Kerala, which has been struggling to find its way in the textile industry, is now getting special status as a state under the new guidelines.
The Home Textiles Inspection and Promotion Authority (HSTA) of Kerala is set to take over the inspection and promotion of the textile industries.
Under the new framework, HSTA is also set to be given a new responsibility under the Prevention of Loss of Property Act.
Under this act, a company or a body can be declared an importer of cotton goods, or a trader or manufacturer, if it is found that the cotton product is lost or stolen.
This has been done by setting up a register of loss of property or a record of loss.HSTAB is expected to make a report within two weeks to the government and to the Ministry of Industrial Policy and Promotion.
This report will be submitted to the Union cabinet.
Kerala was first designated a state in 2008.
Kerala became a state last year.
Hindi is spoken in about 70 per cent of the country, but there are a lot of people who speak Tamil.
This is a major issue for the textile sector.
The textile industry is a small part of the economy in Kerala.
In 2016-17, the textile exports grew by only about $6 million, according to the State Comptroller and Auditor General.
