The relaxation in minimum number of days requirement under Section 80JJA from 240 days to 150 days will specifically benefit the textile exporters who at times are required to engage labour to meet the seasonal demands.

The exemption from employees' contribution to those drawing wages upto Rs 15000 and contribution by the Government in lieu of Employer will facilitate bringing workers from informal sector into a formal sector thereby entitling them for the various benefits extended by the Government aimed at labour welfare.

FIEO Chief said that the special package for textile and apparel sectors should be supplemented by the new Textile Policy to provide a long term vision and long term goal for the textile industry so as to gear itself to meet the challenges from South Asian and South East Asian countries.
