Issues related to cotton contamination in India can be resolved once the second phase of the Technology Mission on Cotton, proposed by the textiles ministry, gets approved, according to P Alli Rani, chairman and managing director of Cotton Corporation of India (CCI). The second phase is likely to be approved by the Indian Government soon, she said.
She said this while inaugurating a two-day conference in Coimbatore on ‘Indian Cotton Scenario in the Current Context 2018/2019’ organised by the city-based Indian Cotton Federation (ICF) and the Indian Cotton Association in Bathinda, according to a report in a top south Indian English-language daily.
The need for a CCI warehouse in Tamil Nadu and a price stabilisation fund was discussed at the conference. (DS)
