Mobile app to Surat powerloom weavers' rescue

Jan '16
A mobile app developed by a young computer engineer from Ahmedabad's Nirma University, has come as boon to powerloom weavers in Surat who now have an opportunity to transact business in a secure environment without worrying about fly-by-night operators.

The app bridges the gap between the powerloom weavers and textile traders in the country's largest man-made fabric (MMF) hub, according to a report in The Times of India.

Twenty-year-old Pushpal Maheshwari calls his mobile application ConnecTex. The aim of this application is to make deals between traders, wholesalers and weavers of Surat's textile industry, faster and secure.

Around 300 weavers and traders from the city have joined the network application for doing business in a secure environment.

According to the report, the textile industry sees defaults of over Rs 200 crore every year with shady traders duping weavers. (SH)
