New R&D institute to help boost silk output

With an aim to manufacture about 500 tonnes of silk by 2020, the Orissa government intends on establishing a research and development centre in the state so as to escalate the growth of the sector.

The state government would establish a State Sericulture Research and Development Institute to provide proper management and improvement to the sector, declared, Chief Minister, Naveen Patnaik, during a workshop on sericulture management.

According to him, sericulture has a huge potential in Orissa and therefore this potential should be utilized to provide employment to tribal as well as the backward class people.

Handloom and handicraft Minister, Anjali Behera noted that, currently, the Indian silk industry is growing at a rate of around eight percent; while, the demand for silk fabric is increasing by 10 percent.

Against a requirement of 500 tonnes of silk for 10,000 weavers in the state, Orissa produces merely 81 tons. The Minister said that in a bid to bridge this wide gap, the sector needs reinforcement.
