CM hopes to make Guntur textile capital of AP
Oct '10
Mr. K. Rosaiah – the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, wants to turn Guntur into a cotton capital of Andhra Pradesh and it is expected to be South India's glory in the cotton sector. A Textile Park has been set up at Boyapalem village in Guntur district. This is a textile park which will encompass most of the processes across the textile value chain and is likely to attract an investment of Rs 50 billion. Around 40 entrepreneurs have submitted their application for land in order to set up spinning, weaving and apparel mills. The Chief Minister has been successful in getting this major project for his home district, Guntur during his one year's tenure in the state administration.

Rs 3 billion have been invested by NSL Textiles in the textile park. The Chief Minister is expected to open the NSL textile mill at Chandolu village of the Guntur district. The mill is expected to manufacture 1,20,000 metres of cloth every day. Several other textile firms are also expected to invest in the textile park.

Around 60 weaving and apparel manufacturing units are likely to be established in the textile park with an investment of Rs 50 billion. If proper infrastructure is provided in the park then the weaving and apparel making units are likely to come up in the park within a period of one year and are expected to generate employment for 6,000 workers.

The state government has sanctioned 124 acres of land for the textile park. Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation Ltd. (APIIC) has been working on the preparation of blueprints for the sanction of land to the entrepreneurs.
