Kerala's NTC Textile Mills after Pendamic.[ Textile ministry clears 20 technical textile projects in specialty fibres and geotextiles.]

⁻⁰

Textile ministry clears 20 technical textile projects in specialty fibres and geotextiles.

 

Ministry of textiles on Monday cleared 20 strategic research projects worth Rs30 crore in the areas of specialty fibres and geotextiles.  These research projects fall  under the flagship programme ‘National Technical Textiles Mission.’ 

Amongst the 20 research projects, 16 projects relate to specialty fibres, which in turn include 5 projects in healthcare, 4 projects in industrial and protective, 3 projects in energy storage, 3 projects in textile waste recycling, 1 in agriculture and 4 projects in geotextiles (infrastructure).
Various leading Indian institutes, centres of excellence and government organizations, including IITs, DRDO, BTRA, among others participated in the session. These projects are key to the development of Indian economy and a step in the direction of Atmanirbhar Bharat, especially in the healthcare, industrial and protective, energy storage, textile waste recycling, agriculture and infrastructure.
“Industry and academia connect is essential for the growth of research and development in the application areas of technical textiles in India. Building convergence with academicians, scientists and researchers is the need of the hour,” union  minister of textiles Piyush Goyal said while addressing the scientists and technologists. 
Goyal also highlighted the need to focus on high value added products and building a structure of brainstorming around problem statements. In addition, Inter-ministerial synergy is required for attracting mega research projects in the country.
The textile ministry had, on 26 March 2021, cleared 11 research projects worth Rs78.60 crore.

Fabric for common man is not made in any of NTC Mills in Kerala's State.

God's Own Country Kerala, a land so beautiful, a state that's No.1 in educated population and health consciousness; a state that's getting huge foreign income, sent by the sons of the soil;a state where the entire population is skilled in many areas; a state where its Ayurveda is so very popular all over the country; a state that is most popular all over the world as a tourists popular for a wide variety of reasons - from its original and natural treatments for natural beauty treatments so special. Despite all and so many positives, the state has many challenges in terms of development and opportunities for its younger and the future generation.


A case in point is Kerala's textile sector. Kerala's textile industry Govt of India, which has once boasted of housing six National Textile Mills (NTC) are presently shut due to Covid. The closure is cited due to the onset of the pandemic, while hopefully are temporary, has resulted in entire assets to  the textile mills being not utilized and unable to produce the required quality of textiles. To appease the textile workers, however, the workers are paid full wages (tax payers money). A suggestion was made to equip the six textiles mills in Kerala to be equipped and capable of producing every type of textiles for the present and future of India's DEFENSE and our entire defense personal.Unfortunately, no organization or body is perhaps knowing or understanding of how to go about implementing or for executing the recommended Master plan.
"The required Master Plan for all the N T C Mills in Kerala Region is under preparation for a presentation at the earliest time to the authorities but let's now, know the condition of the mills which are idle for over a very long period of time for perfect deterioration of all perfectly running machines; which were modernized incurring multiple crores of tax prayers money by the N T C authorities under various perfectly unplanned schemes which are now being idle, It would now have rusted out and cannot produce marketable products in textile local competitive markets for local population; let alone the much needed EXPORTS for our country. The proposal given by Shri.N K Premachandra,MP of Kollam, must go through in which ever way it is given as it is going to be a non profitable research oriented DRDO company which must take over Parvathy Mills and start the ground work much needed with out wasting time". Of course not wasting and rusting assets of the Nation.
 
What Govt of India is doing is as under:

MINISTRY OF TEXTILES
RESOLUTION

New Delhi, the 17th March, 2020

S.O. 1148(E).With a view to position the country as a global leader in Technical Textiles, "National Technical Textiles Mission" has been approved for creation at a total outlay of Rs.1480 Crore; with a four year implementation period from FY 2020-21 to 2023-24.
 

Technical Textiles are futuristic and nice segment of textiles, which are used for various applications ranging from agriculture, roads, railway tracks, sportswear, health on one end to bullet proof jacket, fire proof jackets, high altitude combat gear and space applications on other end of spectrum.
 

Technical textiles are textiles materials and products manufactured primarily for technical performance and functional properties rather than aesthetic characteristics. Technical Textiles products are divided into 12
broad categories:

(Agrotech, Buildtech, Clothtech, Geotech, Hometech, Indutech, Mobiltech, Meditech, Protech, Sportstech, Oekotech, Packtech) depending upon their application areas.

India shares nearly 6% of world market size of 250 Billion USD. 

However, the annual average growth of the segment is 12%, as compared to 4% world average growth. 

Penetration level of technical textiles is low in India at 5-10%, against 30-70% in advanced countries. The Mission aims at improving penetration level of technical textiles in the country.

 
The Mission will have four components:-


The National Textile Corporation Limited (NTC) was incorporated in April 1968 for managing the affairs of sick textile undertakings, in the private sector, taken over by the Government. 
 
Starting with 16 mills in 1968, this number gradually rose to 103 by 1972–73.
 
In the year 1974 all these units were nationalized under the Sick Textile Undertakings (Nationalization) Act 1974. 
 
The number of units increased to 119 by 1995. 
 
These 119 mills were controlled by NTC (HC) Ltd with the help of 9 subsidiary Corporations, with an authorized capital of ₹100 million (US$1.3 million) which was raised from time to time and which is now ₹50 billion (US$660 million)[3] and the paid up share capital of the corporation is ₹30,621.6 million (US$410 million) as on 31 March 2010.
 
Looking to the reduced number of mills and in line with the contemporary industry’s trend all 9 subsidiary companies have been merged with NTC-HC making it into a single Company w.e.f. 01.04.2006.  
Part Time CMD was Shri Nihar Ranjan Dash,"who was Not Qualified or Experienced in Textile Mill Management." was CMD,he has superannuated and the New CMD is Shri Ashutosh Gupta.
"He is also a non technical textile person" " Can he run 77 Mills?'

"NTC has so far closed 77 mills and has transferred 2 mills in the State of Pondicherry to the State Government of Pondicherry".

"3 Big Composite Mills in Karnataka and 1 Big Composite Mill in AP Warengal were sold but its not mentioned in any report" 

Indu Mills in Mumbai is converted for a Public cause in 1915 in presence of our PM and other State & Textile Minister a picture here under for your information.


   "
A tripartite MoU between Government of India, Maharashtra Government and National Textile Corporation for transfer of Indu Mill land for construction of a memorial for Bharat Ratna Dr. B. R. Ambedkar signed on 5th April, 2015 in the presence of Shri Narendra Modi, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Santosh Kumar Gangwar, Hon’ble Minister of State for Textiles (Independent Charge) and Shri Devendra Fadnavis, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra".

"Government took over 103 textile Mills,where are the the other 16 mills status shown as per the report given in the para below, and shown 24 as modernized 24. While 16-2 mills shown differently for upgrading.

However,103-24 = 29  & 24+16 = 40 & 40-2=38 what sort of modernization/setup, revival and joint venture combo plan for NTC mills are planned by the authorities of NTC management is little confusing and this needs a serious 'Status' of the unplanned Plan shown here under.?"

"NTC is to modernize/set up 24 (22+2) mills by itself through generation of funds from the sale of its surplus assets and 16 (18–2) mills are to be revived through Joint Venture route" one more confusion.   

"NTC has modernized 18 mills so far and is in the process of setting up 3 Composite Textile Units of which one is an SEZ area".
SEZ of One Mills Where is it and what is the 'Status' is the Question some MP must ask or else it remains a the next confusing plan.
 
It is mentioned elsewhere that an amount of 2007.71 Rs. Crore is spent as on a given date on 26.09.2016 so, by now the mills must have made profits; if they were intended to make profit and how much profits are made by 2018 to 2021 financial years is to be shown for each mill for further in depth study.
 
"These 18 mills by now 2021 modernized, if were they were to show profit but are they running in year after year; making any profit." 
 
NTC would be setting up 1 Technical Textile Unit and modernizing 2 more units taken out from the list of Joint Venture apart from going into Ginning & Garments by way of forward and backward integration to have a presence in all components of the value chain."Does this mean it would be making good profits?. After spending tax payers money they call from"internal resources from sale of surplus lands""They sold the entire Mills"

Has NTC set up ONE 100% Technical Textile Mill?
What is the Good Name of that Mill and where is it?
What is the expected turnover of this mill?
What is the Technical Textile Mills production plan?
 
"Starting a Technical Textile Mill by the NTC is a good idea but do they have the infrastructure and technical staff with experience in running the Technical Textile Mills?." There must be a Performance Appraisal of all GM's of all mills under the control of NTC, HO, which can select good GM's whose performance appraisal was best, but a retired GM say's there was no appraisal when he was running several NTC Mills as GM by NTC technical Team or any research association like SITRA or BITRA. 
 
The proposal given by Shri.N K Premachandra ,M P of Kollum is to give a hands on training to Technical Textile Technology and Nano Engineering applied Nano Textiles to Qualified personal in the Research Institute at Parvathi Mills, Koullum for posting them in required area to Run Technical Textile Mills in NTC or any other Technical Textile Mills wanting them as there is no Technical Textile University in India or a much needed research Mills, in Modren Technology "Nono Technology" giving hands on experience in Technical Textiles qualified in textile technology degree or diploma candidates.

Some Quotes - Source: Wikipedia.

Question Hour in Lok Sabha by Sri.Premachandran N.K's Question.
 
Answer to question.d) to (f): The employees of Parvathy Mills have requested to extend double ex-gratia and relieve them under MVRS. 
 
As per MVRS guidelines, the employees are not entitled to the benefits sought by them. NTC has relieved 634 workers of this mill under MVRS, so far. 
 
Government has received some representations including one representation from the Hon'ble Member of Parliament (Kollam Constituency) for increase of wages for the gate Badli/Casual Workers of Parvathy Mills. 
 
All workers of this mill are being paid idle wages, owing to the mill being closed since November, 2008. Enhancing the wages of idle workers of a closed mill is not a feasible option. What was feasible?.
 
NTC has settled dues of 634 workers till date who opted for MVRS. The rest of the workers are being paid idle wages.

UNSTARRED QUESTION NO:1551 ANSWERED ON:09.03.2017 Question on Disinvestment in NTC by Shri N.K.Premachandran,M P.(Kollam,Kerala,India)
(Its most surprising that No MP has asked any question Except Shri.N K Premachandran. after 09-03-2017 regarding any NTC mills in Kerala).

Another Hon MP KUNWAAR HAIBANSH SINGH has asked several Questions (Question No.4834) in Lok Sabha they are as under,However they are all: a answer, now a very sad thing of the past.
 
All Kerala Mills are closed after spending Rs.137.47 crores for Modernization and expansion of just 3 Mills,(1) Algappa Textile Mills,(2) Cannanore S&W Mills,(3)Cannanore Mills (MAHE) Mlls,as suggested by a textile consultant firm. 
 
As reported by SMT.SMRITIZUBIN IRANI, MINISTER FOR TEXTILES. 
 
There is a Rs.(-)84.71 crore for Vijayamohini Mills and Rs,(-)11.28 Crore for Kerala Laxmi Mills reported as money spent for Modernization which is confusing as how can a (-) amount was spent on Modernization?. NTC after spending a grand sum of Rs.410.40 Crores, 
 
Now all the Mills are closed and the justification that its closed due to Pendemic as of now as I type these words is unacceptable.

The Answer given by the Minister to the Question (e) of question No.4824 is "the expenditure involved in the modernization of each NTC mill during the period and the corrective measures taken/being taken by the Government to Improve the condition of NTC mills and make running at their full capacity?"
 
However,All mills have given Installed Spindles with yarn production in Kg per year and it's not known about spindles utilization per year and average count correspondingly,as such how can NTC judge the performance?of each unit; if one has to judge the performance it is a known by the mills performance measure Index; given by SITRA used and SITRA should haven been asked to do the job: not by non technical persons. SITRA is reporting on textile mill performance every year for hundreds of textile mills "but NTC somehow is not involved in this yearly performance of each mills Rank for all the mill managed by them".
 
Data sent by Mills simply tabulated by Finance Dept or some one in accounts department or by window dressing will never give real picture of mills under the control of Bureaucrats "who are not textile technology experts" deputed by Textile Ministry, how will NTC mills improve if the mills performance be known; if individual mills performance are NOT under a professional body like SITRA,BITRA etc.
 
Here can see also else where the Textile Minister saying nothing about Parvathy Mill which is the 6th textile Mill in Kerala.?
 
The 6 NTC Textile Mills in Kerala under Parvathy Mills producing Nano Technical Textile Fabrics and other Defense Needs are to be procured if DRDO is managed and not NTC. Further all goods to be made must be only under Indian Technical Textile Standards - International / Indian / DRDO only. The goods should be export quality only and may also be exported and rejected goods sold locally.
 
The 6 NTC Mills in KERALA to be run by DRDO as defence units comming not under NTCL are:
1 - Parvathy Mills - Kollum, Dist, Kerala ( Spg,Weg and Processing for Research and Fabrics for Coating of Nano Technology.Medical Textiles and Non Wovens for Medical Textiles.
 
2 - Vijayamohini Mills - Thiruvananthpuram - StateCapital.(For Industrial Yarns Technical Textiles, Build Textiles,Agro Textiles.)
 
3 - Kerala Laxmi Mills Thirusur, Kerala Industrial Yarns,Technical Textiles,Geo Textiles and Agro Textiles and Sports Textiles.
 
4 - Alagappa Textile Mills - Technical Textile Nets for Fishing and all types of Nets and other Yarns for Industrial Ropes and for Climbing Ropes,ladder ropesof all types for Defence Needs,Thirusur, Kerala
 
5 - Cannanre Spg & Weg Mills - Polyester Yarns for Sewing Kannur.
 
6 - Cannanore Mills - Medical Textiles,Geo Textiles and Sports,Mahe.
 
Parvathy Mills workers around 634 were all sent on VRS by paying the full+ salary of their number of months service upto their full service till retirement and the mill was shown as not working due to labor shortage did they not know if 600+ workers were sent overnight on VRS  salary mill will go short of labor and they will have to stop a full fledged modernized "haphazardly" keeping ill experienced persons as General Managers in composite mills perfectly mismanaged have now benn stopped. 
 
Who took the decision to send 634 workers on VRS and how?.Most of the workers siblings are in some country and they will not starve if they don't have a job so they are cleaver and took VRS. 
 
A industry of over 125 years was stopped by some one who has only one "agenda" that is to sell the mill for a real estate guy.
 
A plan of action by highly qualified experienced team of textile technologists for a future Research oriented Nano Engineering Technology Textile mill to produce every textile mill production to Defense Fabrics in Kerala was presented to Textile Minister by MP of the District of Kollum several months ago to the "Part Time" Textile Minister of Government of India. "Defense Minister has told to Media that DRDO will help Kerala to start operations but nothing is known till now".
 
Government of Kerala is not interested to do anything as they are perfectly managing the state where the problem is for the people who are living in an atmospherics of fear by unlawful people supported by those in power or under such influence who are powerful in power places and power points.
 
The Future of Kerala TEXTILE MILLS is blackish blackest Black as of now in 2021. 
 
However M P of Kollum has presented a Proposal to the Minister of Textiles for conversion of Parvathy Mills as a Nano Engineering Technology applied Nano Textiles; as Technical Textile Material in the Research INSTITUTE under DRDO that is Parvathy Mills Kollum and to supply requirement of all textile items for converting as for example, open goods transport Tarpaulin canvas fabrics, to be converted as nano metal coated by the application of Nano Engineering Technology and sold as Nano Textile Tarpaulins and Tent Canvas Cloth, where the strength as well as character of the fabric changes for wrinkle proof,water proof,fire and flame proof as well as Rodents proof which will make all other fabrics such as Bullet Proof material and hand gloves and knife proof fabric ect.
 
Westren countries especially Canada is researching in Nano Textiles since more than 10 years and still commercial productions are yet to reach the needed requirement of the world. 
 
The proposal to this research is perhaps are to be approved by:
 
" Component -I (Research, Innovation and Development)
 
Carbon Fibre, Aramid Fibre, Nylon Fibre, and Composites and (ii) application based research in: 
Geo-textiles, 
Agro-textiles, 
Medical textiles, 
Mobile textiles,
Sports textiles.
And the development of bio-degradable technical textiles. 
The total outlay for this component is Rs.1000 crs.
 
The fundamental research activities will be based on ‘pooled resource’ method and will be conducted in various Centre for Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) laboratories,  
 
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and other scientific/ industrial/ academic laboratories of repute. 
 
Application based research will be conducted in; CSIR, IIT, Research Design & Standards Organization (RDSO) of Indian Railways, Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), 
Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO), 
National Aeronautical Laboratory (NAL), 
Indian Road Research Institute (IRRI) and other such reputed laboratories, as approved by the Mission Steering Group"
 
This above items mentioned for research approved items does not mention Nano Engineering Technology for application in Technical Textiles. 
Hemp, wool, organic cotton, soy silk, bamboo fabrics,fiber jute, corn etc are considered as Eco-friendly fabrics due to their availability from nature with out any harmful effects of chemical or toxics. Moreover, as compared to other synthetic fibers they are available in a cheaper rate.
"What chemical toxins has harmful effects on Heavy Long Trucks covering, packed goods covered with Nano Tarpaulins going on High ways to anyone is a point to be noted here."The proposal given by Shri N K Premachandra MP (Kollam) for the project proposal of Parvathy Mills (Kollam) needs a detailed proposal to be made and to submit this proposal to the above designated group there is a urgent  need and first the ground work at Parvathi Mills.The first thing that needs to be taken up for research in this proposal is whether the need for the merit it deserves for the project as also as a non profitable Research Institute?. This is already established by scientists at western nations 10 years ago which is already in the public domain and now where in our country any research is going on a dedicated Nano Textile research and therefore the need is to take over PARVATHY MILL by DRDO and a with a ad-hoc sanction of the budget required and to start the work for setting up the research Institute is most URGENT.The Budget required to start will be submitted after the appointed Executive Director.
 
The need of the hour is to take a decision to approve the proposal like any other proposal taken up by the government for future development of the technical textile industry as well as the mother of all Industry which is Textiles of our Nation. This is the official Plan of the Govt.
 
Just click, and view the zoom diagram of the picture below in a new page and see what is the processing sequence of Nano textile processing which is here under:

All Bio degradable fabrics as well as non bio degradable products can be upgraded as Nano Textile Technical Textile Products by the application of Nano Engineering Technology to higher value products by research in the proposal given to the Textile Minister by Shri N K Premachandra MP of Kollum, Kerala. 
 
Hemp, wool, organic cotton, soy silk, bamboo fabrics, jute, corn fiber etc are considered as Eco-friendly fabrics due to their availability from nature with out any harmful effects of chemical or toxins. Moreover, as compared to other synthetic fibers they are available in a cheaper rate.They can be upgraded as Nano Textiles by the procedure of Nano Engineering Technology and they will be value added products.

Ad-hoc sanction of funds for preparation of this research which is going on all over many of the developed country's over the globe since few years must be started at Parvathy Mills.The work involved here is for example is as under:
  
1 ) Property of the Material to be - Antibacterial / Odor control  

2 ) Technology to be used - Silver Nano particles.

 3) Functionality of Application - Silver Nano particles inhibit bacterial metabolism, which causes infection and Odour, causing the bacteria to die. 

4) Nano-silver colloids are used in wet chemical reduction treatments on textiles.

Nanomaterials and their Applications in Textiles – Standards

a) Nano-enabled properties
Properties associated with current nanotechnology research for use in textiles include; 

1) Aesthetics (e.g., luminescence)           
2) Stain resistance
3) Static protection
4) UV protection
5 Water repellent (hydrophobic)
6)Wrinkle resistance

7- Shirnk Resistence
8- Self-cleaning

9- Antimicrobial 

10- Electrical conductivity
11- Fire resistance
12-  Fragrance release
13 -High strength
14)- Moisture management

As examples, antimicrobial textiles include anti-o dour, anti-fungal and antibacterial textiles. 

This applies to products whose fibers possess intrinsic bactericidal properties or will acquire them through subsequent treatments (chemical finishing, nanotechnologies, addition of bactericidal metals, etc.).
 

Products have potential applications in apparel and intimate apparel, but also in a number of non-apparel applications (furniture, carpets, etc.). 

These textiles significantly reduce or even eliminate traditional textile-care operations (washing, spin drying, dryi ng, ironing). Properties include spill, wrinkle, oil and stain resistance.

 

This needs for adhoc sanction and permission by the highest authority of the Governament is to hand over all assests of Parvathi Mills to DRDO who has to start the Research at Parvathi Mills as early as required perhaps in the beginning of the New Year 2022 to speed up the already available resources at Parvathy Mills in Kollum at Kerala where no project worth future needs of research in textiles and technical textiles (Nano Textiles) is devotedly going on in any Textile Research Institute such as SITRA in south India.

 
DRDO must appoint a Technical Textile Expert like Dr.Pramod Raichurker who is with "Man Made Textile Fiber Research Institute" as Director of research in this center at Surat in Gujarat. He has the Doctorate in Textiles as also various research done in Nano Textile applications and many other research in other interested technical textile fiber and fabrics of all functional textiles fabrics. 

Textiles was once the Mother of all Industries; it still is but very differently standing tall in apparel fabrics and functional fabrics. 
 
The Export potential of Textiles predicted in Textile Magazine, November 2021 is USD $ 10 Billion and to push it to over USD $60 Billion by 2026 we need not a Part Time Textile Minister crowded by innumerable bunch of over 100 Bureaucrats and their Babus of over 100. We have to have a very strong team of dedicated men in Textile Ministry.
 
We need PM's intervention in Textiles, it is the mother for Billions of mouth to feed by the Industry and already the govt's efforts to enter Ginning & Garments industry by NTC and after Stopping over 100 textile Mill all over the country is a sad thing indeed for NTCs Management. Many of the Lakhs of textile workers are on footpath with Sad Face and bleak future at the fag end of their service to the textile Industry.
 
All MP's of Kerala must unite to show That, INDIAN Textile Industry in Kerala is a 'Sun Raise' Industry.
 
The proposal put up by Shri N.K.Premachandra MP f Kollum,Kerala now must go one step and all 6 textile mills in Kerala need to be Handed over to DRDO who will take steps to appoint a Director for the groundwork to start the project.

"Dr.Pramod Raichurker" if appointed as Executive Director  to report to DRDO Chairman and to none in Textile Minister or anybody under Textile Minister. He "Mr.Promod Raichurkar" will produce Nano Textile Truckers Tarpaulin a water proof,flame proof,dust proof, much stronger and more lighter fabric with in 18 months for trial and tests.

"Dr.Pramod Raichurkar" will start ground Project work No1 to start work and simultaneously take up the construction activity to set up the required processing of fabrics especially the Logistic organizations who need to cover the goods which are not as per standards now and is required for present Heavy long transport vehicles especially in defense and get samples for testing.- 1 month time to select and to set up the machines available at the mills.
 
Simultaneously another project No2 is to select the machines needed for production of samples in Spinning and Weaving a mini plant, to be se up from the existing machinery and the testing machines in the lab testing department to set up by calling tenders for all machines as well as recruiting persons who are to be sent to machine suppliers to get training in testing the machine.Action - E D
 
Project No.3 Civil work to be taken up and contractor to be appointed and list of work to be done for the entire complex  plans to be drawn. The plan will include everything that a person coming at any time gets a cup of tea and something to eat and if he needs a bath it is available. Khakhi 'T' Shirts and Knickers will be the uniform for Men and Sarees and T Shirts also for Woman personal. DRDO is a defense organization.Action E D

Project No.4 The entire mill compound has to be strengthen and painted in Kakhi color to look like a DRDO unit. The office building must be renovated and the required staff must be recruited this process needs a Manager Human Relations who knows his work.Action E D

Project No.5  Electrical Engineer must start the work and all lighting system which was not working must be at appropriate time start working This can be discussed with local power suppliers in the first case - Action - E D

Project No.6 All water supply system needs to be set up where ever required and it also is important to keep maximum care to use existing system made workable to reduce the initial expenses. Action - E D

Project No.7 The Main Office complete repair and painting, fixing doors and windows which can be made to work. Doors and further work needed List must be made so that cost can be calculated and work started. Action E D

Project No.8.Canteen to supply only Tea & Biscuit till the work starts fully and there after it will be managed by workers on rotation. Action E D.

Project No.9 The existing stores may be surveyed and made suitable for use as Plant Store.

Project No.10 Library Building - Action ED

Project No.11 Security - Action E D.
 
Project No 12 Land Scaping -  Action E D

Project No 13 Time Office - Existing Time Office to be made Ready Action ED

Project No.14 Car Park for officers - Road Repairs, Cycle Shed, Road Asphalting and Trees Maintaining and removing all dry leaves in the compound. Action E D .

Project No 15 - Finance and Accounting Staff requirement - Action E D.
 
Project No.16 - Labour Officer & Office - E D.
 
Project No 17 E D will draw the list further and the required men for Digital Records Office and equipments.
 
Personal Officer - E D will take it up as and when required.
 
Asst Director -1 - Qualified & Experienced in Nano Technology applications on Textiles.
 
Scientific Asst - 1 MSc in Science from IIT Institute or Equivalent IIT's
 
Scientific Asst - A grade - 5 MSc from a Recognized Institute.
 
Maintenance Staff in Laboratory - 5 - BSc from Recognized University.
 
Maintenance Staff - 15 -General for the Institute - S S L C 1st Class.From any Govt Recognized School.
 
Service Staff - 10 - General as Trainees from Skilled Staff should know Read and Write - English - Local Languages.
 
Any other Staff as Decided by E D on recommendation from Selection Committee set up by the ED.
 
The above requirement of personal is subjected to changes as per ED's instructions as required by the Research Institute.
 
The Organizational Chart will be as per the chart of DRDO and the Executive Director will be the Head of the organizational Chart. 

The outside Director should be MP of Kollum.KERALA.

The People of Kerala have elected Shri. N K Premachandra continuously for 3 terms as he is very popular MP taking care of his constituency for all the needs of peoples needs required and he should be the the Director appointed by the Govt to represent Kerala in the Organizational Chart.
 
There is a need for a complete overhaul of NTC since the organization has gone from bad to worse, closing many units,sold machinery and demolished good buildings to sell prime lands of some units and prepared a list of NTC mills for sale which has defeated the purpose for which the closed mills and sick mills were Nationalized as per "Sick Textile Undertakings ( Nationalization) Act 1974. 
 
The late Prime Minister of India, Smt India Gandhi when told that she is spending a huge sum of Money by her plan, her Reply was Surprising.

 
Some people may know her answer let them comment here.

ABSTRACT ON NANO TEXTILES.

Increasing customer demand for durable and functional apparels manufactured in a sustainable manner has created an opportunity for nano materials to be integrated into textile substrates.

Nano moieties can induce: 

Stain-repellence, 

Wrinkle-freeness, 

Static elimination, 

and electrical conductivity to fibers without compromising their comfort and flexibility. 

Nanomaterials also offer a wider application potential to create connected garments that can sense and respond to external stimuli via electrical, color, or physiological signals. 

This Review discusses electronic and photonic nono technologies that are integrated with textiles, and shows their applications in displays, sensing and drug release within the context of performance, durability, and connectivity. 

Risk factors including nanotoxicity, nanomaterial release during washing, and environmental impact of nanotextiles based on life cycle assessments have been evaluated. 

This Review also provides an analysis of nanotechnology consolidation in textiles market to evaluate global trends and patent coverage, supplemented by case studies of commercial products. Perceived limitations of nanotechnology in the textile industry and future directions are identified.

Why are technical textiles so important? 

Technical textiles encompass a wide range of uses. Technical textiles are 

highly functional and high-performance materials and products. 

Technical textiles exploit innovative production processes.  

They are niche products and markets. Comparatively high 

costs and low pay- backs for production and sales of 

commodity goods.  To ensure sustainable growth of textile 

industry in the industrialized world.
