Ministry of Textiles has released Rs.9000 Crores to the textile industry under the Textile Up gradation Fund Scheme (TUFS).

I hope more women entrepreneurs would avail of facilities under TUFS and other schemes like Scheme for Integrated Textile Park (SITP)”, said Mrs. Shashi Singh, Jt. Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, while inaugurating the workshop for women entrepreneurs organized by FICCI with the support of the Office of the Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India, in Mumbai.

Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, Maharashtra Government and SIDBI invited women to avail of several supportive schemes to start their business and help existing entrepreneurs to expand their business. Mrs. Shashi Singh invited women entrepreneurs to attend the Reverse Business Seller Meets to expand their markets.

Mr. Manoj Patodia, Executive Committee Member, FICCI-WRC and Managing Director, Prime Textiles Ltd., focused on the Textile Sector which is the higher employment generator and largest exporter, and identified special opportunities for women entrepreneurs in Technical Textiles.

Ms.Ujwala Singhnia, Executive Director, Raymonds Ltd., said, “If you empower a man, you empower only one person but if you empower a woman you empower the whole family”.

Extending the analogy, Mr. Manak Singh, Executive Director, TiE, Mumbai, said, “By empowering a women we will be empowering a whole society and the nation”. He noted that women entrepreneurs need not go too far to market their products as they have a very huge domestic market which could be fully tapped.

Mr. Anita Kulkarni, Assistant General Manager, SIDBI presented the various financing schemes of SIDBI which could be availed by the women entrepreneurs.

The Technical sessions discussed all aspects of doing business in Home Textiles, Medical Textiles and Embroidery Business.
