The office of textile commissioner, Mumbai, recently floated an expression of interest-cum-request for proposal to select an agency to assess the PowerTex India, Converged Group Insurance and Revised Comprehensive Powerloom Cluster Development schemes, which are in place till March 2020. The textiles ministry had launched these for the power loom sector.

The aim is to assess the performance of these three schemes for growth and development of the decentralised power loom sector and identify gaps.

The schemes were launched for harmonised growth and development of the power loom sector in terms of improvement in infrastructure facilities, market development, upgradation of plain power loom to overcome the lack of preparatory and pre-loom facility in power loom clusters, to make available raw material (yarn) at reasonable price and insurance coverage for power loom workers, removing various bottlenecks of existing power loom clusters of the country.

The selected agency will evaluate the contribution of the schemes to the growth of power loom sector either directly or by way of creating a leverage of growth in terms of increase in production, improvement in quality and cost of production, reduction in wastage, market improvement, employment generation and social security.
