The Indian textile and apparel sector has witnessed an increase in employment during June 2011 to June 2012, according to a survey conducted by the Labor Bureau under the Ministry of Labor and Employment.
 
In a written reply given in the Lok Sabha, the Lower House of the Indian Parliament, Minister of Textiles Mr. Anand Sharma said the Ministry of Textiles has not conducted any survey on the persons employed in textiles sector and those who have lost their jobs or shifted to professions during the last three years and current year.
 
However, he disclosed the changes in estimated employment based on various quarterly surveys conducted by the Labor Bureau. 
 
In June-September 2011 period, the textile and apparel sector created around 42,000 new jobs, followed by 78,000 employment opportunities in September-December 2011 period.
 
While there was no growth in Indian textile and garment sector employment during December 2011-March 2012 period, the subsequent period till June 2012 observed an increase in employment by about 50,000. Thus, overall 170,000 new jobs were created in the textile and clothing sector during June 2011-June 2012 period.
 
The Ministry of Textiles implements the Textiles Workers Rehabilitation Funds Scheme (TWRFS) for textiles workers who have lost their jobs due to closure of textiles mills.
 
The TWRFS scheme has benefitted 2,854 workers in 2010-11, 1,288 workers in 2011-12, and 520 workers in April 2012-January 2013 period, the Minister said.
