Uttar Pradesh to introduce new textile policy for attracting investments


The Uttar Pradesh government plans to introduce a new textile policy to boost investment and increase employment generation capacity in the state.

The state has initiated the process of acquiring land for the establishment of Mega Integrated Textile and Apparel Park in Harodi under the PM Mitra Scheme of the Union Textiles Ministry.

The government also plans to set up an apparel park in Noida with an investment of Rs 3,000 crore. Land for developing the park has been arranged. The apparel park will house about 115 export-oriented textile units with an investment of Rs 3,000 crore, which is likely to provide employment to about two lakh persons.

The policy says that this region is full of skilled weavers but the irony is that because of Banarasi silk saris, the focus is only on Varanasi thus pushing the weavers of other regions into an unorganized sector.
