​​​Vision and Mission

The Indian raw silk demand is expected to grow at the rate of 5-7% per annum. The domestic consumption of raw silk is also expected to grow at the same rate. The gap between demand and supply is likely to remain in the medium term horizon. In compliance with the National Fiber Policy, Department of Sericulture, Government of Karnataka strives to maintain a balance between the interests of all stakeholders in the value chain, including farmers, reelers, twisters, weavers and value- addition designers.

  • The main objectives are horizontal and vertical expansion of the mulberry area and increase the production and productivity and reduce the production cost.
  • This will be achieved through encouraging contract/ corporate farming, market reforms, emphasizing extension activities in new areas in addition to the ongoing programmes.
  • Sericulture is an ideal crop to improve North Karnataka which has congenial soil, climate, man power and the opportunity for development of socioeconomic conditions. In this region, through cluster model, sericulture development work will be taken up. To improve the quality of raw silk, bivoltine hybrid cocoon production will be enhanced.
  • With all these steps, the department has set an aim to increase the raw silk production to 10300 MT during 2014-15.
  • Impetus will also be given for diversification of sericulture related activities for generation of additional income.
