For the first time in the history of Indian textile and clothing industry, an innovation contest was organised jointly by Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) in association with Northern India Textile Research Association (NITRA). Sanjay K Jain, chairman CITI, shared his thoughts on how the idea of organising an Innovation Contest came and in fact it was first time in India that such a contest is organised for innovations in the textile sector.
R Pothiraj received the first prize for his innovation on '32 per cent Reduction in Energy Consumption in Running Airjet Looms', Dhivagar got second prize and Raj Kumar got third prize for their innovations in 'Zero Defect of Spandex Miss Plating in Knitted Fabric' and 'Computerised Vertical Embroidery Machine', respectively.
InnoTex promoted the ideas of innovators by enabling them to showcase their talent to the industry leaders and get instant recognition. The contest also bridged the gap between innovators and the end-user industry and guided the researchers about the actual demand of the industry in these areas. (RR)
