KVIC boosting cotton sliver output by upgrading facilities

Mar '17
In order to increase supply of cotton sliver to spin yarn on khadi charkas, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) has planned to technologically upgrade its six cotton sliver producing facilities. The government owned nodal agency for promoting khadi, will also set up two new plants to produce cotton sliver in a bid to also meet rising demand.

"We will upgrade all our six sliver plants to increase supply of sliver to khadi institutions," V K Saxena, chairman of KVIC was quoted as saying by a leading daily. "Most of the plants are more than thirty years old and it has become necessary to replace technology for increased supply."

By upgrading existing facilities, KVIC will be able to increase production of cotton sliver to 5.6 million kgs per annum, up 40 per cent over the current capacity and will spend around Rs 35-40 crore on the same.

In order to offer moderate wages and ensure a sustainable income, KVIC will also increase wages per hank from Rs 5.50 to Rs 7.00 from April 2017, which will help over 1.5 million khadi artisans across the country. (AR)
