J&K Minister stresses on revival of silk industries

The Jammu and Kashmir Industries Limited (JKI) has been directed by the State Minister for Industries and Commerce, SS Slathia, to submit a complete practical report for reviving the State's traditional silk industry and to help it regain its past glory.

The Minister suggested that services of skilled and expert artisans should be hired while focusing on upgradation of the machinery to turn the PSU into a viable enterprise.

He recommended that the PSU should take expert consultancy services from the Business School of Jammu University for reviving the Joinery Mills at Srinagar and Jammu.

He added that the various skill upgradation and training programmes should be organized by the management for its employees and workers.

The Minister admired the PSU's management for its decision of operating the Rambagh Silk Factory in two-shifts.

He stated that a revival plan is under consideration for Woollen Mills Bemina, Silk Weaving Factory Rajbagh and Bari Brhamana and Pampore based Joinery Mills so as to convert the JKI production units into profit-making units.

As a first step towards achieving this goal, Rs. 25 million has already been sanctioned during the current fiscal year for revival of Bemina Woollen Mills, he disclosed.

JKI Managing Director Javid Iqbal revealed that a draft Project Report (DPR) has been acquired from Central Silk Technology Research Institute (CSTRI), Bangalore, with an aim to re-establish the lost glory of Rajbagh Silk Weaving Factory, which has eventually turned into a tourist attraction. He said that discussions with experts in this regard are now in the final phase.

Likewise, it was also revealed that upgradation work of two Joinery Mills is also being undertaken with an aim to boost productivity of these units.
