'Modernise powerlooms to produce value-added fabric'
Dec '16
The existing powerlooms in Sircilla district of Telangana has to be modernised so as to meet the growing demand for value-added fabric, said additional secretary (Textiles), Pushpa Subrahmanyam. The production of value-added fabric can be increased by developing the textile park in Sircilla by utilising the schemes implemented by the Central government.

The Centre is in the process of modernising 30,000 powerlooms in the district, while completing work in about 5,500 powerlooms, said Subrahmanyam during the inspection of textile park in Sircilla. Empty plots in the textile parks can be utilised by establishing new units, said Subrahmanyam, who was accompanied by state textiles and handlooms director Shailaja Ramayyar and Rajanna Sircilla district collector D Krishna Bhaskar.

Subrahmanyam laid emphasis on establishment of a yarn bank in Sircilla and improving dyeing techniques to increase overall production, while interacting with the representatives of the textiles and handloom units.

There is no dearth of finance and the Central government is also implementing various schemes for the development of textile and jute industry in the country. These funds will help in installing and adoption of new technology in powerlooms to get improved results. The weavers will also be trained to get accustomed to the new techniques of producing fabric.

The Centre has also sought support of Telangana government in the framing of a policy that focuses on mulling of power subsidy for textiles industries across the country.

Subrahmanyam also helped textile workers in Sircilla open bank accounts. (RR)
