During the period between April 2011 and March 2012, there was a significant drop in the prices of Cocoons in various Cocoon markets from about Rs.275/- per Kg. to about Rs.175/- per Kg. as a result of reduction in prices of raw silk in the domestic market.
However, prices improved in the recent months and Cocoon prices have gone up to about Rs. 280/- per Kg.
The Government through the Central Silk Board (CSB) is implementing a Centrally Sponsored Scheme viz “Catalytic Development Programme” (CDP) in collaboration with State Sericulture Department of all the States for development of sericulture and providing support to improve the reeling infrastructure to stabilize the price of cocoons and raw silk.
The Government has taken steps to improve productivity of Cocoons and raw silk, strengthen the extension support to the farmers and develop improved seeds and host plants. Government has also permitted import of modern Automatic Reeling machines and Dupion Reeling machines along with their accessories and packages at concessional duty of customs to bring down cost of production and make the sericulture and reeling sector competitive.
