The government has said that it does not set a production target for the textile and garment industry which is predominantly in the private sector.

“Production of textiles and garments is predominantly in the private sector. Therefore, the government does not prescribe specific production targets to the textile and garmenting industry,” Textiles Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar said during the Question Hour in Lok Sabha on Thursday.

He said the data available on production and exports show an increasing trend during the last three years and the current year.

Gangwar said the government has not received any report of textile workers facing problems due to recession in the sector.

The Minister said that increasing the production of textiles and garments through policy initiatives was among the foremost objectives of the government.

The government has launched various policy initiatives and schemes for technology upgradation, funds and development of powerloom sector to strengthen the textile industry in the country and protect the interests of textile workers, Gangwar said. (SH)
