Composite textile mills in for merry days

There is good news for the composite textile mills in India after a very long time. The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has mandated that all future textile and clothing related purchases by all government agencies should be bought from composite textile mills.

The CVC is a central regulatory authority, which decides on the rules and regulations for the government's tendering process. This means that only those mills that have all the facilities like spinning, weaving and fabric processing, under one roof will be eligible to participate in the tendering process.

Previously, government agencies like the public sector units, armed forces and different state and government departments used to place orders with agents who would the quote the cheapest rates and procure the fabrics from powerloom factories and get the fabric processed elsewhere.

This resulted in poor and inconsistent quality of the dress materials that was supplied to the government agencies. Procuring the fabric material from a composite mill will ensure that quality will be consistent irrespective of the volumes, since big mills insist on stringent quality checks.

This order will mean a bonanza for the composite textile mills of the country, since the government agencies all put together place orders for around Rs 20 billion worth of textiles in a year. Textile mills like S Kumar's Nationwide and Mafatlal Fabrics are expected to reap gains, due to this new CVC order.
