Jute Mill of Nagaon

Last Updated on: April 04, 2022


Assam is the second largest jute producing state in India. Assam produces a huge amount  of jute. Assam alone produces 1.6 million bales of jute. Nagaon, Goalpara, Barpeta and Darrang Districts are the main jute-producing district of Assam. Based on the raw material alone it is estimated that Assam can run about 15 jute mills in the state. But because of several problems like lack of infrastructural facilities, capita and entrepreneurship there is few jute mills in Assam. In 1970, Co-operative Jute Mill was established at Silghat of Nagaon district in Assam. This full-fledged jute mill was a major producer of jute in Assam. In 1970, this mill started its commercial production. In 1971-72, this jute mill produced 729 tones of jute products. After that total production of this jute mill was increased to 4299 tones in 1979 and then to 5951 tones in 1981. Total production of jute products has further increased to 6 thousand tones in 1982 and then it declined to 5.0 thousand tones in 1994. With the development of agriculture and industry in Assam, the need for jute goods, especially gunny bags andThe Assam Co-operative Jute Mills Ltd. is situated on the south bank of the river Brahmaputra at Silghat in the Nagaon district of Assam, located at about a distance of 8 km from Jakhalabandha. This is the only Jute Mill in the Country in Co-operative Sector. It was registered in the year 1959 under the Assam Co-operative Societies Act and after much struggle it was commissioned in the year 19'70 with the initial investment of Rs. 150 lakh. But, the Mill after running for about 14 years in rough weather had to close during March 1984 for acute financial crisis and other infrastructural problems and remain closed for about 2 years.




Again, the Mill was reopened on 1st January 1986, under the terms of the Historic Assam Accord with the financial assistance from the Central Govt. as well as State Govt. But, in spite of sufficient Govt. assistance, financial depression developed again due to imbalance in the income and the expenditure. However, after continuous struggle and efforts, the Mill has started improving its economy from the year 1992-93 and since then making continuous progressive net profits. Now, the Mill is completely free from all loans and liabilities and now it is in a stable economic position.

The Mill is implementing the scheme for renovation/modernization of its plant &machinery from its own resources to increase capacity utilization and quality improvement of its product.

The achievements of Assam Co-operative Jute Mills Limited have been ranging in all spheres of activities.
