NIFT to get deemed University status, says Textiles Minister Shankersinh Vaghela

May '05
union textile minister shankersinh vaghela addressing 23rd export award function of the handloom export promotion council (hepc) at gandhinagar announced that the national institute of fashion technology (nift) will shortly be accorded deemed university status.

he said, “an act in this regard is currently being framed,”

he also informed that two more nift institutes are being developed, at surat (in gujarat) and at lucknow (up).

rsing interests among the students in institutions teaching fashion technology will be taken care of through their establishment, he said.

he criticised fashion shows held in the country for showing “more skin” rather than creativity in fabrics.

he extolled the students graduating out of nift institutes to focus more on creating 'practical designs' that would cater to export markets.

to prevent 'slow death' of handloom industry, the minister conveyed that his ministry is contemplating to develop a special logo which will distinguish handlooms from other fabrics.

he feared that the powerlooms were biggest threat to the traditional handloom industry where products churned out by the former are easily passed off as handloom products.

“we are thinking of developing a logo or a hallmark for identifying handlooms from other products to stop this practice,” he said.

the country has 65 lakh artisans; 62 per cent of which are women and about 35 lakh looms that survived on subsidies.
ies.

he called upon the hepc to create awareness among artisans about various schemes launched by the government and decried the lack of information on aid not being passed to the handloom workers.
