All eyes are on the Finance Minister Mr Pranab Mukherjee, who will present the Indian Budget for the Financial Year 2009-2010 in the Parliament on July 06, 2009.

Will it bring cheer for the textile industry and other sectors and will the new fiscal budget help to relieve issues troubling every industry?

Captains and trade bodies from the textile and apparel sectors, expect the finance minister to pay attention towards the sector, while framing his budget.

In the interim budget, the key policy decisions announced by the finance minister were;

- To counter the negative impact on exports due to the global financial crisis, he proposed to extend the interest subvention of 2 per cent on pre and post shipment credit for certain employment oriented sectors i.e. Textiles (including handloom & handicrafts), Carpets, Leather, Gem and Jewellery, Marine products and SMEs beyond March 31, 2009 till September 30, 2009. This is expected to involve an additional financial outgo of Rs.500 crore during Financial Year 2009-10.
