Telangana state officials visit textile hub of Surat

A five member team of the Telangana government visited the textile hub of Surat on January 3 as part of its exercise to study the textile industry across major textile hubs in India.

Led by Warangal MP Kadiam Srihari and other officials, they visited an Integrated Textile Park in Surat and also met textile entrepreneurs hailing from the Telangana region.

As previously reported by fibre2fashion, the Telangana government intends to set up an Integrated Textile Park in the district of Warangal.

Srihari had earlier said that a land survey in Hanamkonda, Hasanparthy and Geesugonda mandals has already been done and around 1,899 acres has been identified in the three mandals for the project.

The team also studied the Surat wholesale markets and also learnt about policies and support provided to the textile industry by the Gujarat government.

After visiting various facilities, the team was of the opinion that there was a big potential to set up a Textile Park in Warangal.

According to them, availability of good quality cotton and ginning facilities could provide a strong base for setting up cotton processing facilities in the district.

As per estimates, there were over 300,000 persons from Telangana in Gujarat, of which 200,000 alone are in Surat and working in the textile sector.

Many of them have now set up their own textile units and according to the visiting delegation, have expressed their desire to relocate to Warangal if the textile sector is given an impetus.

The team would submit a final report along with recommendations to the chief minister for freezing plans for the Warangal Textile Park. (AR)
