[ Technical Textiles - Calling New Textile & Home Ministers,Govt of India.]

A Governament of India Project in " Technical Textiles " for our Defense Forces.

Military Textiles:- Military uniforms face a complex set of challenges. They must provide protection, durability and comfort in a wide range of hostile environments.Research on how military clothing can best meet soldiers' need is Urgent.
Already we have research done in many areas like,damage resistance, comfort, sweat management, cold-weather conditions and the integration of high-tech materials into uniforms.Also included are such as high-performance ballistic fibres, textiles for chemical and biological protection, camouflage materials and military fabrics for flame protection.The use of non-woven fabrics and new coatings for military applications.
With researching and manufacturing military textiles, as well as in the wider area of textiles for protection,India needs a Technical Textile College and Research Institute integrated with a Complex of Technical Textile Mill.
The Minister of Textiles must immediately hand over the newly planned Textile Mill " FINLAY MILLS " at Achalpur,Maharastra to the highly reputed textile research association:-
THE BOMBAY TEXTILE RESEARCH ASSOCIATION
and the Home minister should arrange with DRDO and the Textile Minister with NTC the needs of the Defense Ministry for Military Textiles for all their needs in Technical Textiles to be jointly taken by DRDO & BTRA in setting up the New FINLAY MILLS under construction and develop this also,in to a International Technical Textile College and Research Institute.Since we have none at present and perhaps no plan in near future.This project will be a feather in the caps of both the ministers who are born in the Textile State of South India.

[ Research in Technical Textiles in India.]

We do have around half a dozen Textile Research Associations in various States in India.They do publish their research papers in all areas of Cotton,Woolen,Silk,Jute,Man Made Fibers,All operations in all areas of Spinning,Weaving,Fabric Processing,Knitting,Fabric Printing and accessories needed in the complete operations of the Textile Mills.


These Research Associations individually and in association organize conferences yearly at their centers alternately.Many Technologists,Mill Owners and all others connected with the working of the Textile Mills participate in these conferences.


Some of the Researches are done in their own pilot plants and also in select mills.Most of these Researches are in some areas a replica of the Researches done else where with minor changes and few are indeed original in use in the Industry.



How Many have taken Patents for their Research.



E-Mail's have been sent to all the Research Associations to get the information.



It's indeed a big help by "BOMBAY TEXTILE RESEARCH ASSOCIATION"
to be the first Research Association to have permitted to republish
any Research Conducted by them in Technical Textiles to be republished in this Blog.

The recession and the textile industry
This is a guest post for Mr.S K G Rao
through an
IndiForum activity where blogger can
guest blog on other blogs.
The recession seems to have hit the
Textile Industry quite hard.
There has been a
huge talk about lay offs in
the past few
months mainly in India and China.
However, when I really
think about it
the news is not as scary
as the newspapers say.

Let me explain.

Especially in India,
the textile industry
is the second largest
job provider next
to Agriculture.
If you see it that way
you know that the
largest industries are
the ones that will show
a lot more suffering
and lost due to the mass.
However, clothing is a
basic and essential
part of every human
being’s life these days.
It is not exactly like
the dark ages you know.
And recession or no
recession people will always
buy basic necessities
like food, clothing,
medicines, etc.
So why doest’t the clothing
industry pick up?
You see, it is also
important to know that,
during tough economic
conditions such as
being portrayed right
now it is also
necessary to find
ways to produce at
lesser costs and hence
ultimately reduce
the burden on the consumers.
This has to
be a continuous process
right from
picking the cotton
to the middle men
to the manufacturers
to the retails.
There are quite a
few examples on the
Internet and from
entrepreneurs around
you who can tell how
they got to be
bigger than what
they started with during
tough times. Because
they would have
found ways to
innovate and help through
the tough times by easing
the burden
on the consumers.
I am sure
there are entrepreneurs
around you who have
already thought
of ways to do so.
I do hope so.
