National fibre policy hits temporary roadblock
Jan '10
The much awaited National Fibre Policy which is expected to provide a boost to the textile sector has met with a temporary roadblock as the Textile Minister; Mr Maran has asked the policy drafting committee to consider the fresh submissions made by the jute sector.

The apex body of the jute industry, Indian Jute Mills Association (IJMA) had suggested allowing contract farming in production of jute, to eliminate middle-men along with setting up of cold storage facilities.

IJMA also submitted that, retting activities could get a significant boost in the form of better productivity and quality if mechanization was promoted and use of Bt seeds should be encouraged to increase yield of raw jute.

The Textile Minister is of the view that these views of the jute sector should be considered while preparing the final draft of the National Fibre Policy which is expected to be announced in March 2010.

The Union Textile Ministry has appointed Dun & Bradstreet, a multi-national consultancy firm as consultant, which in turn has roped in fibre2fashion as a textile consultant. A number of subgroups have been drawn from the various segments of the textile and its allied sectors.
