Abstract: The study aims to analyze the role of the Federation of Industries and Associations (FIA) in the sustainable development of MSMEs in Gujarat. A sample of 20 industry associations and 179 textile MSMEs has been selected. Primary and secondary data have been collected from various sources and the data has been analyzed with the help of descriptive statistics, data development analysis, and the Delphi DEMATAL technique. The descriptive statistics indicate that the Federation of Industries and Associations have an active mechanism for the sustainable development of MSMEs in Gujarat. Most members responded that they were satisfied with the services provided by the FIA. Members who were not satisfied with the services due to insufficient information. It was recommended by the association to engage with its members and understand the issue facing them. Despite the services provided by FIA MSMEs face many challenges that hinder the efficiency of MSMEs. This study identifies the barriers and impediments to the sustainability of textile industries. The input and output model results have been identified, with the results suggesting efficient data measurement units (DMUs) such as Gujarat, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, and Karnataka were efficient DMUs and inefficient DMUs were Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, and were Rajasthan. These inefficient DMUs are unable to utilize their resources properly due to sustainability challenges. Based on the outcome acquired through DEMATEL study, six challenges namely, Lack of innovation and product development (LI), Lack of sufficient government policies (LG), Lack of CETP facilities (LC), Lack of skilled labor (LA), Low level of integration (LL) and poor quality of raw material (PQ) are to be found causal factors. Lack of CETP facilities and Low Level of Integration (LL) has a high impact on the sustainability of textile MSMEs in Gujarat.
