The new policy provides interest subsidy for setting up new industries and reimbursement of 60 percent of value added tax (VAT) paid to the state government.
 
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the fair, KL Jain, secretary general of Rajasthan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said the demand for textiles from Rajasthan is growing in Latin America, Australia and Africa.
 
Around 161,000 people are employed in Rajasthan textile industry, including mills and the powerloom sector.
 
The four-day fair, organized by Rajasthan State Industrial Development and Investment Corporation Ltd (RIICO) and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), aimed at showcasing the best and latest in textiles from technology to products. 
 
The fair is designed to serve as a platform for launching new products, exploring avenues for new business relations, joint ventures, strategic alliances and partnerships with worldwide textile firms which are looking for setting up businesses in India.
