NITRA has been continuously engaged in R&D activities for Indian textiles industry since its inception in 1975. During this long journey it has come out with many breakthrough technologies and innovations that enriched the industry in meeting competitive challenges. It is a matter of great satisfaction that very recently The Patent Office, Govt. of India has awarded two more patents to NITRA.

One for the innovation of a process to prepare yarn/fabric with UV resistant properties, whilst the other one is for innovating a device to dye indigo yarn in small & medium scale processing units. The abstracts of the patented technologies are given below. These patents are awarded for the R&D work of Dr. M.S.Parmer, Head of Research & Product Development & his team.

Both these patented technologies are due for commercial exploitation. Expression of interest is sought from suitable partners, preferably a machine manufacturer for the second patent.
