The Hank Yarn Obligation is a mechanism to ensure adequate availability of hank yarn to handloom weavers at reasonable prices.

The existing hank Yarn Packing Notification dated 17.04.2003 promulgated under Essential Commodities Act, 1955 prescribes that every producer of yarn, who packs yarn for civil consumption, shall pack at least 40% of yarn packed for civil consumption in hank form on quarterly basis and not less than 80% of the hank yarn packed shall be of counts 80s and below.

Government of Maharashtra and some of the spinning mills have requested to reduce the Hank Yarn Obligation from 40% to 10%.
