As per available information, 29 number of cotton / man-made fibre textile (Non-SSI) mills were closed in the country during the last two years and current year as on 31.05.2014. The year-wise and State-wise details are given in Annexure-I.

As per the report received from Regional office of the Textile Commissioner, the main reason for closure of mills is financial problem including other reasons such as strike/labour problem, lock-out, etc.

There is no study in the knowledge of Government on the impact on the production of textile items due to closure of mills. There has been overall growth in the textiles sector in terms of production of textile items and export during the year 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 (Apr-May). The details of growth in production of textile items and export are given in Annexure-I.

In order to encourage and boost textile industry in the country, Government has launched various policy initiatives and schemes, viz., Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS), Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP), Scheme for Development of Technical Textiles, Integrated Skill Development Scheme (ISDS), Schemes for the Development of Powerloom Sector, etc.
