The Textile package boosted exports of key man-made ready-made garments by 16 per cent as per the Economic Survey 2017-18. The document, which was tabled in Lok Sabha noted that the apparel sector has immense potential to drive economic growth, increase employment, and empower women in India. In June 2016, the Cabinet had announced Rs. 6,000 cr package for the apparel sector.
