  • Mains – GS 3 (Science and Technology)

Context: Minister of State, Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas informed the Rajya Sabha about the E20 programme of the government.

About E20 fuel:

  • The number “20” in “E20” refers to the percentage of ethanol in the gasoline blend.
  • Simply put, the higher the number, the higher the percentage of Ethanol in the gasoline.
  • India’s current ethanol-to-petroleum mix is 10%, the highest it has ever been.
  • Because it is made from biomass, ethanol does not require crude oil.
  • Ethanol is primarily produced from crops such as corn and sugarcane.
  • India already produces significant quantities of grain and sugarcane. It may allow automobiles to use a higher proportion of Ethanol.

Ethanol blending:

  • Naturally, Produced– Ethanol is a biofuel, naturally produced by the fermentation of sugars by yeasts or by petrochemical processes like ethylene hydration.
  • Derived from agricultural products– In ethanol blending, a blended motor fuel containing ethyl alcohol derived from agricultural products is blended with petrol specifically.
  • High in oxygen content– Ethanol is high in oxygen content, allowing an engine to combust fuel more thoroughly. (Ethanol blending)

Ethanol Blended with Petrol (EBP) programme:

  • EBP programme was launched by the government in 2003 to promote the use of alternative and environmentally friendly fuels.
  • This intervention also aimed to reduce import dependency for energy requirements, and give boost to the agriculture sector (supply of straw, additional income to farmers).
  • Oil marketing companies (OMCs) were mandated to sell ethanol-blended petrol with percentage of ethanol up to 10 per cent.
    • The government allowed procurement of ethanol produced from non-food feed stocks, like cellulosic and ligno-cellulosic materials, including petrochemical route.
  • Ligno-cellulosic materials: It describes the main constituents in most plants, namely cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin. Lignocellulose is a complex matrix, comprising many different polysaccharides, phenolic polymers and proteins.
    • Cellulose, the major component of cell walls of land plants, is a glucan polysaccharide containing large reservoirs of energy that provide real potential for conversion into biofuels.
    • It is the non-starch based fibrous part of plant material.

Advantages of E20 fuel

  • Environmentally friendly: Pointing out that vehicular emissions such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) are currently under regulation in India.
    • Ethanol blended gasoline decreases these emissions.
  • Cost savings: About 85% of India’s fuel needs are met by imports.
    • The use of petrol with a 20% ethanol mix in India would result in significant cost savings for the nation.
  • Employment generation: When innovative technologies are put into practice, new employment possibilities emerge.
    • New positions will be created in the original equipment manufacturing (OEM) sector, as well as in the component supplier and aftermarket service provider sectors.
  • Benefit to agriculture: India’s government believes that reaching its goal of 20% ethanol in gasoline would benefit the country’s agricultural industry.
    • The government asserts that farmers’ incomes would rise because of these measures.


  • Consumer acceptance: Consumer acceptance of new technology is subject to be tested.
    • The anxiety about using new technology will remain a concern.
  • Huge investment: A new technology implementation on a mass scale certainly requires a huge sum of investment from the industry stakeholders.
    • After spending a huge amount of money on BS-VI migration from BS-IV in record time, it will be hard for the auto industry stakeholders to invest another huge sum.
  • Farmers acceptance: Farmers who have been traditionally farming sugarcanes can be benefitted from the strategy.
    • However, it is hard to believe that a large scale of farmers will opt for sugarcane farming, which is the main ingredient for ethanol production.
  • Timeframe: With the Covid-19 and subsequent troubling situations disrupting the auto industry operations, achieving the target by the set deadline could be a challenge.

Present utilisation of E20 Fuels in India:

  • India’s Creta, Venue, and Alcazar SUVs from Hyundai Motor are said to be capable of running on E20 gasoline as of the 2023 MY model year.
  • Tata Motors debuted two new turbocharged petrol engine sat the Auto Expo 2023. (1.2-litre and 1.5-litre).
  • Tata has stated that its vehicles longer than 4 meters will soon be equipped with E20 fuel-compatible engines.
  • Similar developments are planned for vehicles manufactured by Mahindra, Maruti Suzuki, Kia, and others.

Way Forward

India being a large agricultural economy, there is a large amount of agricultural residues available; therefore, the scope of producing biofuels is immense in the country. Biofuels can help in rural and agricultural development in the form of new cash crops.

Handloom Sector in India


  • Mains – GS 3 (Economy)

Context: PM Modi recently addressed the ninth National Handloom Day in Delhi in order to promote India’s rich heritage of handloom.

  • The theme of the National Handloom Day 2023 is “Handlooms for Sustainable Fashion”, focusing on the sustainable and environmentally beneficial alternative to machine-made fabrics.

Handloom Sector in India

  • The greatest cottage industry in the nation is the handloom industry.
    • It is the second biggest employer in the rural area.
  • A total of 35, 22,512-handloom workers were employed nationwide as per Handloom Census 2019–20.
  • Women make up the majority of the workforce in this sector, accounting for 72.29% of all handloom employees.
  • Production of hand-woven fabric from India constitutes 95 per cent of the global production.

Significance of the sector:

  • Women empowerment: Apart from being a significant employment source in rural areas, the handloom sector is also a key player in the field of women empowerment as roughly 70 percent of all weavers and allied workers are women.
  • Exports: The Indian handloom sector exports its products to more than 20 countries across the globe, including the USA, the UK, Germany, France, and South Africa.
  • Handloom weaving community: The National Handloom Day is celebrated to honour the handloom weaving community and to highlight the contribution of the community in various sectors of the country, including rural employment.
  • Protection of India’s rich handloom heritage: The day also stands for the protection of India’s rich handloom heritage and to empower the handloom community with bigger and better opportunities.

Problems in the industry:

  • The lack of effective policy support: Combined with the fragmented nature of the sector has given rise to many problems.
  • Weaver and supply chain problems: Most of the problems concerning the sector can be broadly categorised into weaver and supply chain problems.
  • Lack of financial viability: According to the Handloom Census, approximately 67 per cent of the weavers still earn less than 5,000 a month, which is less than the amount that an unskilled worker earns as per the minimum wage rule.
  • Handing the tradition over: Existing weavers are not showing an interest in handing the tradition over to their next generations.
  • Indirect sources of credit: Most of the weavers depend on indirect sources of credit with high rates of interest. This is due to the low penetration of banking facilities among the weaver community.
  • Fewer profits: The price fluctuations in the open market eat up the profit margins of the weavers.

Govt. Schemes for Handloom Sector

  • Handloom Weavers’ Comprehensive Welfare Scheme: Weavers Comprehensive Welfare Scheme (HWCWS) is providing life, accidental and disability insurance coverage under the components
  • Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY): In order to support operations, the initiative provides small businesses with loans upto Rs. 10 lakhs.
  • The National Handloom Development Programme (NHDP) aims to provide handloom weavers with financial assistance so they can advance their technology, market their products, and nurture their abilities.
  • Micro and small businesses’ Credit Guarantee Fund Trust (CGTMSE): This initiative intends to provide operating cash and term loans to micro and small businesses without the need for collateral.
  • The Yarn Supply Scheme: With partial modification, it is renamed as Raw Material Supply Scheme (RMSS) and has been approved for implementation during the period from 2021-22 to 2025-26.

Way Forward:

National Handloom Day serves as a reminder of the invaluable contribution of the handloom sector to India’s cultural heritage and rural livelihoods. The Government of India’s interventions play a crucial role in supporting and empowering handloom weavers and allied workers. By continuing to invest in skill development, infrastructure, and marketing opportunities, India can preserve its handloom heritage while ensuring a sustainable and prosperous future for the weaver community.
