Union minister of labour and employment Bandaru Dattatreya has asked Telangana government to submit new proposals for further developing the textile industry in the state.

“The Centre has earmarked Rs 6,000 crore as a special package for textile and garment sector to take it on par with Bangladesh and Vietnam, creating textile parks in the country, helping in creation of infrastructure in textile sector, promoting fashion technology so as to give fillip to the production especially in small-scale industries,” Dattatreya said at a press conference in Hyderabad.

“The approval for a special package for employment generation and promotion of exports in textile and apparel sector will be for the generation of one crore jobs in this industry over next three years and, of this, 75 per cent would be women,” the minister added.

The slew of measures included in the special package would create new jobs, and help in social transformation through women empowerment, he said.

He said the Telangana state government can send proposals to the Centre to take advantage of the special package. The government can make plans for new initiatives in places like Warangal, Gadwal, Narayanpet and Pochampalli, which are already home to textile and handloom manufacturing units.

The guidelines issued by the Central government would be discussed with Telangana textiles minister, he said.

Explaining the Employees Provident Fund Scheme Reforms initiated by the Union government, the minister said the entire 12 per cent of the employers contribution would be borne by the Centre under the EPF for new employees of garment industry for first three years, who are earning less than Rs 15,000 per month.

According to him, there will be no inoperative EPF accounts in the coming days and with the usage of latest technology, every PF account will be linked to UAN number and Aadhaar. (RKS)
