The Directorate

The immense potentiality of Sericulture in reconstructing rural economy and its labour intensive nature necessitated creation of a separate Directorate under Cottage & Small Scale Industries Department way back in the year 1975. The Govt. of West Bengal later in the year 2009 set up the Directorate of Textiles headed by the Commissioner of Textiles under the Department of Micro & Small Scale Enterprises & Textiles (erstwhile Cottage & Small Scale Industries Department). Under this Directorate, the erstwhile Directorates of (i) Sericulture & (ii) Handloom & Textiles have been put in the name of

  • Sericulture Division
  • Handloom & Silk Weaving Division
  • and another new Division has been created viz. Readymade Garments, Hosiery and Powerloom Division.

The existing Office of the Commissioner, Textiles and Sericulture is housed at 45, Ganesh Chandra Avenue (2nd floor), Kolkata-700013.
