Abstract:

Textile enterprises are spread across the length and breadth of India and they are a major employer in the Indian manufacturing sector.  The paper examines the importance of the textile enterprises in India based on statistics and the initiatives undertaken by the government. This research paper explores the potential of the textile industry and extensive spread of textile enterprises among various states based on a cross state analysis of the types of activities undertaken by the textile manufacturing sector and the concentration of the different types of manufacturing among states based on National Sample Survey conducted by the Ministry of Statistics and Planning, Government of India.  The paper also highlights the growth drivers for the textile industry which can make the industry more receptive to the changing demand scenario to boost growth prospects. The textile sector is unevenly spread across the country and most of the states are dependent on the traditional knowledge of the weavers and the traditional crafts of the region in particular for traditional enterprises in the informal economy.. The government has been working hard to bolster the traditional crafts but the problems at the grassroots level are often overlooked.
