Eri-silk production unit set up in North East region

In order to provide a thrust to the silk industry in the upper reaches of Assam, what is now known as Bodoland Territorial Area, a spanking new and technologically modern eri-silk unit has been set up in Dimalgaon.

The mill which has been set up at a cost of Rs 30 million is the first of its kind in the North-East region of India which has 840 spindles and a capacity to produce 30,000 kgs of eri-silk yarn per annum.

Traditionally eri-silk yarn is spun on hand spinning devices, or what is called the 'Charkha', but the Centarl Silk Board has conducted trails to produce eri-silk yarn on mechanized machines which have shown encouraging results.

The mill will need around 70,000 kgs of eri-silk cocoons per annum and this is expected to help the small and marginal farmers involved in sericulture activities in the state. Eri-silk yarn is used to manufacture high value silk products.

The Bodo region produces 25 to 30 per cent of the total eri silk production in the region, but nearly 40-60 per cent of eri cocoons produced in the region is transported to others states because of lack of adequate facilities for conversion.

Establishment of this mill will help to provide direct marketing opportunities to the producers, due to which the silk board and the Bodo Council have jointly supported the establishment of the eri-spinning mill.
