The Tamil Nadu government has issued an order on providing subsidy of Rs 2.5 crore to set up mini textile parks in Karur. The government would either bear 50 per cent of the cost for building basic infrastructure in the park such as laying of roads, setting up of sewage treatment plant and captive power plant, training centre or offer subsidy to the maximum of Rs 2.5 crore to the manufacturers.
