Today, Mr Maheshwar Sahu – Principal Secretary (Industries), Govt of Gujarat, echoed what was conveyed by cotton ginners of Gujarat and reported exclusively by fibre2fashion, that there is an urgent need to set up more spinning mills in Gujarat.

Mr Sahu was present at the road show organised by the Ministry of Textiles to popularize the extended 'Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks' in India

Fibre2fashion had reported and is worthwhile mentioning again that, Gujarat which is the biggest producer of cotton in India, sends 70 percent of its raw cotton output to other states and the yarn produced out of that cotton, again comes back to Gujarat for value-addition into fabrics, which increases the costs to a great extent.

To a question from fibre2fashion, about ginners who had raised these concerns, Mr Sahu said, “We have received feedback from 5-6 top industrial houses on the need to have more spinning mills in the state, which we are examining in minute detail.

“To make these units viable, we are trying to ensure that electricity is available at competitive rates and towards that end we are exploring the possibilities of providing them lignite which will help them set up captive generation plants and also generate electricity at low costs.

“We are also evaluating the viability of setting up a 5-6 spinning clusters in the state on the lines of SITPs and will also forward a proposal to the Union Textiles Ministry for approval”, he added by saying.

When asked about setting up 'Centres of Excellence for Technical Textiles' in Gujarat, he replied by saying, “Technical Textiles has huge potential and applications in various other sectors like, medical, construction, etc. In that context we have forwarded proposals to the Govt of India to make MANTRA in Surat and ATIRA in Ahmedabad as 'Centres of Excellence for Technical Textiles', along with which we are exploring other possibilities too”.
