Top Indian official calls for increased fibre production
Fibre production in India should match the projected doubled production of textile and clothing products by 2025, according to the country’s textile commissioner Kavita Gupta, who inaugurated the regional office of the Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council in the premises of Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA) in Coimbatore last week.

With an apparel and textile industry revenue target worth $300 billion by 2025 and India’s cotton and synthetic fibre production at 6.5 billion kg and 2.5 billion kg respectively now, the country needs around 9 billion kg of synthetic fibre to meet the target, she said.

Cotton and synthetic fibres should go hand-in-hand, several newspapers in south India quoted her as saying.

About 2.5 lakh new jobs have been created in the garments and made-ups sector since the government announced a relief package for them in June 2016, she said.

The readymade garment industry is the largest contributor to the country’s textile exports and employs about 12 million persons now. (DS)
