Perfect Sourcing - - Inside -

The Gu­jarat state govern­ment in In­dia will cre­ate in­dus­trial sheds for the ap­parel in­dus­try at 12 lo­ca­tions. A need for 6.5 mil­lion square feet has been es­ti­mated after get­ting re­sponse to ex­pres­sion of in­ter­est is­sued by the state govern­ment and the Gar­ment Man­u­fac­tur­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dia (GMAI). The multi-storey sheds will fol­low the ‘plug and use’ model.

The state feels this sec­tor has the po­ten­tial to gen­er­ate jobs, es­pe­cially in smaller cities and towns. Most de­mand for such sheds is from An­klesh­war, Su­rat, Bhav­na­gar, Bar­doli and Kath­wada, ac­cord­ing to D Thara, vice chair­man and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Gu­jarat In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (GIDC). In the ‘plug and use’ model units have to just bring in their ma­chines and start op­er­a­tions. These will be open to all kinds of en­ter­prises ir­re­spec­tive of size.
