'Ministry finalising draft National Textiles Policy'

Jun '17
The textiles ministry has completed consultations with stakeholders and outreach sessions with the industry, and is currently in the process of finalising draft guidelines of the National Textiles Policy. After adding inputs from the Textiles India 2017 fair this month, the policy is likely to be put for Cabinet approval next month, a senior official said.

“We have done stakeholder consultations with all segments, with all handloom weavers, big manufacturers (on the textiles policy). We have reached out to all the segments. We are almost ready (with the draft),” Pushpa Subramanyam, additional secretary of textiles ministry, said during an interaction in Warangal, Telangana state.

Subramanyam was in the town to invite textile and apparel industry entrepreneurs to participate in Textiles India 2017, a global exhibition of textiles and related segments slated from June 30 to July 2 in Gandhinagar.

“Soon after the Textiles India 2017 is over, we will enrich the document with the more inputs from the event. In July it may go to Cabinet for approval,” she added.

The National Textiles Policy is expected to aim at achieving $300 billion textile exports by 2024-25, and thereby creating around 35 million new employment opportunities.

Speaking about the proposed Textile Park in Warangal, Subramanyam said, “We are waiting for the proposal from the state government. We have funds. As soon as it comes we will sanction it.”

The proposed park would be a fibre to fabric textile park. It has been proposed to be set up by the state government to boost textile industry in the state. (RKS)
