One garment unit to be set up in each of Indian NE states

Dec '14
All of the eight Northeastern states in India, which missed the fruits of industrial revolution, are all set to have one garment manufacturing unit in each of their capitals.

Entrepreneurs hailing from these eight states and with a background in textiles will get an opportunity to manage these apparel units under a new model initiated by the union government.

Under the new policy, the central government will finance the cost of 300 stitching machines for each of these units, while state governments will provide 1.5 acres of land, nearby or in their respective capital cities.

To begin with, these units in addition to producing school uniforms will also manufacture uniforms for the paramilitary forces deployed in the states, local police force, state government officials, etc.

The buildings, machineries, etc will be owned jointly by the concerned state governments and the central government.

In addition, the entrepreneurs will receive assistance from the central government in selection of officials for administration, operations, IT and finance.

The Textiles Ministry will nominate one of its senior officials who will be selecting the entrepreneur as well as be associated with the management of the unit.

Once all the apparel production facilities are up and running at full capacity, together they will be employing around 11,200-12,000 people. (AR)
