In the face of testing global conditions, the Ministry of Textiles, has stayed the course by introducing timely policy changes and innovative programmes, aimed at spurring growth and development across the organised and unorganised sectors of the industry.

Driven by the vision for providing all possible support that the textile industry needs like modernaziation or create more jobs, the Ministry's catalytic role in increasing investment, introducing modern technologies and providing marketing support have borne rich fruit.
