Second integrated textile park in Beed soon: CM

To ensure that cotton produced locally is utilised without any middleman, the Maharashtra state government will soon set up its second integrated textile park in Beed district, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has said.
 
The state government has already announced setting up of an integrated textile park in Amravati district, which will help in generating more employment opportunities, Fadnavis said at the book launch ceremony of Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana (SSS) leader Sadabhau Khot.
 
Maharashtra contributes 31 per cent to India's total cotton production, but only 25 per cent of it is processed and treated within the state, he said, and added that processing of agricultural produce increases economic strength of the farmers.
 
He also said that the government will make extra efforts to increase the use of indigenous seeds.
 
He suggested that some portion of crop loans should be utilised to improve the infrastructure of the farms, which would help in developing agricultural practices in the country.
 
The revival of the textile industry is one of the pet projects of Fadnavis. According to him, to make the textile sector economically viable and to bring higher earnings to farmers, it is necessary to link cotton-growing fields with textile processing and readymade garment manufacturing units.
