Jharkhand has potential to grow in textile sector: CM Das

Jharkhand has immense potential to grow in the textile sectors, which is likely to be the second largest employer in the state. The tassar silk industry of the state is progressing fast and employs close to 1.8 lakh farmers and about 30,000 weavers. The state will also receive the Centre's help for further development of its textile and silk industry.

The textile, apparel and footwear sectors of Jharkhand have the potential to become the second largest employers after agriculture, according to investors participating in the Global Investors' Summit held in Ranchi.

Union textiles minister Smriti Irani called Jharkhand the tassar capital of India, which has a market in multiple countries like US, UK, Australia, Germany and Switzerland. She promised that the Centre will help develop the silk and textile industry of the country. "The soul of Jharkhand lies in its handloom legacy," said Irani.

She also launched the ‘Bunkar Samwardhan Sahayata Yojna’ to assist weavers and to offer 90 per cent subsidy to differently-abled persons.

Chief Minister Raghubar Das spoke about the state's potential to grow in the textile and footwear sectors at the Summit and also called on the Centre to set up a footwear design development institute in the state.

The tassar production of the state has increased from 143 metric tonnes in 2007-08 to 3,238 metric tonnes in 2016-17, said Dr Ajit Kumar Sinha, director, Central Tassar Research and Training Institute.

Sinha added that byproduct from tassar production usually goes to waste, but it can be used for making various products.

Sudhir Dhingra chairman and managing director of Orient Craft Limited said that the company will generate lakhs of jobs in the state. He added that Jharkhand has a great future in the garment and footwear sectors. His company is willing to invest Rs 3,000 crore and establish six skill development centres. (KD)
