The Indian Government and the states need to be more proactive with policy initiatives towards sustaining the existing traditional industries, according to president of Indian Cotton Federation J Thulasidharan, who recently said further simplification of regulations is required. Grading and classing of cotton needs a close look, he emphasised.

He was addressing the 40th annual general meeting of the federation. Once quality is assured, India can shift to the next stage of branding Indian cotton. Contamination in cotton needed to be controlled at every stage and irrigation systems have to be improved, he said.

Cotton being a seasonal crop, liberal finance at marginal interest should be made available through warehouse funding system by banking agencies, a news agency quoted Thulasidharan as saying.

Thulasidharan was re-elected as ICF president, P Nataraj and KN Vishwanathan as the federation’s vice presidents, and Atul P Asher as its secretary for 2019-20 at the meeting.
