Smriti Irani applauds jute-based sanitary napkins

KOLKATA: Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani today applauded the low-cost jute based sanitary napkin developed by Indian Jute Industries Research Association (IJIRA) here and asked the body to help promote women entrepreneurship.

”The jute-based sanitary napkins are natural and do not have many chemical interventions compared to normal napkins available.

I want IJIRA to make presentations to ministries like women empowerment and rural development to promote women entrepreneurship,” Irani said at the inauguration of a IJIRA technical seminar.

She said as the machinery requirement for the jute-based sanitary napkins will cost about Rs 10 lakhs, and entrepreneurs can benefit from MUDRA loan scheme of the government.
