Delhi to have fashion hub
Jan '10
The Government of the state of Delhi, in the first of its kind in 27 years, has announced an industrial policy which is expected to revolutionise Delhi's industrial scene in sectors as varied as education, fashion designing, financial services and IT.

According to Chief Secretary, Rakesh Mehta, “The aim of the policy is to encourage clean, knowledge-based industries as since we last framed the policy, 80 per cent of Delhi's industries dealt in manufacturing and only 20 per cent in services, which is the other way round now.”

With regards to promoting and boosting fashion based companies, all manufacturing units of all Delhi designers, spread across the city at present, will soon have a dedicated space with specific infrastructure required by them.

Delhi will also have its own fashion, technology and design park. The garment, furniture and handloom industry will also be brought together in one cluster. High-end apparel and fashion clothing outlets are also expected to move in to this cluster.

As of now there are only two other states which have a dedicated fashion hub. Puducherry, which boasts of a fashion city and Mohali in Punjab which has a fashion technology park.
