Government plans to open a facilitation centre for textiles and handloom industry with state-of-the-art facilities including a laboratory in Panipat to support entrepreneurs and weavers. The announcement was made by Union Minister for textiles Smriti Irani at a road-show of ‘Textiles India-2017. The handloom industry is currently valued at Rs 37,000 crore.

The textiles industry had grown by up to 20 per cent in the last four to five years, Irani said, according to media reports.

The handloom industry, in terms of both domestic industry and exports, is valued at Rs 37,000 crore, the minister said.

The entrepreneurs should also participate in another ‘Textiles India-2017’ event to be organised in Gandhinagar, Gujarat during June 30-July 2, 2017. The event will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Irani said.

The minister said that the suggestions of entrepreneurs regarding local issues in the state should be heard and deliberated upon by Haryana’s Transport Minister Krishan Lal Panwar and Karnal MP Ashwini Chopra. There should be discussions with Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on the issues for solutions, according to the reports.

Panwar said that suggestions submitted by industrial organisations for improvement of facilities and resolving local issues would be given due consideration by the state government. Haryana had implemented new enterprises promotion to encourage setting up of more industries and provide them with the best facilities. Panipat was recognised all over the world for its handloom industry. (SV)
