Telangana’s Chief Minister has announced a new Telangana Textile and Apparel Policy. He said the aim was to provide the best price to farmers as well as employment to jobless youth. The State government has approached leading textile industries in the country to set up their units in the State. To develop weavers as owners, the government has come up with the ‘Worker to Owner” scheme and is constructing 400 sheds in Apparel Park.
KT Rama Rao said the State government will initiate steps to establish a yarn depot in Sircilla after discussing the issue with owners of spinning mills in the cotton industry. The Minister said weavers in the State were doing quality work and assured them remunerative prices for their work. He said production of quality Bathukamma sarees was being carried out within the time frame.
The weavers informed the Minister that they were facing difficulties to run looms as several designs were introduced in the manufacture of Bathukamma saree this time around. They requested the Minister to enhance the price of a metre cloth to Rs 1.50. Advising looms owners to solve problems in the textile park, Rama Rao informed them to supply power through the solar system.
