ITF urges Tamil Nadu govt to announce textile policy
Apr '17
The Indian Texpreneurs Federation (ITF) has urged the state government of Tamil Nadu to introduce a 3-year textile policy to support the industry. The state has a robust eco-system for manufacturing textiles and garments and the government should introduce a policy to help sustain as well as improve the existing production units in the state.

States such as Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Telangana already have such policies, which are bringing textile investments into these states. The federation also said that various states including states that have cotton offer capital subsidies, giving a price advantage to textile units.

With the new textile policy, the government should help improve technology in manufacturing units of the state and work towards making them more energy efficient. Area under cotton in Tamil Nadu should also be increased. Some of the other measures include skill development initiatives, promoting 'Made in Tamil Nadu' brand and working towards the growth of Tiruppur, Karur and Erode clusters, according to a report in a leading daily.

The federation also wants the state government to support the e-commerce sector and promote textile items made of man-made fibres. It seeks a policy that is along the lines of the Central government's textile policy. The government should also set up a task force to discuss its growth plans with the industry.

Members of ITF will meet the state's CM and other ministers to propose the introduction of the textile policy. (KD)
