The committee will work to implement integrated development schemes and programmes of the central textiles ministry to provide employment opportunities in the sector to the youth.
It will also work to modernise cotton production, spinning, weaving and garment manufacturing apart from promoting export of textile products. The committee will submit its report in a month time, according to a report in an Indian newspaper.
Apart from these members, subject experts may be invited in the committee in the case if other points are under consideration.
