It employed nearly 51 million people directly and 68 million people indirectly in 2015-16. As everyone says, ‘Roti, Kapdaa aur Makaan’ are the three basic necessities of India. Kapdaa, or Clothing is certainly a basic necessity, however, it also adds fashion, uniqueness and motivation to our lives,” said Shri Tiwari.
