Keeping in view the various changes in the textile industry on the domestic and international fronts and the need for a road map for the textile & apparel industry, Ministry of Textiles had initiated the process of reviewing the National Textile Policy, 2000.

The draft Vision, Strategy and Action Plan has been submitted by the Chairman after a detailed process of stakeholder consultations across the entire value chain. 
 
Considering the recommendations and feedback received during various consultation meetings, the Expert Committee identified basic concerns in textiles sector and identified the national priorities in the form of a Vision & Strategy and the Action Plan for attaining the targets set out in the Vision for exports, investment and employment by the year 2024-25. 
 
The Vision projects Indian textile and apparel exports to grow from US $ 39 billion at present to US $ 300 billion by the year 2024-25.
