The agency assigned outlook for the sector as “secure” for FY2022.

The recovery in the domestic textile sector, that picked up rate in Q3 FY2021, is probably to go on in the upcoming quarters, claimed ICRA.

After witnessing a big setback in Q1 FY2021 subsequent the Covid-19 pandemic and the ensuing lockdowns, the domestic textile sector started out reporting a gradual recovery from Q2 FY2021 onwards.
