A large number of textile men were seen taking keen interest in the facilities being made available to them. Dr. Ajay Ranka and his team of technical experts explained them in details the working of the Center and how they could be benefitted from the Center’s services.
Following is the transcript of the interview NCM had with Dr. Ranka on the occasion.
There are 2-3 areas where we would like to bring about the change in the textile processing field. We feel that the new generation of people, associated with the textile fabric, has to be more strong and bold enough to create new effects with respect to performance, quality and fashion. The entire menswear, especially the shirts wear, and also the kids wear to a large extent have to be taken to the next level. We are of the opinion that there is a total disconnect here and textile merchants are clueless about many aspects of the value-addition techniques available.
An important point that must be taken into the account is that when you are trying to create an effect on the fabric, it generally leads to pollution which has a cost associated with it and also government compliance to be adhered to. This is a major issue. Here we intend to offer new technologies to create new effects without any environmental issues. This is where we want to connect with textile and apparel buyers or merchants to provide them ways and means to adopt next level of advanced technologies and create products that are more profitable and do not cause any pollution during their production.
