Farrukhabad in Uttar Pradesh is famous for textile printing. The Indian Industries Association (IIA), the micro, small and medium enterprises body urged state government to set up a textile park in Farrukhabad district.

Another textile park similar to Farrukhabad will also be located near Harpur, a place in western Uttar Pradesh and the textiles ministry is ready to fund 40 percent of the total project cost.
