Indian union minister of state for textile, Ajay Tamta undertook to create one crore employment opportunities in the Indian textile and apparel sector, while addressing a press conference in Dehradun.

According to Tamta, the textile ministry would also create huge employment in the industry, following the footsteps of the agriculture ministry, while seeking an export boost from the sector.

“We will go all out to widen the net of the ministry to involve as many people as possible to expand employment generation in the industry, he added.

“Our target is to promote both the organised as well as the unorganised sector in the industry, to ensure that everybody gets employment,” Tamta informed.

On setting up Textile Park's, the minister further said that whichever state wants to set up a Textile Park, would need to fulfill four to five conditions.

He also added that the ministry was currently working on a Rs 1,000-1,500 crore cluster park and also a Rs 15,000-25,000 crore mega cluster park. (AR)
