How the new technology will impact the income of the farmers / end users:
The roving sliver is outsourced from mills and processing plants to make yarn on Amber and other charkhas. Independency of yarn making at cotton production site i.e. fibre to fabric can be achieved. Additional income avenue for the farmers by production of sliver, web and yarn. The clean web can be used for surgical cotton and equivalent use.
Development of rural employment and entrepreneurship.
