Growth of jute industry in india

The 1st jute mill in India was established by George Acland, an Englishman. The jute spinning machinery was set up in Rishra near Serampore and it was known as the Rishra Twine and Yarn Mills Limited. From these small beginnings the Indian jute industry marched ahead. In 1918 and 1939, both the World War I and II resulted in the boom of the Indian jute industry.
