The focus of this paper is to identify different barriers of technology adaptation in clusters of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) of Glass Products in West Bengal through productivity based efficiency analysis and policy intervention to address it. In spite of globalization and economic liberalization the manufacturing sector of Indian MSMEs is still using the traditional technology (almost 85% - 90%) comparing to efficient one as per different MSME census. The present MSME policies and studies are not directly emphasizing intra-cluster dynamics of a cluster related to technology adaptation. The bench marking method used here will address productivity based intra-cluster dynamics to identify the barriers. West Bengal is one of the major players of India in terms of number of MSMEs and employment generation in this sector and we have considered the cluster of Glass Products as a model. Our empirical model shows how to identify the different parameters for non-adapting the technologies of this cluster. The same model can be used for different other manufacturing cluster of MSMEs.
