Federation of Surat Textile Traders Association (FOSTTA) is made up of over 40,000 members, whose combined turnover runs in to billions of rupees. FOSTTA has recently sent a detailed letter to the Union Textiles Ministry requesting for information on the various schemes run for the benefit of the textile sector.

The Surat textile cluster is the biggest textile man-made fabric manufacturing hub in India and churns out nearly 30 million meters of fabric per annum. There are thousands of small and big, yarn and fabric processing units, including 400 fabric processing houses, which together provide direct and indirect employment to over millions of workers.

Fibre2frashion spoke exclusively to Mr Devkishen Manghani, General Secretary of FOSTTA to know more about the contents of the letter. He said, “Despite the fact that, Surat is the biggest textile hub for processing of man-made fabrics, we are not aware of the various schemes run by the textiles ministry for the textiles sector and its workers.

“We have written a letter to the textile ministry to send us the information on the policies framed for ensuring holistic growth of the industry in India like; funds allocated to the various segments in the textile value-chain and as a whole, workers training policy, information on domestic and international trade fairs, etc.

“We are requesting for this information, since the Surat manufactured textile goods are solely dependent on the domestic markets, with exports accounting for a very small percentage of sales and now in order to ensure growth of the sector, we would like to explore global markets, by participating in global trade fairs.

“For this we need information on the various trade fairs held across the globe and also to make us competitive and improve quality, we would like to take advantage of the various schemes rolled out by the government like training workers, incentives on exports, for which we have sent the letter”, he concluded by saying.
