There is good news around the corner for the jute industry which is going through stressful times since the last few years. The government will make it mandatory to use jute sacks in packaging of certain commodities handled by government agencies.

This is over and above the increase in cash incentive announced in the stimulus package announced by the government a few days back. It would be made mandatory to pack commodities like cement, sugar, fertilisers and food grains in jute bags.

This is expected to provide an impetus to the jute sector which is reeling under difficult circumstances with 30 of the 160 jute mills in the country already closed down and a similar number tottering under pressure.

To get a clear picture of the new policy and the state of the sector in current times, Fibre2fashion spoke exclusively to Mr Kamram Rahman, Managing Director of Pubali Jute Mills Ltd.

He said, “Jute industry has been urging the Government, since a long time to enact a law making it mandatory to pack all food grains, fertilizers, sugar and cement in jute bags, which can help increase the demand for jute in domestic markets”.

He added, “The present Government has considered this matter and will shortly be passing a law to use jute sacks in packing certain commodities mentioned above and if it is implemented, it will be very helpful to the jute sector”.

“Under this law it would be compulsory for traders to use jute bag for packaging certain commodities like food grains, sugar etc. This kind of act was passed in India way back in 1987”, he continued by saying.

“Basically there is ample raw jute available within the country to fulfill the demand of the industry. Better quality seed should be made available, for getting good yields and along with which modern machineries should also be installed, he concluded by saying.
