Oct '12
Since its inception in 1954 as an autonomous, non-profit export promotion body, The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council - Texprocil - has become the international face of Indian cotton textiles successfully facilitating exports around the world.

For the foreign buyers, it has opened the entire range of Indian cotton yarns, fabrics and made-ups and has become the one-stop source for these commodities, while for the discerning Indian sellers it has brought within reach the opportunities offered by the global market. The ever-increasing quantum of exports and diversity of the markets explored bear testimony to the success of Texprocil.

Texprocil Awards for Outstanding Export Performance

The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (Texprocil) recognizes the role played by the exporting community in developing and diversifying India's exports of Cotton Textiles, by distributing awards annually for outstanding export performance.

The first in the series of such Annual Awards was instituted in the year 1975-76. Since then these awards have been well received and have acquired a status of prestige. Winners of these awards are looked upon as the cream of the exporting community. The expansion of the scheme of awards from 1993-94 include the institution of a special Gold trophy for highest global exports, common to all categories to honour the single most meritorious export performer.

Exporters keenly compete with each other to bag the prestigious Texprocil Awards every year. These awards have helped to inculcate a spirit of healthy competition among exporters.

Kiran Dhingra, Secretary, Ministry of Textiles was the Chief Guest at the function and she presented the awards to the outstanding export performers in the cotton textile industry. The occasion was also graced by the presence of Shri V Srinivas, Joint Secretary (Exports), Smt. Sunaina Tomar, Joint Secretary. Textiles and Shri A B Joshi Textile Commissioner.

Shri Amit Ruparelia, the outgoing Chairman of Texprocil, welcomed everybody to the evening which included a cultural programme followed by the distribution of Awards.

In her speech Smt. Kiran Dhingra emphasized the fact that India’s exports of cotton textiles is growing at a healthy rate and the industry as a whole is geared enough to achieve the target set by the Ministry of Textiles.
