Abstract:

India is the leading producer of raw jute and jute products in the world. India’s sacking goods production comprises 75% of the total goods production and B twill bags, used for packaging rice and wheat, and contributes 85% of the total sacking bag production. Still there exists an increasing trend of imports of jute products due to the increase in the domestic consumption of conventional jute goods. Bangladesh is the major exporter in jute goods, with India in 2nd position. Hessian cloth and bags are the major exporting items of jute goods from India. In the overall situation, there exists a unique opportunity of the jute industry to improve the social and economic conditions of the states concerned as well as the country. Being the preferred sector in raw jute production due to suitable topographical conditions, emphasis now needs to be placed on modernization of the jute sector with a view to developing a viable and efficient jute manufacturing sector in the country.
