i. AND - Shows results where both terms on either side of the 'AND' operator are present. 'AND' must be in upper case. For example search term - delhi AND metro result - It will return records in which 'delhi' as well as 'metro' both are present.

ii. OR - Shows results where either term (or both terms) is present. 'OR' must be in upper case. For example search term - delhi OR metro result - It will return records in which either 'delhi' or 'metro' or both are present

2. Proximity Searches

A proximity search looks for terms that are within a specific distance from one another. For example, search term - 'delhi metro'~10 result - It will search for records where 'delhi' and 'metro' are found within 10 words of each other

3. Phrase searches

You can search phrases using double quotes. for e.g. 'delhi metro' result - It will return records where 'delhi metro' phrase is found.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA), chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has given nod for setting up a National Technical Textiles Mission with a total outlay of Rs 1,480 crore, with a view to position the country as a global leader in Technical Textiles. The implementation period of the mission is from FY21 to FY24. The Mission will have four components.

Component-I includes research, innovation and development with outlay of Rs 1,000 crore. This component will promote both fundamental research at fibre level aiming at path breaking technological products in carbon fibre, aramid fibre, nylon fibre, and composites and application based research in geo-textiles, agro-textiles, medical textiles, mobile textiles and sports textiles and development of biodegradable technical textiles.

The fundamental research activities will be based on pooled resource method and conducted in various Centre for Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) laboratories, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and other scientific/industrial/academic laboratories.

Application-based research will be conducted in CSIR, IIT, Research Design & Standards Organisation (RDSO) of Indian Railways, Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO), National Aeronautical Laboratory (NAL), Indian Road Research Institute (IRRI) and other such laboratories.

Component -II includes promotion and market development. The mission will aim at average growth rate of 15-20 percent per annum taking the level of domestic market size to USD 40-50 billion by the year 2024, through market development, market promotion, international technical collaborations, investment promotions and Make in India initiatives.

Component-III aims at export promotion of technical textiles enhancing from the current annual value of approximately Rs 14,000 crore to Rs 20,000 crore by 2021-22 and ensuring 10 percent average growth in exports per year up to 2023-24.

Component-IV aims at education, training, skill development, etc. The mission will promote technical education at higher engineering and technology levels related to technical textiles and its application areas covering engineering, medical, agriculture, aquaculture and dairy segments. Skill development will be promoted and adequate pool of highly skilled manpower resources will be created for meeting the need of relatively sophisticated technical textiles manufacturing units.

The mission will focus on usage of technical textiles in various flagship missions, programmes of the country including strategic sectors. Also, the use of geo-textiles in highways, railways and ports will result in robust infrastructure, reduced maintenance cost and higher life cycle of the infrastructure assets.

The promotion of innovation amongst young engineering /technology/ science standards and graduates will be taken up by the mission; along with creation of innovation and incubation centres and promotion of start-up and ventures.

A sub-component of the research will focus on development of bio- degradable technical textiles materials, particularly for agro-textiles, geo-textiles and medical textiles.

A Mission Directorate in the Ministry of Textiles headed by an eminent expert in the related field will be made operational. The Mission Directorate will not have any permanent employment and there will be no creation of building infrastructure for the mission purpose.
