Union textiles minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given special attention to the ministry of textiles, with special focus on the north eastern region. The apparel and garment making centres were being opened in every state in the region, as part of the landmark initiative announced by the PM in Nagaland on December 1, 2014, he said.

Gangwar’s comments came while laying the foundation stone for an apparel and garment making centre at Paschim Borgaon, Guwahati along with Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi on May 19, according to an official statement.

Gangwar said work on such a centre for Nagaland has already begun, after he laid the foundation stone last February. The minister laid the foundation stone for similar centres in Manipu and Sikkim in March.

He thanked the state government of Assam for responding positively and for promptly providing the required land for the project.

In his address, Gogoi said that geotextiles would be very useful for Assam and assured the initiative of his government’s support.

The project will be completed in three months by NBCC; the total cost of the project would be Rs 18 crore, fully funded by the central government

Textile secretary SK Panda said that this project will be helpful in skill upgradation, garment development and marketing. The secretary added that a scheme, worth Rs 427 crore, has been sanctioned to promote geotechnical textiles in the North East, which will be helpful in stabilizing roads, addressing the problem of landslides and preserving water bodies.
