Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

The In­dian state of Gu­jarat, a fa­mous tex­tile hub, is now up­ping its ante in ap­parel man­u­fac­tur­ing also. The State Gov­ern­ment, too, is do­ing its bit to help drive the trans­for­ma­tion of the state into a gar­ment hub.

Step­ping up its sup­port to the ap­parel sec­tor, the Gu­jarat Gov­ern­ment has de­cided to con­struct in­dus­trial sheds for the ap­parel in­dus­try at 12 lo­ca­tions across the state.

“The sheds will be open for mi­cro, small, medium and even large en­ter­prises,” D Thara, Vice Chair­man and Manag­ing Direc­tor of Gu­jarat In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (GIDC) re­port­edly told me­dia.

Most of the de­mand (for sheds), ac­cord­ing to Thara, is from places like An­klesh­war, Su­rat, Bhav­na­gar, Bar­doli and Kath­wada, while other lo­ca­tions where the ap­parel sec­tor might grow in­clude Vapi, Nar­oda, Hansalpur and Suren­drana­gar.

Markedly, the en­vis­aged sheds will be multi-storey build­ings built on plug-and-use model. And the units will only have to in­stall their ma­chin­ery and equip­ment to com­mence op­er­a­tions right away.
