Orissa takes steps to boost hand­loom sec­tor

Apparel Online - - Handloom Update -

Odisha Govern­ment has asked the Hand­looms, Textiles and Hand­i­crafts Depart­ment of the state to speed up the process of set­ting up an Ap­parel In­cu­ba­tion Cen­tre at NIFT, Bhubaneswar. The 300-ma­chine Ap­parel In­cu­ba­tion Cen­tre was ap­proved two years back. Once op­er­a­tional, it will pro­mote en­trepreneur­ship in the gar­ment sec­tor and cre­ate over 600 jobs. The Depart­ment has been asked to pro­vide all the re­quired help to NIFT to make the Ap­parel In­cu­ba­tion Cen­tre a re­al­ity. Ad­di­tion­ally, the Govern­ment will es­tab­lish a Yarn Bank in the state to pro­vide raw ma­te­rial at a rea­son­able price to the weavers and pow­er­loom cen­tres.
