The union power ministry is mulling offering electricity at competitive rates to the weavers in the powerloom industry in order to provide a level playing field to the sector. This assurance was offered to union textiles minister Smriti Irani by union power minister Piyush Goyal in a meeting, in which issues faced by the powerloom industry were discussed.

A news agency quoted an official source as saying that Piyush Goyal will discuss the issue of offering competitive electricity rates to the powerloom industry with various states, and subject to these states agreeing, the decision will be implemented at the earliest.

The meeting which was also attended by representatives from the Indian textile industry also decided that various Indian textile sector trade bodies will draft a report in consultation with the government on technology upgradation for the weaving industry. (AR)
