is to sensitize and encourage the manufacturing MSME sector in India to the use of Energy Efficient Technologies and Manufacturing Processes so as to reduce cost of production and emissions of GHGs.

The second objective of the scheme is to create awareness and encourage the MSMEs to acquire Product Certification/ Licenses from National/ International Bodies.
