The ministry of textiles has taken multiple steps to promote the wool sector in India in the last three years, according to the latest achievements report of the ministry. A total grant of Rs 33.98 crore has been released under pashmina Wool Development Scheme (PWDS) and pashmina Promotion Programme in the last three years, says the report.

The government has distributed foundation stock of animals to 340 families in Kargil to promote the sector. Health coverage and medicines have also been provided to over 2 lakh pashmina goats annually. Food supplements have also been provided to 40,000 goats annually, pre-empting starvation deaths.

Owing to the steps taken by the government, pashmina productivity per goat enhanced by 9.3 per cent. Close to 525 tents have been provided to nomads in Ladakh and 5 solarised community centres have also been completed.

Additionally, over 40 lakh sheep have benefitted under the Sheep & Wool Improvement Scheme (SWIS) in the states of Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gjarat, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharastra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana under components of Healthcare to Animals.
