With an aim to decrease dependence on imported raw silk, the Central Silk Board is planning to establish automatic silk reeling units.

Arindam Basu, Director of the Central Silk Technology Research Institute, while speaking at a sensitisation programme on production of high quality raw silk from Indian cocoons, said the domestically prepared raw silk using automatic reeling machines can be utilized for high speed rapier powerlooms owing to the consistency in size along with reduced losses during degumming and less winding breaks.

He informed that the 400 automatic reeling units in the country have an annual production capacity of 34,000 kg of high-grade raw silk, while operating in double shift.

K. Sukumar Menon, Joint Director, Corporate and Enterprise Development Cell of the Central Silk Board, said the Board is active in setting up automatic silk reeling machines and multi-end reeling units to help the silk industry in accordance with the Catalytic Development Programme.

He added that the country's dependence on imported raw silk would decrease in near future as the automatic silk reeling units are already undertaking production of 2A-4A international quality raw silk.

Further, the Board is also extending financial and technical assistance for establishing automatic silk reeling machines in India, while working in association with State's Department of Sericulture, he revealed.

By now, the Board has established seven automatic silk reeling units, of which three are in Tamilnadu, two in Karnataka and two in Andhra Pradesh. These units have been established to help the silk powerloom industry to benefit from the same, he informed.

The demand for high-grade bivoltine silk is continuously rising from the side of powerlooms and the Board has no other option but to domestically produce the same rather than relying on imports from China, Dr. B Saratchandra, Director-Technology of the Central Silk Board said.
