Indian textiles secretary Ravi Capoor recently urged the textile industry in Tamil Nadu to diversify into the polyester segment to boost exports. He was addressing a meeting with the office bearers of 48 textile associations of South India organised by the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) in Coimbatore. He also advised the Tiruppur knitwear cluster to brand its products in a sustainable manner to fetch more margin globally.

Appreciating the sustainable initiatives taken at Tiruppur and Coimbatore by implementing zero liquid discharge to protect the environment—predominantly using non-conventional energy to avoid carbon food print—and compliance of various labour and social statutes, Capoor assured all necessary government support to promote the brands from the Tirupur cluster.

The government would address all structural issues in its new National Textile Policy that might be announced in a couple of months by making the basic raw materials available at global prices, encouraging scale of operation by developing 10 mega textile parks closer to ports, giving plug and play facilities, including the necessary safeguard measures in the labour laws, a CITI press release quoted him as saying.
