Abstract:
India is the world's second largest producer of textiles and garments after China. It is the world's third largest producer of cotton after China and the USA and the second largest cotton consumer after China. The Indian textile industry is as diverse and complex as country itself and it combines with equal equanimity this immense diversity into a cohesive whole. India's garment industry has been rapidly growing in the last few years. It contributes substantially to India's export earnings and it is estimated that one out of every six households in the country depends on this sector, either directly or indirectly, for its livelihood. The growth of the garment sector however, is not going hand in hand with an improvement in the working conditions of the garment workers The garment industry contributes 16.63% to the foreign earnings of India and it employs over 3.5 million workers. There are five different garment production hubs in India; all specialize in different types of garment production. Bangalore is one of the centers of production of garment and has somewhere around 1200 big, small and medium sized garment factories. A review of garment industries revealed that, it is one of the largest manufacturing sectors in India.
