The government of the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu has announced several measures aimed at development of the state's textiles and handloom industry.

The measures include installation of a separate electricity feeder line for textile parks and setting up of a textile library for conservation of traditional designs and aid creation of new designs.

Handlooms and Textiles Minister, S. Sundararaj, said the textile library would be set up at Chennai Co-optex complex with an investment of Rs. 2.5 million.

Conserving the traditional handloom designs, art work, handloom weaving tradition and encouraging handloom design making, with help of modern designing and production techniques, would be the main focus of the library.

In addition to books and periodicals on textile technology, the library would showcase woven handloom items and looms, the Minister said.

The government also proposes to set up a design and training centre at Paramakudy and training centres at Kumbakonam and Kancheepuram. Moreover, revival of the defunct Ramanathapuram district cooperative spinning mill is also on rolls, the Minister informed.

According to a policy note separately issued by the handlooms and textiles department, 17 of 18 common effluent treatment plants (CETPs) in Tirupur have submitted their reports to TN Pollution Control Board (TNPCB).

It said the TNPCB has advised setting up of seven CETPs in the first phase. A sum of Rs. 243.6 million would be released by the state government from the total Rs. 1.74 billion sanctioned by it for setting up of CETPs.

Meanwhile, announcing a 10 percent raise in wages for handloom weavers, causing the cooperative societies to bear an additional expenditure of around Rs. 250 million, the Minister also indicated that the educational aid being provided to wards of weavers would be increased.
