Perfect Sourcing - - India News -

Ma­ha­rash­tra’s In­dus­tries min­is­ter Sub­hash Ra­jaram Desai proudly an­nounces the plan to set up nine tex­tile parks in the north­ern cot­ton grow­ing re­gion of the state to sup­ple­ment farmer’s in­come through value added prod­ucts. At the Pro­ges­sive Ma­ha­rasthra sum­mit or­gan­ised by the Fed­er­a­tion of In­dian cham­bers of com­merce and in­dus­tries cit­ing the ex­am­ple of the tex­tile park at Am­ra­vati, which has over 30 units op­er­a­tional, Desai said value ad­di­tion will help farm­ers get a good price for cot­ton, Desai made the an­nounce­ment. He said farm­ing needs to be made more vi­able and sus­tain­able and loan waivers for debt-ridden farm­ers were not a good so­lu­tion. The gov­ern­ment is also work­ing on a new food pro­cess­ing pol­icy, he said. A spe­cial plat­form called ‘Maitri’, which brings 18 de­part­ments to­gether, can be used by any­one who wants to in­vest in the state and ex­pects quick clear­ances, Desai added.
