Arunachal Pradesh’s biggest apparel factory will be inaugurated in November first week by the northeast Indian state’s chief minister Pema Khandu. Set up by ELAM Industries owned by Group Captain (retired) Mohonto Panging, who established the first mechanised textile factory in the state in 2015 at Pasighat, the unit will employ about 250 people.
The new factory, to be inaugurated on November 3, can produce about 1,000 shirts or 2,000 T -shirts per day.
"Setting up of manufacturing industries in northeast India will reduce this dependence on other states in addition to providing employment to large number of local people and contribute to development of the region, a top English-language newspaper quoted Panging as saying. (DS)
