In a bid to provide a boost to the textile fabric industry, the Manipur government will provide assistance to entrepreneurs who propose to set up powerlooms in the state.

This was revealed by O Nabakishore - Principal Secretary (Commerce and Industry), Manipur at a buyer-seller meet organised at Imphal. The meet was attended by Mr Bharat Chajjer, Chairman – PEDXCIL.

The meet was organised by the Powerloom Development and Export Promotion Council (PDEXCIL), Textile Commissioner's Office - Kolkata, Government of Manipur and IGIRA Power Loom Service Centre, Guwahati.

Nabakishore said that the government wants to set up a powerloom industry in the state and the incentives will help the powerloom industry to grow faster.

The government has been sponsoring training of weavers on powerlooms in other states since the past few months.

He also added that a Textile Park is being set up at Loitang Khunou which would help the powerloom weavers to sell their products.
