For incentivizing manufacturing units to get established early in PM MITRA Park, there is a Competitive Incentive Support (CIS) provision of Rs 300 crore per park. This incentive will be provided to manufacturing units up to 3% of the total sales turnover to the unit established in the park to reduce its cost and offset its disadvantages to a certain extent.
