While the state produces around 60 lakh bales of cotton annually, only about 10 lakh bales are consumed within the state. The new textile policy will aim to increase cotton consumption within the state.
To signal that the state has already started working on the new policy, industry minister KT Rama Rao met representatives of the textile sector and other stakeholders. He assured them that inputs received from them would be considered before finalising the policy.
“The minister held a meeting with representatives of textile industry, weavers associations, and officials of the government and assured them the suggestions made by them would be considered positively while preparing the policy,” an official release issued by the department of industries said.
Protection of interests of the handloom industry would also be taken into account while framing the new policy, the release added. (RKS)
