Government revamping tech mission on cotton

Indian Government is working to revamp the technology mission on cotton. There already have been a series of meetings with stakeholders and researchers in this connection. The revamped cotton mission is expected to have four parts - two to deal with cotton productivity under the agriculture ministry and the other two to be under the textiles ministry.
 
India is the largest producer of cotton globally. A technology mission on cotton with four mini missions was implemented by the Union Government from 2000 to 2012. 
 
"We will propose it to the ministry. The mission will have four parts. The first two will deal with cotton productivity and will come under the agriculture ministry. the third and fourth missions will be under the textile ministry," textile commissioner Kavita Gupta told a leading daily.
 
"We have had a series of meetings with stakeholders and researchers," Gupta was quoted as saying by the daily.
 
Experts said there was a need to revamp technology mission on cotton so that the country adopts global standards with a focus on quality. 
 
Gupta said that to get a clear picture on production and capacity of various segments in the textile value chain, the ministry had made annual and monthly filing of data mandatory. All units from ginning to garmenting need to file data on quality and quantity. Till October, it can be done manually or online, and from October only online option will be available.
 
The annual data will give the profile of the unit while the monthly information will give a clear picture on production of various textile products. "This is filed by the industry and for its benefit. It will help the Government come out with the right policy interventions," she said. For MSMEs, the system has been simplified, and for the very small units, a survey will be done. (SV)
