CMD's Message

Pradeep Kumar Agarwal
Chairman-Cum-Managing Director


CCI is the central agency of the Government of India under Ministry of Textiles for undertaking Minimum Support Price (MSP) Operations of seed cotton (Kapas), whenever the prices of kapas fall below the MSP level. Besides MSP operations, to fulfill the raw material requirement of the domestic textile industry, CCI also undertakes viable commercial operation as and when required.

Over the years, technology up-gradations and innovations have always had a profound effect on society and organizations. The application of innovations in the realm of communication and IT has fundamentally transformed the way organizations function and interface with their stakeholders. The Internet and Web technologies have compressed this world into a global village. Today, the cardinal rule for the businesses is – “Deliver goods or services with maximum speed and efficiency”.

We, at the Cotton Corporation of India, have always realized that the Corporation needs to move with the times. Rapidly changing world is throwing up new challenges and new opportunities. I am confident that the CCI will seize these opportunities and scale new goals in coming years with speed and efficiency leaving no space for doubts or delay.

CCI has always welcomed and embraced progressive developments in all fields, i.e. commercial, technological, human resource development, financial, etc. CCI initiated the process of integrating IT with its business functions and has always ensured that the organization remained abreast with the latest IT technologies. To move ahead in this direction, CCI has developed a mobile app ‘Cott-Ally’ exclusively for cotton farmers to given them the authentic source of information regarding all government schemes related to cotton and information on best farm practices for sustainable production of good quality contaminant-free cotton to maximize the farm income.

In our quest to upgrade ourselves continuously and reap the benefits of integration of IT with communication facilities, CCI updated its website frequently so as to provide an updated on-line information about cotton sector domestically and internationally in general and CCI in particular to our various stakeholders.

In coming years, we shall constantly improve the core competitiveness of the corporation and shall dedicate ourselves to the promotion and fulfillment of social responsibility in the pursuit of sustainable development in cotton sector.
