Union minister Smriti Irani Sunday said Indian textiles and garments industry would soon get its own country-specific apparel size. Addressing the 'Textile Conclave' at the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, Irani said a study will be carried out before introducing the 'Size India' project for apparel measurement. "In the apparel export segment, one of the biggest challenges is that the UK has its size, the US has its size, and Europe has its size of measurement. But, India does not have it (size of apparels, such as 42, 44 and XL)," she said.
