India Textiles

Ministry of Textiles have taken a number of new initiatives for achieving the main objectives of making the development participative and inclusive, “sabka saath, sabka vikaas”, giving particular attention to the under privileged regions and disadvantaged segments of the society. Based on the “make-in-India” initiative, the organized textile industry has been assisted with specific stress on ‘skill, scale, speed’ and ‘zero-defect, zero-effect’ for scaling up employment, production and export.The administrative mechanism and procedures are being revised based on “minimum government – maximum governance” for improving ease of doing business. Some of the major initiatives taken in the past months in the textile sector include promotion of apparel and garments in the north eastern region, safeguarding the interests of cotton growers, revival of the National Textile Corporation, promotion of handlooms and handicrafts, linking fashion with textiles, promotion of carpet development, skill development, safeguarding the interests of jute growers and jute workers, empowerment of women through sericulture, promotion of technical textiles, etc. We seek public participation in taking the initiatives further. Please join the group.
