    Ministry of Textiles



    TECHNICAL TEXTILES

    Technical textiles are textile materials and products used for their technical performance and functional properties. Technical textiles are an important part of the textile industry and its potential is still largely untapped in India. With increase in disposable income, the consumption of technical textiles is expected to increase. The Working Group for the
    Eleventh Five Year Plan has estimated the market size of technical textiles to increase from Rs.26077 crore in 2006-07 to Rs. 52200 crore in 2011-12 without any regulatory framework and to Rs.74758 crore with regulatory framework. The Scheme for Growth and Development of Technical Textiles (SGDTT) has been designed to promote indigenous manufacture of technical textile to exploit the global opportunities and cater to the domestic demand. The scheme encompasses three components i.) baseline survey to build the database of technical textile industry, ii) setting up of centers of excellence and iii) creation of awareness among the entrepreneurs. Office of the Textiles Commissioner, Mumbai is monitoring the scheme.

    The Technical Textile Industry is predominantly Synthetic Fibre/Yarn based. The Excise duty of Synthetic Fibre/Yarn was reduced from 16% to 8% in the 2007-08 budget.

    Ministry of Textiles has created institutional mechanism in terms of two committees to remove the hindrances in the growth of technical textiles. One is high level committee, i.e., Inter Ministerial Steering Committee (IMSC) under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Textiles) with representation from user industries and the second committee is Steering Committee on Growth and Development of Technical Textiles (SCGDTT) to monitor and review the growth of the technical textile industry and also activities of centers of excellence. The importance of Technical Textiles was also discussed in the High Level Committee on Manufacturing (HLCM) chaired by the Hon’ble Prime Minister on 21st June, 2007. The HLCM decided that the recommendations of the expert Committee report, which is already available, would be implemented on a priority basis.

    The machinery for manufacture of technical textiles is covered under TUFS. In the modified scheme of TUFS, it is proposed to provide incremental benefit to the technical textile manufacturers in terms of 10 percent capital subsidy to the identified technical textiles machinery.

    The Ministry of Textiles is also proposing to encourage setting up of training institutes for technical textiles on Public Private Partnership (PPP) basis. The training institute will meet the requirement of the quality manpower of the indigenous technical textile manufacturers.
