Indian Texpreneurs Federation (ITF) has appealed to all brands and retail chains operating in India to source their requirements from within the country instead of importing. ITF’s appeal comes in the wake of a huge jump in import of readymade garments from Bangladesh. “The 53 per cent increase in Bangladesh’s overall exports to India between July, 2018 and April, 2019 is disheartening. While the government is making best possible efforts to promote ‘Make in India’, ‘Skill India’ and incentivising job creation, western retailers having outlets in India and Indian local brands seem to be sourcing their goods from Bangladesh. Indian textile clusters can serve better, source the needs of both western and Indian brands both in terms of quality and competitive pricing,” said ITF Convenor Prabhu Dhamodharan. He further pointed out that the products sourced from within were far better than those sourced from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka or Indonesia.
