TEXPROCIL honours textile exporters with awards
Dec '13
The Cotton Textile Export Promotion Council -TEXPROCIL, is the first export promotion council set up in India in the year 1954, and is responsible for promoting cotton textile exports. TEXPROCIL has become the international face of Indian textiles, a one point stop for those who wish to source textiles from India.

It has 3500 members who are engaged in the exports of cotton textiles i.e. yarns, fabrics and Made ups including Home textiles.

Last year the members of the Council exported close to US$ 10 Billion of textiles to major markets in the world including China. This year the council has targeted to export US$ 12 Billion and is confident of exceeding its target set once again.

TEXPROCIL promotes exports through buyer seller meets, participation in trade fairs, in depth study and through leading delegations. TEXPROCIL assists the ministry in formulating policies to promote textile exports


Every year the council recognizes the role played by exporters by giving out awards in different categories. This year the council gave away 57 awards, in thirteen different categories, including the coveted Gold trophy for the highest global exports which was given to Welspun Global Brands. TEXPROCIL’s awards are recognised the world over by textile importers and hence exporters attach high importance to these awards.

TEXPROCIL’s exports in 2012-13 were as under:

Yarn--- US$ 3.5 billion

Fabrics--- US$ 2 billion

Home textiles --US$ 4.4 billion


Function started with an invocation song sung by Ms. Pavitra Srinivasan followed by lighting of the Kuthuvilaku or the traditional lamp. The function began with a dance recital by Padma Shri, Ms. Shobana Chandrakumar and her students.

Welcome address by Chairman of TEXPROCIL Manikam Ramaswami, also Chairman of Loyal Textile Mills Ltd.
