Outlines what the organization wants to be, or how it wants the world in which it operates to be (an "idealised" view of the world). It is a long-term view and concentrates on the future. It can be emotive and is a source of inspiration.

For example, a charity working with the poor might have a vision statement which reads "A World without Poverty."

Defines the fundamental purpose of an organization or an enterprise, succinctly describing why it exists and what it does to achieve its vision. For example, the charity above might have a mission statement as "providing jobs for the homeless and unemployed".

The vision of the planners is to make STEP a movement that would spread all over the country - a movement that would result in multitude of technology based enterprises with high value addition capabilities. This would also result in the host institutions, in turn, becoming more industry oriented, focusing on generating more technologies which would further trigger a greater number of entrepreneurs to come forward hence the term 'Movement'. If the technocrats become employers rather than employees and aid the nation in wealth creation, STEP's can be said to have achieved the noble objective with which they are being set up.

PSG-STEP facilitates entrepreneurs in converting the idea into a prototype and take it the proof of concept stage. Once the prototype is proven the proof of concept is established, small volume production can be carried out within PSG-STEP premises.

The Indian textile industry, started in 1850s, was still in a primitive craft stage till 1930s. Little formal education, rule of thumb solutions to problems, secrecy by mills and isolation of technicians were rampant.

Ten visionary technocrats brought 126 technicians and managers together on Sunday, the 9th April 1939 to establish the Textile Association (India); a forum for free exchange of technical and other information in a spirit of fellowship and cooperation.

Established in 1933 by late Sir. R.K.Shanmugam Chettiar, the first Finance Minister of Independent India. Started with 11 members. At present 375 textile mills spread over the States of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Pondicherry and Tamilnadu are members of SIMA. A few mills in the States of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra are also members.

SIMA member mills account for 93.06 lakh spindles and 5781 looms.
Out of the total spinning capacity of 402.01 lakh spindles in the country, about 24% is represented by SIMA. Approximately 2 Lakh workers are employed in SIMA member mills. SIMA member mills together produced 25% of total cotton yarn manufactured in the country. 50% of cotton yarn exported from India comes from Southern textile mills.

Indian Cotton Federation (ICF), so far known as the South Indian Cotton Association (SICA), is planning a standard contract for cotton as most of the issues associated with cotton are common. The violent fluctuations in cotton prices and consequent defaults have prompted the federation officials to think of a new contract formula for cotton

The price of cotton rose to Rs. 63,000 per candy (1 candy = 356 kg) between February and April 2011. However, following the international price movement, it fell to Rs. 30,000 per candy in a few weeks.

Spinning History

Backward draw to spin In the backward draw the twist is going into the fiber as you are drafting back. You almost cannot feel the draft it is so light. It is easier to watch the twist go into the drafting zone; holding the fiber very lightly, keep pulling back to stay just ahead of the twist so it stays in the drafting zone and does not move into fiber you are holding in your hand. This is sometimes called the point of twist draw.
