As per the Report of the Working Group on Textile and Jute Industry for the Eleventh Five Year Plan (2007-12), the estimated employment in the textile industry is expected to increase from 33.17 million persons as on 31.3.2006 to 45.19 million persons by the terminal year of the Eleventh Plan.

Employment in the allied industries is expected to increase from 54.85 million persons to 60.20 million persons. Consequently, the total employment in the textile sector including allied industries is projected to increase to 105.39 million persons in 2011-12 from the present level of 88.02 million persons, resulting in a net addition of 17.37 million persons.

The vision projected by the textile industry envisages that cloth production would grow at 12% and the total turnover at 16% per annum during the Eleventh Five Year Plan and reach a level of US$ 115 billion by the terminal year of the Eleventh Plan.

In order to achieve the projected level of growth, it is necessary to address the various handicaps of the manufacturing sector such as deficiencies in transport infrastructure, inadequate power supply, inflexible labour laws etc.

In addition to making concerted efforts to address such handicaps, the Government is implementing specific schemes such as Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS), Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP) etc with a view to modernizing the textile industry and enabling the industry to benefit from economies of scaleand integrated production.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Textiles, Shri E.V.K.S. Elangovan, in the Rajya Sabha, in a written reply to a question by Smt. N.P. Durga.
