SITRA, Isro, DRDO join hands to better TT

The South India Textile Research Association (SITRA) is working closely with the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) and the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to come up with better products in technical textile.

Textile commissioner Kavita Gupta, while speaking at the inauguration of the diamond jubilee celebrations of SITRA, said spinning mills were encouraged to get into technical textiles and medical textiles to enjoy more opportunities.

Gupta said SITRA is constantly trying to find easier technology to manufacture medical and technical textiles. “We see a lot of scope in manufacturing products like elastic adhesive bandage, paraffin guaze dressing, elastic surgical adhesive tape and absorbent cotton,” she said.

Kavita said this was the sunset industry and was the focus of the Ministry of Textiles. She also said they were doing a lot of research to improve machinery and find technologies to produce products for those specific lines.

Union textile minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar, the chief guest for the function, praised SITRA’s contribution to the industry. “The fact that this institution has lasted 60 years and had helped over 250 spinning mills in the region is a laudable fact,” he said.
