Exports of Jute products and its diversified items grew by 24 per cent in the last five years, according to textiles minister.

Minister has been suggesting to the Jute industry to reduce its dependence on government orders and go for product diversification, which would in turn boost exports.

Textiles Secretary said the Ministry has been trying to find ways and means to enhance income of weavers and also to connect them with garment manufacturers to increase their margins.

Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) had recently approved 100 per cent of the food grains and 20 per cent of the sugar to be mandatorily packed in Jute bags thereby expanding the scope of Jute Packaging Material (JPM) Act, 1987, which was brought in to protect the interest of the Jute sector from the plastic packaging segment.
