The minister also said the government is looking at prospects in emerging fields like personal protection equipment (PPE) where cotton can be leveraged from across the dimension of technical textiles. At the same event, textiles Secretary Ravi Capoor said certain ‘markers’ have been developed in conjunction with the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) for branding Indian organic cotton, and it is in the last stages of finalisation.
