Under the scheme, 36 projects of CFCs in various clusters (including 07 in Karnataka) have been developed all over country during the last three years (i.e. financial year 2018-19 to 2020-21). The State/UT-wise details are enclosed.

The turnover, production and exports of the cluster depend upon various factors like aggregate domestic and global demand, seasonality besides various factors, which may not be within the control of the units in the cluster.
