the consumer. Our industry plays a major role in beautifying the world...! Fashion inspired from macro & micro economic trends, nature, human behaviour, social trends, etc. Taking the inspiration, few global companies forecast the trends of colour, pattern, design etc putting a binocular for 2-3 years ahead with reference to season / environment which is adopted by top FMCG, Cosmetic & Apparel brands. India, being multi cultural social trends, we do not follow international seasons like autumn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; winter or spring â&#x20AC;&#x201C; summer. Indian apparel market has seasons like: Festive season (July- November), Wedding season (November â&#x20AC;&#x201C; February), Holiday Season/ Pre School purchase (March- June). Indian apparel purchase is more of the Event purchase than the Environment / Climatic condition purchase..!!! #

Pre Budget Expectations : ;;<=> ?@:@<=Q ]  q{|}{| ~|Â&#x20AC;Â Â&#x201A;Â&#x192;} â&#x20AC;&#x153;Special package for textile industry should be considered in the budget. Textile industry is one of the largest employers in India and contributes about ?Â&#x201E;Â&#x2020;      Â&#x201E;Â&#x2020;   Â&#x2021;~[

and gives direct employment to around 45 million work force. The industry has gone     Â&#x2C6;     zation and needs special attention in the budget. Introduction of GST, reduction of interest rates in parity with the international money market, tax rationalization measures, and incentives for investments in innovation and infrastructure are few of the many demands from the textile industry for the upcoming budget. It should also address concerns related to skilled workforce, labour law reforms, attracting investments in the textile sector and providing a future road map for the textiles and clothing industry. Incentives should also be considered for training workforce.

A major challenge for textile industry is that it is highly capital and labour intensive sector and payback period is quite long which is many a times a big constraint for new investment in the sector. Further the government has set a target to create another 30 million more jobs in the industry over the next three years which is possible only if special incentive schemes for new investment in textile sector are announced. Thanks to TUFS, India has made strong strides in the fabric manufacturing sector but garmenting has still not been taken up, primarily due to labour laws and it needs special attention for the success of Make in India, an initiative launched by Government of India under leadership of the Honorable [  X

years or so to enable companies to avail %   

Corporate income tax needs to be lowered to 28% in the upcoming budget and lowering it further to 25% in coming years as promised by FM.

Exports are another challenge and industry is well below its targets. We want  

     

which can boost our exports as India has the potential to become one of the biggest exporters in the world.

The Rs 6,000 crore package announced in 2016 for textiles and apparel sector was a step in the right direction but the industry needs lot of reforms for the revival of the growth.

Cotton-based textile goods accounted for almost 90 percent of Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total textile exports of about $40 billion in 2015-16 and if supported well can take the industry to new heights.

The neighboring countries are having duty advantage for exports to the US and EU market on selective basis. Insertion of Â&#x2039;  [ [   Â?Â&#x2039;[[Â&#x2018; " Â&#x152;# 

further increased the challenges for Indian textiles in the long term. Coupled with the recent announcement of the newly elected president of the US, there are fairly good chances for protection of select countries for exports to the US which happens to be the second largest importer of Indian textiles. And therefore, the GoI should accelerate arrangement with EU market economies to provide concessional imports into these territories to maintain competitiveness of the Indian exports. The political disadvantage to India needs be compensated in terms of money through additional ben

the largest employment generator for the national economy. Industry also needs to upgrade its technology to meet world standards. The industry, especially the micro, small and medium enterprise sector, does not have access to capital to upgrade technology on its own. A fund should be set up for Technology Upgradation & Innovation and support may be extended to the companies at lower rate of interest. This will help industry in improving quality of output and become more competitive.â&#x20AC;?

mobile app platform for people - particularly women - to sell their clothes online. Explaining how the app works, Narahari says users simply need to click a picture of the product and put a price on it to get it listed on the platform. However, when it comes to pre-owned, lifestyle goods in India, startups like Elanic need to jump over two major hurdles - lack of trust and transactional hassles. Educating people about new concepts like reusing clothes is also not easy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There could be lack of trust between buyers and sellers regarding an item since there is no measure of standard and quality when it comes to pre-owned goods,â&#x20AC;? says Narahari. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To counter this, we came to understand that trust is built better between members of a community. So we opened up communication channels between buyers and sellers through private chat and public comments,â&#x20AC;? he adds. Â&#x201A;   q

Branding has many stages to follow for the existing brands as well as creating your own new brand or co-opting other brands. Textiles brands have done this successfully in global marketsbut, when it comes to India, it has yetnot taken right shape and speed. The fabric which is beingprocessed by Indian entrepreneurs is always of good quality only because they get export quality raw material.If we want to market our fabric,the fabric quality needs to be consistently of good quality produced by using good technology which will not have any deviations in any aspects.

We need to have the inspection done at each and every stage of production facility as well as at the customers placeso that we can get a good feedback and the customer would always stay happy. So that we can improve our systems and existing production parameters in order to meet customer demands. We need to pay visits to the customer facilities to understand whether the fabric which is been supplied by us is of good quality, whether it is performing as per the requirements, whether the sewing operations is happening properly, whether there is any problem during cutting operations or not, etc. such things needs to be studied so that we can establish our fabric brand. One thing is to be kept in mind when we are thinking of doing very good marketing or establishing ourselves in the business for a brand we need to be cost competitive as well as system oriented along with complete professional approach in production, maintenance, quality, after sales service as well as complete marketing process.

While statistics on online shopping are readily available, I wish to dwell on two behavioral patterns of the internet-enabled or the mobile-assisted shopper- Showrooming and Webrooming.

This works typically when the search is to be narrowed done from a wide range of options, which can be achieved by the convenience of online reach.

One of the most complex questions is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;How to cater to the demand of food and other items for ever increasing population. First logical solution is to control the population growth rate, which will ultimately reduce the gap between demand and supply and reduce the impact of the crisis. But considering limitations of cultural, geographical and political boundaries; the solution is very complex.

Solutions to modify the way we produce goods are already being put to test around the world. Tomorrow, we may be able to build factories, in the developing world as much as in the developed world, which can adapt to local characteristics of the products for local requirement, which will belong in a sustainable supply chain and have less of an impact on the environment. Using which solutions? Are these sustainable? And can the experiments being carried out today give us an insight into the factories of the future? Here are some â&#x20AC;&#x153;sutraâ&#x20AC;? which will enable the above ultimate goal.

Companies that source manufactured goods from China do so primarily because of the attractive production costs. Now, however, cost advantages are harder to come by. Companies have reached a point at which there is little cost remaining to be squeezed out of the on-ocean shipping process. Hence, sooner or later, it is important to invent and invest to invent on sustainable technologies which will help the production costs in long run.

Market insiders said the weavers incurred losses amounting to millions of rupees in the last two months post demonetization, and it will take years for the situation to become normal and back on track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The industry has been thrown behind by many years due to demonetizationâ&#x20AC;?, Nehal Ansari said. Interestingly, this is the season which normally sees a huge demand of cotton fabrics in the market. But, even as the industry struggled to come out of the shock of demonetization, shortage of cotton yarn forced the industry in reverse gear once again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the period when fresh cotton comes in the market and prices are normally between 32,000 to 35,000 per candy of 355 kgs. But, today the cotton despite good output is selling at 43,000 to 45,000 per candy. As a result, cotton yarn prices are skyrocketing and weavers are unable to match the price of their fabrics with the one in the marketâ&#x20AC;?, Sharique Zubairi of Suhana Textiles, Malegaon said.
