Centre assures funds for textile park in Arunachal Pradesh

The Centre has promised to make funds available to Arunachal Pradesh to facilitate establishment of a textile park in the state. Union textile minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar gave this assurance to the State Deputy Chief Minister Kameng Dolo yesterday. Stating that the state government would be informed as and when the proposal would be cleared by the ministry, the minister asked the State government to submit a detailed project report (DPR) at the earliest.

Gangwar also informed that he would be visiting the state next month to inaugurate a garment manufacturing unit at Pasighat in East Siang district. During his visit, the union minister said, he would announce some developmental packages for the state in the textile and handloom sectors. During the meeting, Dolo, who also holds the Textile and Handicrafts portfolio, expressed the State’s willingness to establish weaver service centre in Itanagar so that poor weavers of Arunachal are benefited. At present, the Weaver Service Centre at Guwahati has been providing services to the state. Manipur and Nagaland too have such centres.

The deputy CM said permission for single brand under 'Make in India' program has been obtained from the IKEA, a Sweden-based company, for bamboo products. Dolo also urged the Union minister to clear all the pending proposals lying with the ministry. In his reply, Gangwar said the ministry would release the second instalment under North Eastern Textile Promotion Schemes shortly after completing the required formalities.
