What are your views on recently announced package for textiles industry? Which fabric blends have high demand? What kind of government aids can boost this sector? What steps do you take to ensure sustainability?
The government has rolled out incentives which it claims would increase exports over the next few years and attract large investment of about ₹74,000 crore. A benefit to weavers whose salary is less than ₹15,000 by mandatory contribution of provident fund by employers has been announced. The policy also aims to create 30 million more jobs in the textile sector over a period of three years.
We annually produce 2 million metres of fabric. Bemberge, modal, viscose, cuprox linen, cuprox cotton and cuprox modal fabric blends are used for saris and ethnicwear. Bhagalpur, Surat, Mumbai, Erode, Trichy, Bhiwandi, and Ichalkaranji are some of the places we source fabrics.
Our clients hail from all over India. Polyester and cotton fabrics have high demand in export markets. Expert checkers and quality control management team are engaged in quality control. The government should aid the industry in such a way that export of textile products is increased, whereby the industry and government both are benefited.
Manufacturing of fabrics without any defects, proper market and financial safety are the major challenges faced in this sector. Viscose and rayon provide comfort and functionality to garments. But embroidery, digital print, shaded dyeing are trending.
In terms of research and development, we have a good team of technicians, who take care of fabric analyses and market analyses. We also have financial advisers, who take care of future forecasting, new trends and development. We take care of their incentives and other aspects of their lifestyle. Moreover, emotional attachment with the organisation inspires them to relentlessly work with the highest level of enthusiasm.
Moving towards sustainability is also a social change that entails law, planning and manufacturing for individual lifestyle. Ethical consumerism is a big challenge for sustaining and maintaining environment-friendly goods. We take all the care in staying green in our manufacturing practices.
