    Production of garments through power loom is mainly done in the Tanda area of Ambedkar Nagar. For about 50 years, almost every family in Tanda is associated with this work in one way or the other. Powerloom – textile production provides employment to around 43000 artisans.


    Ambedkar Nagar district is a district in the Faizabad division of Uttar Pradesh. This district was created on September 29, 1995 and was named in memory of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, who worked for the advancement of the deprived classes, women and other weaker sections of society. Ambedkar Nagar is famous for its textile industry especially Tanda terracotta. Here, the main business depends on hand loom and power loom cloths. Shirting cloths, interlining cloths, lungi, gamcha, arabic roomal, etc. are produced in these clusters which are available in wide range and at competitive rates. The cloths of Tanda are now exported. There is very good potential for self-employment in the power loom industry of the district. The district also has a thermal power station, sugar plant and cement manufacturing plant.
