The Main Industrial Sectors

The textile industry which was brough under the purview of the National Textile Board (NTB) in 1974, consisted of one cotton spinning mill, four composite spinning-cum-weaving mills, two garment manufacturing factories, one woollen blankets factory and another making gunny bags and hessian cloth. A handloom weaving project had also been started in 1968 by the Ministry of Culture and Community Development. Apart from these government establishments, there were several garment making units of varying sizes in the private sector.
