This was stated by Thiru Dayanidhi Maran while inaugurating Dodballapur Integrated Textile Park at Benguluru. The Minister said the Park will serve as a benchmark for others in this respect. Establishment of modern weaving units for this Park will serve as a model for power loom sector entreprenefurs in Doddaballapur cluster in particular and in Karnataka in general.

The Park set up in an area of 48 acres at a cost of Rs. 85 crores and will attract an investment of Rs.200 crore and annually produce textile products worth Rs. 350 crore, and more importantly, will provide employment to 4000 people said Thiru Maran. Seven units out of envisaged 84 units of weaving, sizing and warping are operational as of now. With the revcovery of the economy and improvement in the investment climate, Thiru Maran expected more units to become operational soon.

Thiru Maran said that in August, 2005, the Government came out with the Scheme for Integrated Textile Park (SITP) to supplement the efforts of the industry by providing state of the art infrastructure facilities in textile growth centres. Forty Parks have been sanctioned throughout the country and Dodballapur is one such Park. 21 Parks, out of these 40, are operational and it is expected that the remaining Parks will also commence production shortly. On completion, all these Parks are expected to have an investment of Rs. 20,000 crore and provide employment to 5 lakh people. Thiru Maran further stated that there has been a huge demand for these Parks and the Government is actively considering setting up of a few more Parks shortly.

Thiru Maran said that his Ministry had taken several measures to assist the Textile Industry, including small scale, power loom and handloom sectors. Giving details of the initiatives, Thiru Maran said that the Textile Ministry has recently released subsidy of Rs. 912 crore to 7383 beneficiaries within 3 working days under the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS). A draft National Fibre Policy with an objective to provide level playing field for harmonious growth of different textile sectors has been placed recently in the public domain for their comments. The long-standing demand of the silk industry for inclusion of sericulture and allied activities within the Central Government' Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY) for various benefits at par with Agriculture Industry has been announced. Central Silk Board, Bengalure in association with Indian Space Research Organisation intends to take up Remote Sensing Imagery rogramme in eight sericulture districts to assess mulberry acreage in the country, Thiru Maran added.

Presiding over the function Dr.M. Veerappa Moily, Minister for Law and Justice said that there is a need for a special package to solve the problems faced by handloom and powerloom weavers from Doddaballapur. He said that the employment opportunities in the textile industry is huge and a similar Park can be set up in the North Karnataka region. He expressed gratitude to Thiru Maran for announcing that the Second Skill Development Centre would be set up in Chikballapur at a cost of Rs20 cr. He said that it would train 5000 persons per annum in apparel technology.
