I take this opportunity to invite all the stake holders to Indian Institute of Carpet Technology (IICT), Srinagar, an autonomous organization, established by office of the Development Commissioner (Handicrafts), Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India and Industries and Commerce Department (Directorate of Handicrafts), Govt. of Jammu and Kashmir to provide necessary technical support to the regional carpet industry of the State.

 The Institute is located in the historical city of Srinagar near the erstwhile capital of former ruler Sultan-Zain-ul-Abideen. The Institute has been mandated to work for the overall development and growth of the carpet industry of J&K State through continuous research of processes/ technologies involved in carpet manufacturing with a view to introduce modern methods/ techniques and also by providing education and training facility for developing a technically qualified human resource  who could take the centuries old carpet industry to new heights of excellence so that it can sustain and enlarge its production base to its full potential with consistent quality as per the customer requirements.
