'Bold policy initiatives can boost garmenting in India'
Jul '17
India could get a bigger share of the garmenting market, but that will need significantly bold policy initiatives like thinking of large labour-intensive parts of the country like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh and promoting the industry there in a big, big way. This needs to be done on a big scale like for instance, MAS has done in Sri Lanka.

“In India, to do scaled businesses is difficult; to do skill-oriented businesses is easier. So, focus more on technical textiles or value-added fabrics, but not in the mass segments where cost is a differentiator,” says Neelesh Hundekari, a keen observer of the Indian textiles and apparel industry and a Partner in the Consumer and Retail Practice at AT Kearney.

“I think Indian businesses in both yarn and fabric need to up their product development ability—to be super good in terms of being responsive to customers, in producing samples, taking up challenging products to do and turning them around really fast, being very sharp on delivery times. Other countries deliver much faster and their order compliance is much better,” Hundekari told Fibre2Fashion.
