SGCCI requests land for textile processing cluster in Surat
Oct '16
A Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) delegation met Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani and made a request to provide a 50 lakh sq. metre land near Surat, for setting up a textile processing cluster. The expected cost of the project is around Rs 800 crore, which will also have a common effluent treatment plant (CETP).

“SGCCI expects a 50 per cent grant from the central government and 25 per cent from the Gujarat government for the project,” a leading daily reported.

SGCCI has planned this cluster as the existing textile processing units in and nearby Surat do not have space for expansion, as well are constrained by the effluent treatment capacities of the existing CETP's.

An SGCCI team will visit the capital of Gujarat, Gandhinagar later in the month and give a detailed presentation to chief secretary of Gujarat on the project. (AR)
