India's Coimbatore to host textile fair in Feb

Coimbatore in India’s Tamil Nadu will host an international textile fair in February, according to state handloom minister OS Manian. The state has allocated ₹2 crore for the fair, which would showcase its textile products, help find new markets and bridge the production-sales gap, he said after meeting industry leaders to discuss arrangements for the fair.

He hoped the central government would reduce the 5 per cent goods and service tax (GST) imposed on the textile sector, according to a news agency report.

The state would soon fix the pay of handloom weavers coming under the cooperative sector, while the revised pay for workers in the poweroom sector would be decided upon through talks between the district collectors and labour unions, he added. (DS)
