TUFS was a credit-linked subsidy scheme intended for modernisation and technology upgradation of the Indian textile industry. The Amended TUFS with an allocation of ₹5,151 crore has been implemented with a focus on facilitating and providing support to micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

Seventy one textile manufacturers, 10 industry associations, 13 state government agencies and four sectoral organisations have been brought on board under the SAMARTH scheme with an allocated target of 3.45 lakh beneficiaries, according to an official press release.
