To provide better support service to the textile and clothing industry, Ghaziabad based Northern India Textile Research Association (NITRA) will intensify its core activity of research and development. This was stated by Sanjay Kumar Jain after being re-elected as NITRA chairman at the 41st annual general meeting (AGM) of the organisation recently.

NITRA will also prioritise other services like technical training, training and testing, Jain said.

The AGM also re-elected SK Kapoor, managing director of Surya Processors (P) Ltd and Dinesh Nolkha, managing director and a co-founder of Nitin Spinners Ltd as deputy chairman and vice chairman of NITRA for the year 2017-18.

The AGM was followed by NITRA's 14th convocation ceremony where a total of 150 students were awarded certificates and medals. Two useful instruments- Electronic drape meter and Fabric smoothness tester developed by the scientists of NITRA, were inaugrated.

Addressing the gathering, Sanjay Kumar Jain praised training offered by NITRA and advised the young students to be hard working and to be quick learners.

NITRA director general Arindam Basu informed that the organisation has 2,600 pass outs working in more than 100 renowed apparel or textiles exports companies. He also mentioned that NITRA offers many industry oriented programmes on regular and distance learning modes, covering areas such as garment manufacturing, designing, merchandising and quality assurance.
