With an aim to facilitate export of world renowned varieties of fine cotton fabrics from Samba region in India's Jammu & Kashmir, the Export Facility Centre (EFC) in the region is being upgraded and modernized.

J&K Minister for Industries and Commerce, Surjit Singh Slathia, said the project having an outlay of Rs. 61 million is being funded by the Union Ministry of Commerce under Assistance to States for Infrastructure Development for Exports programme, and added that Rs. 43 million have already been spent by now.

Mr. Slathia said that modernization of EFC would increase exports of world renowned varieties of fine cotton fabrics like Crewal Dusuti, Majri, Dusuti and Khadder produced in Samba region.

He informed that around 5,000 metres of fine cotton and linen fabrics produced at the EFC in Samba have been shipped to the UK.

Post upgradation, the cotton fabric weavers will be able to avail all pre and post loom facilities at one place in the EFC.

Work in respect of installation and commissioning of the new machinery needed for upgradation of the EFC has already been completed, and testing of textile products is also regularly being undertaken at the CAD and physical and chemical testing laboratories that are fully operational now.
