Textiles Minister Santosh Gangwar has said that his Ministry will approach the Cabinet within a fortnight to seek approval for the new national textiles policy that seeks to create 35 million additional jobs.

"We will approach the Cabinet in 10-15 days for approval of the new Textiles Policy," Gangwar told PTI.

The new policy aims to achieve textiles exports worth $300 billion by 2024-25 and envisages creation of additional 35 million jobs. It also aims to address concerns over lack of adequate skilled work force, labour reforms, attract investments, and provide a road map for the textile and clothing industry.

The Textiles Ministry had already initiated the process of reviewing the National Textile Policy, 2000 and suggest a road map for the textile and apparel industry in view of various changes in the sector on the domestic and international levels. (SH)
