Indian Minister of Textiles K Sambasiva Rao has launched a new scheme called the North East Region Textile Promotion Scheme (NERTPS), during the meeting of senior representatives of all North East Indian states held in New Delhi last week, reports The Hindu.
 
The NERTPS scheme undertaken by the Ministry aims to promote and modernize the textile sector of the North East region through providing the required Government support in terms of raw material, seed banks, machinery, common facility centers, skill development, design, marketing support and more.
 
The main objectives of the scheme include increasing the value of textile production, technology upgradation, improvement in design capability, diversification of product lines and value addition, better access to domestic and export markets, clusterisation and improvement in labor productivity, as well as market access and market promotion.
 
Under the scheme, a project-based implementation strategy will be followed in order to modernize and develop the textiles sector in North East Indian states, and the Government would be undertaking strategies such as development of textile clusters, marketing and promotion of textile products, comprehensive project for upgradation of powerloom units, skill development projects and projects for the development of sericulture, handicrafts, technology upgradation of handlooms and other textile activities.
 
Welcoming the Government’s NERTPS scheme, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki urged the Ministry of Textiles to allocate funds under scheme for modernization of equipment and other infrastructure for the women weavers of the state.
 
Weavers in Arunachal are experts and capable of producing competitive products for the national as well as the international markets, he added.
 
The NERTPS scheme is a part of the various initiatives taken up by the Government of India exclusively for the North East Indian states. The Ministry of Textiles has earmarked 10 percent of its total budget for these schemes which include NERTPS, Scheme for usage of Geotextiles in the North Eastern States, Scheme for Promoting Agrotextiles in North Eastern States and more.
