Maharashtra to replicate cooperative model in cotton belt

Nov '09
The Government of Maharashtra in a bid to stem the high rate of suicides in the cotton growing belt of Vidharbha is planning to replicate the highly successful model of sugar cooperatives which had helped farmers increase their living standards.

The textile department plans to set up eight technology parks, six in the Vidarbha region and two in Marathwada, each spread over four to five acres. These parks will include the cotton farmers of the two regions in each and every activity.

On the lines of cooperatives, the farmers will be made members of the cotton cooperatives, spinning mills and power looms, which will be set up in these proposed parks, and will also receive an assured price as well as a share in profits.

The state government is envisaging its own textile policy which will have a ninety day deadline and these textile parks are proposed to be set up under this new policy. The powerloom and silk sericulture industry will also be able to avail benefits.

A state government official disclosed that the parks could be set up with 100% private sector contribution or it could be public-private partnership, but the objective is to ensure that the cotton farmers receives benefits from the same.
