J&K Govt to revive state silk industry

May '10
As per the Jammu and Kashmir Government's directives, government officers have been asked to make use of the existing capital to develop cocoon production, thereby, helping to revive the state silk industry.

According to Agriculture Minister, Ghulam Hassan Mir, the industry was destroyed due to militant attacks that housed the state for over two decades. Efforts are now being made to revive the lost glory of the silk industry with the help of latest technologies.

Mir's decision to revive the silk industry came into effect after he visited the adversely affected Mulberry Silkworm Station, basic seed station in Mirgund and the Nihalpur Mulberry Nursery in North Kashmir's Baramulla district.

With around 22,000 farmers working directly and indirectly for the industry, Kashmir silk industry currently produces 800 metric tons of cocoons and also provides 400,000 man-days of work.
