Thiru. Dayanidhi Maran , Textiles Minister has emphasised the need to open National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) specialized centres to cater to the specific needs of traditional and emerging textiles clusters.

“We should take step to bridge the gap and open NIFT specialized centres to cater to the specific needs of traditional and emerging textiles clusters,” said Thiru. Maran, while addressing the 15th Convocation of the National Institute of Fashion Technology(NIFT)on 18th November, 2009. There is a sustained demand for NIFT intervention from the Textiles clusters viz., Dodbhallapur, Anantpur, Kohlapur, Surat, Jaipur, Ludhiana and Tirupur, said the Minister.

He called upon the NIFT designers to be equally concerned about the handloom weavers, khadi weavers and handicrafts artisans and ensure that the design interventions help them too.
