The letter also requested Irani to help in announcement of the guidelines and procedures to follow and avail the required benefit from the recently announced special package for the garment sector.
 
“With your invaluable support, positive approach and guidance, we are confident that we could fulfill the aim of prime minister, to reach the envisaged export target (garment) of $30 billion from $17 billion in next three years and also provide the employment to one crore people, mainly to women workers,” the letter read.
