The Budget 2018-19 is good in part for the textile industry thanks to corporate tax cut for MSMEs and higher allocation for ATUFS. The ITJ Cover Story of March 2018 takes stock of the budget implications and the industry’s reactions. Spotlight is on the Maharashtra Textile Policy, which aims to reduce power tariff and raise capital subsidy for spinning mills. GV Aras, Director of A.T.E. Enterprises, and Thirupathi S, Managing Director of Indo Texnology, feature in our Face2Face section. EnterPRIZE of the month is the Baroda-based Kusters Calico. Also don’t miss a complete report on the recently-concluded Oerlikon Customer’s Meet at Daman.
