The Union Minister of Textiles, Mr Dayanidhi Maran was in Surat to inaugurate the first of its kind Eco-Textile Park, a green field project in Palsana, near Surat in Gujarat on Wednesday. Gujarat Eco-Textile Park Ltd (GETP) is state of art textile industrial estate which boasts infrastructure of international class supported by Ministry of Textile, Government of India under SITP scheme.

Replying to a question from Fibre2fashion regarding framing a policy on technical textiles, the Minister said, "The technical textiles policy would be included within the National Fibres policy, which would be announced within three months". He also emphasised on the need to create indigenous manufacturing facilities and increasing domestic consumption of technical textiles.

He further said that the consumption of technical textiles in India is only 4 percent compared to 23 percent in US, 22 percent in Europe and 13 percent in China and that there was an urgent need to do more research and towards that end two 'Centres of Excellence in Technical Textiles' had been planned to be set up, one each in Ahmedabad and Surat.
