During this long journey it has come out with many breakthrough technologies and innovations that enriched the industry in meeting competitive challenges. It is a matter of great satisfaction that very recently The Patent Office, Govt. of India has awarded two more patents to NITRA.

One for the innovation of a process to prepare yarn/fabric with UV resistant properties, whilst the other one is for innovating a device to dye indigo yarn in small & medium scale processing units. The abstracts of the patented technologies are given below. These patents are awarded for the R&D work of Dr. M.S.Parmer, Head of Research & Product Development & his team.

Both these patented technologies are due for commercial exploitation. Expression of interest is sought from suitable partners, preferably a machine manufacturer for the second patent.
