The Jute Corporation of India Limited (JCI) was created in the year 1971 with the primary objective of strengthening the jute sector by protecting the interest of the jute growers who are mostly marginal farmers. Over the years, the Corporation has carved out a niché for itself by effectively implementing the scheme of Minimum Support Price (MSP) as well as developmental projects of the Ministry of Textiles for the Jute Farmers. However, with the changing business needs, the Corporation underwent a business process restructuring as per the recommendations of M/s Deloitte.
The Corporation is going through a phase of transformation and is also prepared to adopt the best practices of other successful Public Sector Enterprises in its endeavour to move on to the next level. In this journey, JCI has already introduced certain innovations like geo-mapping of jute growing areas with the assistance of ISRO, introduction of Jute Pass Book for individual farmers to eliminate middlemen and so on.
The Corporation has also brought focus in marketing of Jute Diversified Products, Jute Geo-Textiles as well as Jute Agro Textiles. This is expected to spur demand of diversified Jute goods and thereby the Jute Economy as a whole.
I would like to extend my best wishes to JCI family, and am confident that the concerted efforts of each one of us would result in continuous improvement in smooth and streamlined operations as well as efficient financial, administrative and personnel management, in line with the our mission & vision.
