The paper industry in India is more than a century old. Commercial production of paper started as early as 1879. Limitations with respect to forest-based raw materials forced the Indian paper industry, in these early stages of its development, to utilise non-conventional materials, such as straw, bagasse, and textile material. India was the first country in the world to have a paper mill relying entirely on bamboo as its primary fibre. The use of non-conventional raw materials was strongly supported by the Indian government (RAO 1989). Around 1950 waste paper was also introduced as a raw material for the production of paper.
