ABOUT TEXTILE COMMISSIONER

The office of the textile commissioner was established in 1943 during World War II for arranging the supply of cloth to the defence forces as well as civilian population. After the end of the war, the textile commissioner was given the regulatory function of administering the prices, distribution and control of certain varieties of cloth meant for civilian consumption in the post-war conditions of scarcity. However, after Independence the office assumed a developmental role and contributed towards modernisation and growth of all segments of the textiles and clothing industry.

The textile commissioner acts as the principal technical advisor to the Ministry of Textiles and carries out techno-economic surveys and advises the government on the general economic health of the textiles industry through its eight regional offices at Amritsar, Noida, Indore, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Navi Mumbai and Ahmedabad.

The post of the textile commissioner used to be occupied by senior IAS officers. Since the post was in Mumbai, many IAS officers of Maharashtra cadre used to apply for it so that their central deputation period was also completed.
