India’s total raw silk production increased by 10.52 percent in the 2019 financial year as the government continues to promote the textile, the Union Minister for Textiles Smriti Irani told the Lok Sabha.


Textiles Minister Smriti Irani said Indian silk production is up


"The total raw silk production in the country increased by 10.52 percent (35,261 MT) during 2018 to 19 over the previous year 2017 to 18 (31,906 MT)," said Irani during Question Hour at the Lok Sabha on Friday, as reported by the Press Trust of India. A key component of the government’s “Make in India” campaign to increase domestic production has been textiles and so Irani’s news bodes well for the continuation of the programme. 

Irani said that the Ministry of Textiles’ Central Silk Board is working to encourage the production and export of silk textiles. One way the organisation is doing this is through its Central Sector Scheme “Silk Samagra” which focuses on improving the quality and production of Indian silk in order to reduce silk imports to India. Irani said that the programme has now extended its assistance to sericulture stakeholders for work such as irrigation, incubation facilities, constructing rearing houses for silk, and improving mulberry varieties among other tasks. 

The Minister also said that the provisional total raw silk production of 35,261 MT was comprised of 71.5 percent mulberry, 19.4 percent eri, 8.4 percent tussar, and 0.7 percent muga silk. The Ministry aims to continue to increase silk production in India along with handloom textiles.
