The Textiles Minister inaugurated the TEXPROCIL Awards Function which celebrated the achievements of textile industrialists. Smriti Zubin Irani, Textile Minister suggested that inta-industry problems should be solved at industry level only without the involvement of ministry. She also urged TEXPROCIL and CCI and Skill development ministry to pursue skilling farmers for mechanised farming.
TEXPROCIL, the first Export Promotion Council set up in India in 1954 and responsible for promoting exports of cotton textile celebrated the achievements of its member exporters at the Annual Awards function. The Council is a one point stop for those who wish to source textiles from India. It has 3000 members who are engaged in the exports of cotton textiles including yarns, fabrics and home textiles including made ups.
Every year the Council recognises the role played by exporters by giving out awards in different categories. This year, the Council distributed 58 awards in 32 different categories, including the coveted Platinum trophy for the highest global exports. Recognising the role played by MSME units in India and given that the growth of MSMEs is one of the many thrust areas of the government, TEXPROCIL has also instituted an Award for the highest employment generated by MSME Units which went to Ken Enterprises Pvt Ltd and Gupta International.
