The package will be applicable to both new textile enterprises as well as to existing textile units that plan to invest in modernization, expansion or diversification.
The sops to the textile industry would include VAT reimbursement, subsidy and interest-waiver.
The Cabinet meeting also cleared setting up a Petroleum University in the state on public-private partnership (PPP) basis, in order to make available manpower and technical know-how for the upcoming petrochemical complex at Pachpadra in Barmer district.
