Ministries of Power and Textile come together under the SAATHI Initiative.

The new SAATHI (Sustainable and Accelerated Adoption of efficient Textile technologies to Help small Industries) Initiative has helped Ministries of Textile and Power to join hands to assist the Small Scale Industries. Office of the Textile Commissioner and Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) will jointly implement the SAATHI Initiative across the country. Energy efficient Powerlooms, Rapier kits and Motors would be procured by EESL in bulk under this initiative and will be provided to the small and medium units of the powerloom without any upfront cost.
