A small- and medium-scale tex­tile park is likely to come up in Te­lan­gana soon. This has been pro­posed by Te­lan­gana State In­dus­trial In­fra­struc­ture Cor­po­ra­tion (TSIIC). The un­der con­sid­er­a­tion park is likely to be housed at Pendyala village of Jana­gaon Dis­trict.

The move is aimed to boost the tex­tile in­dus­try in the state in­clud­ing the Mi­cro, Small and Medium En­ter­prises (MSMEs). The es­tab­lish­ment of such a fa­cil­ity will en­cour­age re­verse mi­gra­tion of weavers from tex­tile man­u­fac­tur­ing hubs such as Su­rat, Bhi­wandi and So­la­pur to their home state.

At the meet­ing, the tex­tile en­trepreneurs were as­sured of land al­lot­ment and were asked to in­crease the pro­duc­tion of home tex­tile prod­ucts such as bed­sheets and home li­nen, like So­la­pur. Ad­di­tion­ally, spe­cial sub­si­dies and in­cen­tives are likely to be an­nounced for the tex­tile parks and clus­ters spread over 50-100 acres of land, an­nounced Cor­po­ra­tion Chair­man Gyadari Bala­mallu at a meet­ing with the tex­tile in­dus­try stake­hold­ers re­cently.

Bala­mallu also re­vealed that the Govern­ment is mulling to of­fer res­i­den­tial fa­cil­ity within the premise to ac­com­mo­date work­ers at these units in the vicin­ity to save time. Fur­ther, the TSIIC Chair­man re­vealed that the mega tex­tile park at Kakatiya, to be set up at a cost of Rs. 11,000 crore un­der a pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship, would be open to ex­pan­sion based on the de­mand from the tex­tile in­dus­try.
