Government of India under Textile Workers Rehabilitation Fund Scheme (TWRFS) provides interim relief to the textile workers rendered unemployed as a consequence of permanent closure of any particular portion or entire textile unit in the private sector. 

Assistance under the Scheme is payable to eligible workers after the mill is formally closed for the purpose of enabling them to settle in another employment. The Scheme is not applicable to Public Sector employees. The Scheme is applicable to whole of the country including the State of Rajasthan.

The Textile Workers Rehabilitation Fund Scheme (TWRFS) has been reviewed in consultation with stakeholders including representatives of textile industry, State governments, representatives of trade unions and recommendations for larger coverage of the scheme has been incorporated in the draft revised scheme for the 12th Five Year Plan.

The revised scheme provides for enhanced coverage and simplification of implementation procedures.
