Prime Minister Narendra Modi to inaugurate first PM MITRA Textile Park


On February 22, 2024, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to inaugurate the groundbreaking ceremony for India's inaugural PM Mega Integrated Textile Regions and Apparel (MITRA) Park in Vansi Borsi village, Navsari, Gujarat.  

The initiative aims to bolster the textile sector, according to Ramesh Vaghasia, President, Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry. 

Covering 1,100-1,200 acre in Vansi Borsi village, Navsari, the 'PM MITRA' Park is poised to create numerous job opportunities, thereby enhancing Gujarat's economic landscape and aligning with the government's vision of 'Viksit Bharat'.

Emphasising on the benefits of the 'PM MITRA' Park for Navsari, Surat, and Gujarat as a whole, Vaghasia notes, the park would invigorate the textile industry by improving infrastructure, promoting sustainable practices, expanding market access, and contributing significantly to Gujarat's economy.

Last year, the central government unveiled plans to establish seven 'PM MITRA' Parks nationwide, spanning Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Maharashtra. These parks signify a significant stride towards positioning India as a global textile manufacturing and export hub.

These initiatives are expected to elevate the competitiveness of the textile industry, attract international investors, foster innovation, and stimulate job growth. The Ministry of Textiles will oversee the implementation of these projects, selected through meticulous evaluation based on criteria such as connectivity, existing ecosystems, industry policy, infrastructure, and utility services, with the PM Gati Shakti-National Master Plan for Multi-modal Connectivity validating the chosen sites.
