Various steps have also been taken to promote handlooms such as collaboration with approved e-commerce entities to promote e-marketing of handloom products and e-Dhaga for sale of yarn among others. Bunkar Mitra handloom helpline has also been launched to assist weavers.
"Enhanced service delivery to citizens and industry has been among the core objectives of our government. Our focus has been on inclusive growth and on reforms for ensuring transparency. Under the visionary leadership of the Prime Minister, several key initiatives were launched in the textile sector during the last three years. These initiatives have been successful in bringing about sustainable development, exponential growth of handcrafted goods, and served not only to keep the textile legacy and heritage alive, but also in increasing the income of weavers and craftsmen. The initiatives in the sector were also directed at generating employment and strengthening the entire textile sector value chain," said Union textiles minister, Smriti Irani.
Support has also been offered for textile processing and steps were taken to promote organised textile industry in the North East region. The ministry of textiles is also working towards the development of textile infrastructure. The integrated Skill Development Scheme has also been implemented to make a difference through skilling.
The ministry has also taken steps to promote technical textiles and launched a new scheme (outlay Rs 427 crore) at Imphal. Close to 34 projects with an outlay of Rs 99.66 crore have also been sanctioned under GeoTech textiles.
"The textiles sector in India contributes to the livelihoods of a large number of people including those living in rural India, specially women. During the last three years, under the guidance of the Prime Minister, the ministry of textiles has taken several measures such as technology upgradation, infrastructure development and welfare of workers, weavers and artisans for participative and inclusive development in the textile sector," said Ajay Tamta, minister of state for textiles.
