The government of Maharashtra is working towards making a special policy to address the issues in the six integrated districts of the Vidarbha region to promote cotton production, as per media reports.

The Vidarbha region comprises India's largest growing cotton area which includes Nagpur, Akola, Yavatmal, Washim, Wardha, and Amravati districts. The state government is expected to spend Rs 2,000 crore as a part of the farm-to-fashion drive in the region.

For the year 2016-2017 the state government of Maharashtra plans to allocate a budget specially to promote cotton based industries in the region, which includes spinning mills in Akola, Yavatmal, Washim, and Buldhana, and deal with the socio-economic issues in the region.

The government also plans to turn Amravati district into an international textile hub and will combine three departments of agriculture, finance, and textile under this ambitious project. 500 hectares of land for building a textile hub at Nandgaon has been approved and has received proposal from eight players. The plan of setting up cotton procurement centres in cities like Nagpur and Aurangabad is also under consideration by the state government. (HO)
