Amravati to be made international textile centre: Fadnavis

The Maharashtra state government wants to make Amravati an international textile centre, with many textile and spinning centres in the adjoining districts in Vidarbha. This was disclosed by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis during bhoomipujan of Gimatex Industries' first Integrated Textile Park in Vidarbha and new extended spinning unit at Hinganghat.
 
“We want to make Amravati the international textile centre and the adjoining districts in Vidarbha will have many textile and spinning centres. Every unit will pave way for ally and ancillary operations providing new avenues of work to local youth,” Fadnavis said.
 
He said more textile hubs will have to be established across the state and Vidarbha region be made its epicenter so all cotton grown in the area is procured and processed within the state.
 
“At present, only 25 per cent of the cotton produced is being processed. There is huge potential for textile growth as 75 per cent of the cotton available remains untapped and under-utilised in industrial sectors,” the chief minister said.
 
Besides Amravati, Yavatmal, Chikli, Kannad, Bhaler, Kunnor, Jamner, Selu, Mazalgaon and Malegaon are also earmarked for setting up textile centres or its related units.
 
Fadnavis congratulated the Mohota family of Gimatex Industries for their initiative to set up the first Integrated Textile Park in the state. The park will generate about 2,500 jobs and would also increase the use of locally-produced cotton. (RKS)
