The textile sector of Rajasthan would get top technology equipments, innovations, and quality as part of the plan to bring it in line with the ‘Make in India’ campaign of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje said at the inauguration of ‘Vastra-2014’, the international Trade Fair on Textiles & Apparel in Jaipur, last month.

The Government of India wants to infuse the best in technology and innovation in the textile sector of Rajasthan and make them the best in quality to make the state a “one-stop and most-favoured destination for investment,” Raje said.

She said that the foreign markets thrive on style and innovation and the Rajasthan government wants to introduce these in a big way to make the state a gateway for handicrafts and textiles.

The Indian Government is committed to providing 15 lakh jobs in the state in the next five years and the textile sector will continue to provide a major chunk of employment, Raje added.

The Chief Minister exhorted the industry to fulfil all environmental norms and reduce the use of water and chemicals that can also make the products more attractive to buyers.

She also laid stress on skill development, especially in new areas like technology and medical textiles and geo-synthetics.

Youngsters would be trained in textiles on the shop-floor so that they can join the industry as trained workforce or set up their own units, she said.

She added that the Government of India had already provided an enabling atmosphere by changing labour laws and offering concessions to attract investments.

The Rajasthan State Industrial Development and Investment Corporation Ltd. (RIICO) and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) hosted the third edition of “VASTRA- An International Textile and Apparel Fair 2014” (VASTRA-2014) , from the 29th of October to 31st October, 2014 at the Jaipur Exhibition & Convention Centre.

Under the Union Government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative covering 25 sectors, including the textile and garment industry, investment opportunities for foreign companies and entrepreneurs are available across the entire value chain of synthetics, value-added and specialty fabrics, fabric processing set-ups for all kinds of natural and synthetic textiles, technical textiles, garments, and retail brands.
