 The Role Of Textile Ministry In Promoting the Textile Sector

14 June 2022, Mumbai:

The Indian textile industry plays a significant role in the country's economy. Apart from providing one of life's most basic requirements, the textiles sector also plays a vital role in the country's industrial production, employment generation, and export revenues.

It accounts for around 14% of the industrial output, 4% of GDP, and 17% of the country's export revenues. Over 35 million people are directly employed as a result of it. After agriculture, the textiles industry is the second largest employer. As a result, the expansion and overall development of this business directly impact the nation's economy.

The Indian textile industry's distinctive structure stems from a heritage of tax, labor, and other regulatory laws that supported small-scale, labor-intensive businesses while discriminating against larger-scale, capital-intensive companies.

The structure is also attributable to India's historical focus on fulfilling the requirements of its native consumers, mostly low-income, rather than the global market.

Significant gains in technical efficiency and international competitiveness have resulted from policy reforms that began in the 1980s and continued into the 1990s, particularly in the spinning sector.

However, more reforms are still needed to improve India's weaving, fabric finishing, and clothing industries' efficiency and competitiveness.
