Welcome to Carpet Export Promotion Council

It is an official body of handmade carpet exporters for promotion of exports from country and projected India's “Make in India” image abroad as a reliable supplier of high quality handmade carpet products. CEPC therefore, helps in R & D, quality assurance, timely delivery of finished products across the globe in addition to skill enhancement of weavers / artisans / entrepreneurs, strengthening base in existing markets, identifying potential markets, educating about government policies and its compliances, providing assistance for brand building of Indian hand-made carpets, through publicity, participating in and organizing world renowned trade fairs, expositions and road shows etc around the word in established markets. Also exploring potential and upcoming markets globally for promotion of Indian handmade carpets, rugs floor coverings etc.
Chairman's Message
It is high time that few realize the adverse impact of duty discrimination prevailing within Textiles Sector, which is one of the strategic and labour intensive sectors. The duty bias has been one of the factors discouraging the Indian handmade carpet sector to attain its potential production and growth in exports. Further the high fiscal burden and difference in duty structure has been restricting many from going for new applications and product development.
Few hope bold policy initiatives will be taken by the Government to boost growth of this sector. Otherwise, the Indian Handmade Carpet Industry will not be able to sustain the growth of exports to achieve the desired export targets.
