Gujarat govt, SGCCI to sign MoU for mega textile park
Jan '17
The government of Gujarat will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) for the development of a mega textile park. The agreement that will be inked during the upcoming Vibrant Gujarat Summit aims to come up with a mega textile park worth Rs 1,800 crore at Pinjrat near Olpad in Surat.

The four-day Vibrant Gujarat Summit will begin from January 10. The establishment of mega textile park will bring about a change in the Surat textile sector, said SGCCI president BS Agarwal. The government will be allotting 70 lakh square metres of land for the textile park. With a total investment of around Rs 10,000 crore, the park will accommodate nearly 100 textile processing units, 40 water-jet weaving units, 225 garmenting units and other textile ancillary units, according to a leading daily.

Huge textile processing units, each with an average manufacturing capacity of around 3 lakh metres of fabric per day, will be set up in the textile park. Of the total production, 50 per cent will be converted into apparel and home textiles while the remaining will be sold to other parts of the country.  

At present, the processing units in Surat that are situated in Pandesara, Kadodara, Palsana and Sachin industrial have only one Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) per unit, said Agarwal. Surat is unable to produce apparel in huge quantity due to lack of facilities for proper disposal of effluents. This is hampering the Surat export market as garments in huge quantity of same quality are required for exports. (RR)
