Industries Minister KT Rama Rao urged the Centre to sanction a Mega Powerloom Cluster (MPC) at Sircilla under the Comprehensive Powerloom Cluster Development Scheme (CPCDS). However, heexpressed disappointment over the Telangana State not receiving any significant support related to the Handloom and Textiles sector from the Union Government.
“I would like to reiterate that the development of Telangana translates to the development of our country,” he said.

In a letter to Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal,  Industries Minister and Sircilla MLA KT Rama Rao recalled that he had earlier written seven letters (on different dates) to the Union Government requesting for the Cluster at Sircilla. In spite of repeated reminders by way of letters and personal meetings regarding the issue, unfortunately no action was taken by the Union government.

The Minister explained that Sircilla has been a major hub of Handloom and Textiles activity for several decades now. The State government had initiated several measures to ensure the weaver community of this town finds gainful employment. The town has the necessary ecosystem and trained manpower required to set up a Mega Powerloom cluster.

He also mentioned that the Telangana government has initiated several measures to ensure the all round development of Handloom and Textiles sector and also the well-being of the weaver community. 

“These flagship initiatives including 40 per cent Input Subsidy Linked Wage Compensation Scheme, Thrift Fund to Handloom/Powerloom Weavers, providing continuous work to Powerloom workers, have resulted in revival of this industry with major increase in earnings/wages,” he added. He stated that the Union government had also appreciated these measures and initiatives on various occasions.
