Mizoram is now on the textile map of India after textiles minister Santosh Gangwar laid the foundation stone of Apparel and Garment Making Centre in Aizawl, according to a government  statement. 
 
Addressing the gathering at the function, Gangwar said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given special attention to the textiles ministry with special focus on the north eastern region. The Apparel and Garment Making Centres are being opened in every state of the north eastern region as part of the landmark initiative announced by the Prime Minister in December 2014. 
 
The minister said that the centre will be the beginning of setting up an organized industry in Mizoram. He also said that this is in line with the Prime Minister's vision of “Sabke Saath Sab ka Vikas”. 
 
Apparel and Garment Manufacturing Centres have been set up earlier thos year in all other seven states of the northeast. This initiative comes under the North East Region Textile Promotion Scheme (NERTPS) of the textiles ministry. 
 
NERTPS is an umbrella scheme for the development of various segments of textiles, i.e. silk, handlooms, handicrafts and garments. Of the total outlay of Rs 1038.10 crore, Rs 18.9 crore has been given to Mizoram for setting up of this centre where the state government provides 1.5 acre of land free of cost. The centre will be managed by the textiles ministry for 5 years and will be handed over to the state government thereafter.  (SH)
