Ahmedabad was on a spectacular rise as one of the world’s prime cotton manufacturing places.
Later on, the first and second world wars, the Swadeshi movement by Mahatama Gandhi and industrial grants propelled the growth of industry on a large scale. The number of mills drastically increased. Nearly two-thirds of the total cotton production in India comes from states of Maharashtra, Gujrat, Andra Pradesh and Telengana. India contributes around 26% of the total global harvested cotton.
