Fabrics for armed forces will be made in India: Minister

Aug '18
Indian textiles minister Smriti Irani recently said fabrics needed for the armed forces will be manufactured in India as scientists, her ministry, the industry and the armed forces are working together to achieve that. The government has also appointed a group of secretaries for transforming India as the textile machinery manufacturing hub, she said in Surat.

Irani was in the city to inaugurate Yarn Expo-2018 organised by the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI).

The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) and SGCCI will work together on the design diversification project for Surat’s textile sector to help the manufacturers get more value for their fabrics and raise the export potential of the fabrics, a report in a top Indian English-language daily quoted her as saying.
