He has specified in his speech that there is need of innovation in environment protection. According to him, innovation is also essential in field of management in every industry.

Cost effectiveness is the need of the hour, but the cost cutting should not be primarily just a cut in labour costs! Contract labour which is now practiced in Textile Processing has some disadvantages like improper training, difficulties in motivating them & production based pay scale which leads to faulty dyeing, steam losses etc.

It is the trend of students from technical institutions to prefer white collar, high salaried jobs resulting in non-availability of qualified technicians in Textile Processing. Hence, this is another area where prime innovation is needed.

Mr. S. Balaraju, Jt. Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India in his inaugural address talked about reluctance of processing sector to come forward with proposals. He has mentioned that upgradation in processing sector is not keeping pace with other sectors. He also urged the processors to make suitable proposals for the 12th plan.
