UP Singh, Secretary, Ministry of Textiles has said that standards provide a facilitating framework for technical textiles’ manufacturers in India.

Continuous adoption and upgradation of the standards for each product category and segment will have a positive impact on the consumption of technical textile products in India, he further emphasised.

Addressing the 5th National Conclave on Standards for Technical Textiles, Building Standards for India@2047, organised by the Ministry of Textiles in partnership with Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), he emphasised that development and adoption of Indian standards for high-end Technical Textiles is the need of the hour.

The event saw discussion on standards and regulations covering different areas of Technical Textiles including ProTech & Specialty Fibres, AgroTech & MediTech, GeoTech & BuidTech, MobilTech, Composites and InduTech.

300 representatives including Officials and Representatives from Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), Indian Army, Indian Navy, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Line Ministries and Departments of the Central Government, State Governments and eminent industrialists from India attended through hybrid mode (physical and virtual).

It’s a collaborative approach between MOT, Bureau of Indian Standards, Research Organizations, Industry and Academia to work together closely in identification of gaps and work towards harmonisation of Indian technical textile standards with the global standards.

Government will endeavour to provide all the needed support to promote Indian technical textiles sector across the world.

Lt. Gen. Rajeev Chaudhry, VSM, DG, Border Roads Organisation (BRO) emphasised on the active role of BRO in driving the wide usage of Geo-textiles products including Geogrid, Geocells, Geofabrics and Geo drains across different road construction projects at borders, mountains and rain infested areas of India.

He further added that the BRO has collaborated with industry and academia for development of new material & technology solutions. Thus, standardisation of these products plays an important role in further increasing the usage, going forward.

Rajeev Sharma, Deputy DG (Standardisation) BIS highlighted that over 500 standards have already been formulated for technical textile products by BIS in India since 2011 and further 40+ standards are being developed in close coordination with Ministry of Textiles, Industries and other Line Ministries and Departments.

BIS has undertaken several initiatives to fast-track the formulation and harmonisation of standards for technical textiles including Formation of specialised committee for technical textiles, pre-membership in ISO Technical Committee, digitisation of standardisation activity, action-research-based approach, free of cost indigenous standards information and MoUs with eminent institutes have been the focused initiatives undertaken by BIS towards building technical textiles standards in India, he further added.

Rajinder Gupta, Chair, FICCI Textiles Committee & Chairman, Trident Ltd., said that technology is changing rapidly and technical textiles with their wide applications can play a crucial role in country’s transformation in next 25 years.
