Telangana may get small- and medium-scale textile park soon
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.
