Uploaded on September 2007


Wind cheater is a special type of garment generally used as an outerwear. This is usually made from synthetic cloth as this is very simple to wash. It is very useful for the two wheeler riders in order to get protection from chilly cold weather and dust from pre-summer. It also serves the purpose of guarding the main formal dress from soiling. Wind cheaters are easily washable as these are made from water repellent synthetic fabrics. It is preferred that unit should manufacture wind cheaters of different colours so as to attract different customers.

Market Potential

At present these products are mostly manufactured in Delhi, and adjacent areas. Earlier, the raw material required for this product was not easily available and due to this, few units were established to manufacture this outerwear. As this product was also not very popular to the consumers, the units are mostly confined in selected places to fulfil the demand. Now-a-days young people use it as a protective clothing from chilly weather and dust. The demand for this product is significantly increasing. Hence, units for the manufacture of wind cheaters can be set up in different areas.

This project is based on single shift basis and 300 working days in a year. The time for achieving maximum capacity utilisation is considered from 3rd year from the date on which the production is started. Buildling is considered of its own. Costs of machinery and equipment/material indicated refer to a particular make and approximate to those prevailing at the time of preparation of this project.

Cost of installation and electrification is taken @ 10% of cost of machinery and equipment.
