NTC mills getting more productive since FY10: Minister

A continuous improvement has been noted in output of mills under the National Textiles Corporation (NTC) since 2009-10, Textiles Minister Anand Sharma informed the Parliament.

During last fiscal year, fabric production in mills operating under NTC grew to 12.025 million metres from previous fiscal's 8.991 million metres.

Yarn production at these mills has also seen a rise over the last three years. Yarn production increased from 30.6 million kg in 2009-10 to 34.603 million kg in 2010-11 and to 35 million kg during last fiscal, Mr. Sharma stated in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha.

On measures adopted by the Government to raise production, he said, in adherence with the revival scheme approved by the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR), NTC has spent Rs. 11.69 billion for revamping the mills.

Getting ISO certification for 16 mills, use of Information Technology (IT) and engaging women workers to address the labour scarcity issue are some of the steps that have been taken to boost production at these mills, he added.

NTC was incorporated in 1968 to administer the affairs of sick textile undertakings in the private sector that were taken over by the Government under three Acts of Nationalization.
