In an interview to CNBC-TV18, Neeraj Jain, Joint MD of Vardhman Textiles spoke about the latest happenings in his company and sector.

“The area under cultivation next year is expected to be much higher. So the overall crop seems to be better compared to this year and that is why there could be an expectation of higher inventory, so the prices may drop,” he said.

Jain further mentioned that current inventory will have an impact as prices fall down.

Speaking about GST, he said that, “Going by all the input credits available on the services and other things, there may not be any adverse impact on the cotton yarn side.”
