He assured the investors that the state government would extend all possible support for modernization of the textile industry in the state.
 
Mr. Chaturvedi said the state government is currently offering a number of incentives for setting up of small and medium textile units, including a 75 percent subsidy on total premium of land.
 
He said an apparel complex has started functioning at Pardeshipura in Indore, and the government is now upgrading the existing apparel clusters at Jabalpur and Indore.
