Speaking at the curtain raiser event, Gangwar said that technical textiles can play an important role in the nation’s social and economic fronts. Gangwar recalled the launch of Rs 427 crores government scheme to promote usage of geotechnical textiles in the Northeastern region of India, in March 2015. He said that this scheme would provide support for use of geotextiles in road construction, slope stabilization and water reservoirs. He expressed satisfaction at the completion of the construction of the airport access road at Imphal, using geotextiles. He said that approval has been given for 13 water reservoir projects in Manipur and Tripura, and for two projects in road construction and slope stabilization in the two states, all employing geotextiles.

The minister also said that the Technology Mission on Technical Textiles (TMTT) has been extended for two years, i.e., for 2015 -2016 and 2016 2017. Eight Centres of Excellence have been set up under the scheme, where facilities for testing, R&D and skill development in technical textiles are being set up. Gangwar said that TMTT Mission II provides support in the areas such as export market development of technical textiles, new business start-ups, contract research and market development support for sale to institutional buyers, among others. He noted that a special focus has been given to technical textiles, under Amended TUFS; a capital subsidy of 15 per cent has been provided for technical textile machinery under the amended scheme, said the Minister.
