subsidy is allowed by government new construction of minimum 4 chambers. moreover estimated cost considered for subsidy hardly comes to 20% compare to govt claiming 40-55%. it is even lower for smaller plants. this leads to no scheme friendly to only large players & young enterprises are deprived of. govt. should think of it.
