West Bengal to get two new jute parks this year

Jul '12
It is proposed to set up two new jute parks in West Bengal, a state to the east of India, by close of the current year, Jute Commissioner in the Central Textiles Ministry and National Jute Board Secretary, Mr. Atri Bhattacharya, has said.
 
The two parks would be set up at Shaktigarh in Burdwan district and Raniganj in North Dinajpur district of the state, the official said while speaking on sidelines of an event organized in Kolkata by the Bharat Chamber of Commerce.
 
The two jute parks in West Bengal would form part of the four parks that the Textile Ministry intends to set up under the Jute Technology Mission.
 
The other two parks – to be set up in Silchar in Assam and Purnea in Bihar – are also expected to go functional by end of the current fiscal.
 
Establishment of these four parks would entail an initial infrastructural investment of about Rs. 500 million, Mr. Bhattacharya said.
 
He said that India achieved good jute production last year, owing to favourable weather and availability of seeds. However, delayed rains are likely to negatively impact the current year’s production, he added.
 
Normally, jute sowing commences by March-end and goes on till May-end. Hot and humid weather with rains at regular intervals are a pre-requisite for jute cultivation.
 
As West Bengal has not received adequate rains till now, jute production is likely to be impacted this year, he said.
