TEXTILES AND GARMENTS

The Indian textile industry exhibits rich cultural heritage of India with wide variety of fabrics, techniques and hues that reflect the diverse set of people and traditions across the country. One of the oldest industries in India, it covers an extensive spectrum of segments, from hand woven/hand-spun, unorganized segment on one end to capital and technology intensive organized segment on the other. India is the largest producer of Jute in the world and is the second largest producer of silk and cotton globally.

This sector offers tremendous employment opportunities for people, especially in the rural regions. The textile sector in India accounts for 10% of the country’s manufacturing production, 5% of India’s GDP, and 13% of India’s exports earnings. Textile and apparel sector is the second largest employment provider in the country employing nearly 51 million people directly and 68 million people indirectly in 2015-16.

Efforts are being made to restore glory of cottage based traditional sectors like handlooms, handicrafts, jute and wool through an integrated approach covering entire value chain.

To provide encouragement to textile manufactures and farmers of raw materials, the government has been providing incentives like minimum support price to cotton farmers, upgrading the technology for handloom weavers and providing centres for trade facilitation. The emphasis on the handloom brand, such as through the National Handloom Day and launch of the ‘India Handloom Brand,’ has been pivotal in reviving the sector, making it technology driven, and positioning it in mainstream fashion. This is encouraging the youth to wear more handloom products, hence increasing the market reach for these products.

The power-loom industry is also growing, with incentives like financial assistance for upgrading the technology. Funds up to 50% of the cost of the up gradation are being provided by the Government.
