Textile Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar has said that jute production in the country is good as a price higher than MSP for the crop is available to the farmers, according to an official statement.

His comments came in Kolkata after unveiling the foundation stone of Patsan Bhawan - the proposed unified complex for housing all four HQ offices of the jute sector, namely, Jute Corporation of India, National Jute Manufacturers Corporation, National Jute Board and Office of the Jute Commissioner.

Gangwar said jute products worth Rs 11 crore were exported last year, and underlined that the export would go up, both in terms of volume and worth. He urged the jute-growing states to find out ways and means to utilize the golden fibre to the fullest.

The Minister also launched the Common Facility Centre Scheme for promotion of diversified jute products. Five Common Facility Centres (CFCs) will be set up under Phase-I of the scheme - three in West Bengal and one each in Assam and Bihar. The CFCs are proposed to be set up at Phulia, Deganga and Magra in West Bengal, Barpeta in Assam and Katihar in Bihar.

Gangwar assured that more such CFCs will be set up in the country, if required, for promotion of diversified jute products, the statement said.

The Minister released a number of books and booklets in this connection to highlight the prospect of jute not only for apparels and as an item of daily use, but also for technical textiles such as geotextiles, bandage material etc. He mentioned that research on the use of jute in this field has already shown promising signs, highlighting the successful initiative by IIT Kanpur to develop a jute-based sanitary napkin.
