A leading Indian textile body said that the Government must put a package of reforms into place if it wants the industry to meet the targets set by the National Textile Policy. The Indian Spinners Association has called for several measures to be put in place, primarily a scheme to scrap old and obsolete spindles and looms. It pointed out that the Chinese Government is to spend $174m over three years in a bid to eliminate 10 million spindles. The body estimates that there are between 11 and 13 million out of date spindles in India.
