As per Mr. Santosh Gangwar, the Union Textiles Minister, it is highly likely that the government may introduce a new textile policy in April. This policy will plausibly target the growth of the industry for the coming 10 years and will look forward to achieving a whopping target of over $300 billion in textile exports and lead to the creation of over 35 million employment opportunities, thus strengthening the industry even further. Mr.Gangwar, present at the Make in India Week, quoted “The long-awaited National Textile Policy is nearing finalisation and is likely to be issued before the end of April 2016”. He said that talks and consultations with the stakeholders are going on and was quite confident about the policy to be released in the budget session. According to him, the policy will embrace all concerns pertaining to various aspects including labour reforms, investments in the sector, and provision of a road map for further developments in the same. The policy is also slated to look into the concerns raised by the skilled workforce of the industry.
