Government bans firms supplying imported jute bags


  • The Ministry of Textiles (MoT) has warned the companies supplying imported jute bags for government procurements will be blacklisted for two years and will face criminal proceedings.
  • Even if a single jute bag being supplied to the government is found to be procured from abroad, action will be taken against owners and directors of the company.
  • The warning follows reports of unscrupulous traders and organisations importing B-Twill sacking and cloth from Bangladesh or Nepal and using them in government procurements.
  • Such trade adversely affects the domestic market consisting of lakhs of jute mill workers and cultivators.
