West Bengal to roll out incentives for textile parks

West Bengal is looking setting up a dozen textile parks. The state hopes to emerge as a major textile hub. These parks would be provided land, infrastructure, single window clearance, environment compliant infrastructure, power, apart from a host of subsides (capital, land, stamp duty, labor, power etc).

With time West Bengal hopes to be a leading destination for globally competitive value-added textiles like readymade garments, processed power loom and knitted fabrics, technical textiles and apparel products for both domestic and international markets. The textile parks envisage a space of 22.7 million sq. ft. The government has received ‘Expressions of Interest’ for more than 50 per cent of the space offered.

West Bengal has many manufacturers, but there is no major brand except a few. The retail sector needs to be standardised. To provide an enabling ecosystem to support and nurture start-ups in the state, West Bengal has also launched the state start-up policy.

Bangladesh is planning to shift a large distribution depot from Gujarat to West Bengal. Industry has been invited to come forward and assist the government in achieving the desired goal with suggestions and ideas. Every plan and program will be institutionalised so that the process is not disturbed in future.
