Panabakka Lakshmi, Minister of State for Textiles has informed that textiles industry witnessed a slow down following the price crash in cotton prices from Rs. 62500 / candy to Rs. 29500 / candy in May 2011 with many industries left with large high priced inventories of cotton and cotton yarn resulting in erosion of working capital and imposing considerable stress on the quality of assets.

The Textiles industry has witnessed an incipient turn around in financial year 2012-13 as cotton yarn prices have picked up and rupee depreciation has enhanced competitiveness.

Government addressed the slowdown in Textiles industry by proposing a debt restructuring package for textiles industry amounting to Rs.35000 crores Following consultations with Reserve Bank of India, Government has issued directions to Banks to open special windows for undertaking the debt restructuring of textiles industry on a case by case basis in accordance with prudential guidelines of Reserve Bank of India.

Government also enhanced the 11th plan allocation of Ministry of Textiles from Rs. 14000 crores to Rs.19000 crores for providing benefits to textiles industry.

The plan allocations in 2010-11 was to Rs. 4500 crores and 2011-12 was Rs. 5000 crores and 2012-13 Rs. 7000 crores.

Government implements the Scheme for Integrated Textiles Parks (SITP) which is aimed at establishing greenfield infrastructure for textiles industry and generate employment.

The SITP has a 12th Plan allocation of Rs. 1400 crores, 21 new parks were sanctioned in 2011-12 to generate an estimated investment of Rs. 3500 crores and employment of 3.5 lakh workers, over the next 4 years.

Government incentivizes investments in the Textiles sector under the Technology Upgradation Funds Scheme (TUFS) which is a backended interest re-imbursement scheme. TUFS catalyzed an investment of Rs. 1.37 lac crores in 11th Plan with a subsidy of Rs. 11949 crores.
