The Government has no information about the Chinese manufactured textiles being pushed into India with 'Made in India' labels. The imports from China to India, in any case, cannot affect India's textiles exports to Nigeria. This information was given by the Minister of State for Textiles, Smt. Panabaaka Lakshmi in the Rajya Sabha, in a written reply to a question by Shri Ishwar Singh and Shri Mahendra Mohan. India's textiles exports to Nigeria during the last three years are given below:
