Krishnamoorthy said they propose to launch the new project upon conclusion of the ongoing expansion project in August this year.
 
The decision is mainly stirred by the growth potential of linen fabric market, which is expected to be worth Rs. 25 billion within next few years, he said. 
 
Also, he added that with a turnover of six billion rupees, the linen division of Jaya Shree Textiles now accounts for around three-fourth’s of the linen fabric market in India.
