In the first stage of 1984, when ministries were reforming, the jute division and commerce division have been separated from industry and commerce ministry, and reform as a separate ministry by name Textile & Jute ministry. Actually by the cabinet divisions notice at 8 July in 1986, these two ministries had started their activities as independent ministries. Therefore an ordinance has been enforced at 6 may in 2004 to unify Textile ministry and Jute ministry as Textile & Jute ministry. After this, Textiles and Jute Ministry has been started its activities again.
