Modernisation starts in 2 old spinning mills in Kashmir

Aug '17
Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti recently inaugurated the modernisation projects of two old spinning mills in the state — the Raj Bagh silk factory and the Bemina woolen mills – both located in Srinagar.

The two year-long projects with a cost of about Rs 35 crore is likely to benefit more than 70, 000 weaving and rearing unit holders.

The projects will benefit around 20,000 cocoon growers, other ancillary workers and more than 50,000 shepherds in Kashmir, according to an official press release from the state government.

Silk production at the Raj Bagh factory is expected to rise from 50,000 to 5,00,000 metres per year after the project is completed. Most of the locally-produced silk cocoon will also be procured for this factory, which will stabilise cocoon prices and may result in more cocoon production.

While Rs 11.74 crore will be spent on the modernisation of the Bemina mills, the Raj Bagh factory will receive Rs 23.54 crore. (DS)
