Textile sector faces technological obsolescence

Jan '10
Recent years have witnessed a drastic growth in the hosiery, and readymade garment production in the Indian textile sector. However, the textile sector is largely unorganized and dispersed.

Due to this, the industry is suffering from technological obsolescence and sub-sectors need up-to-date machinery for production of fabric, yarn, and ready-made garments.

India has taken several steps to boost the industrial growth in the textile sector. Initiatives such as Technology Upgradation Funds Scheme (TUFS), Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP), excise and import duty liberalization of textiles and textile machinery are shots in the arm of the textile industry.

They have not only provided much required fillip for igniting growth but also have leveraged the growth of textile engineering industry which includes manufacture of complete machinery, accessories and parts.
