Tamil Nadu textiles minister OS Manian recently hinted that chief minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami will shortly announce the state’s new textile policy, comprising fresh projects to save the handloom sector. The state is also taking steps to set up handloom storing stations and reduce goods and services tax (GST) for the textile industry, he said in Erode.

Manian said the state government had allotted ₹40 crore this year for the new ‘Support Handloom’ project announced by the chief minister to help handloom weavers, according to a report in a top Indian newspaper.

The minister was chairing a meeting of various handloom association office-bearers, handloom weavers and management representatives of textile companies in Salem, Erode, Tirupur, Coimbatore, Namakkal and Karur districts at the Erode collectorate.

There are 3.19 lakh handloom weavers in the state and 2.44 lakh handlooms function through 1,139 cooperative handloom weavers’ associations, out of which 86 are silk handloom weaving associations and the rest are cotton handloom weavers associations, he said.

Nine hundred and fifty nine weavers’ associations were functioning profitably, he added. (DS)
