In the coming 100 days, the Ministry will initiate the constitution of a Working Group for National Fibre Policy comprising all stake-holders of the textiles and fiber value chain. This Group will evolve the policy in a time-bound fashion in consultation with all stake-holders. The Report would be a trend setter for the textiles sector for the coming years.

In the coming 100 days, the Ministry will make efforts to achieve an additional allocation of Rs. 1,660 crore to CCI to meet out its MSP obligations.

(vii) Revival and Modernisation of National Textile Corporation (NTC).

In the coming 100 days,
(i) Three Mills viz. Tata Mills, India United Mill No. 5 and Podar Mills in Mumbai will be inaugurated (in August 2009). (These composite mills have been modernized by NTC at a cost of Rs. 73.10 crore).

(viii) Finalisation of Action Plan for Promotional Activities of all Export Promotion Councils/Bodies.

In coming 100 days, the Ministry will promote Mega Show in Japan (International Fashion Fair) in July 2009. Japan is one of the biggest consumers of textiles and clothing, but India has a very negligible market share (US $ 327 million in 2007 representing 1.12% of Japan's total textiles imports). The Mega Show in Japan will showcase products of 44 textiles exporters with focus on synthetics and cotton fabric. In all, 50 booths have been booked for this International Fashion Fair and the Ministry will provide over Rs.3 crore to exporters for participation in the Fair.
