Now our production is almost 1.5 times more compared to our previous record with the same infrastructure.” He further adds that clients of the company are happy with these efforts.

While the textile sector’s share in overall Indian exports stands at 11 per cent, the total exported goods have remained stagnant at US $ 40 billion since fiscal 2015-2016. However, with an increasing focus on self-reliance, India is well on its way to increasing its share of global trade in textiles,” concludes Shantanu.
