India’s Maharashtra state will set up a garment park and a textile training centre with an investment of Rs 500 crore in Solapur, state textile minister Subhash Deshmukh said recently while inaugurating the second International Uniform and Garment Exhibition in the city, which is set to become a major hub for uniforms for the armed forces and police, he said.

The uniforms industry, including those of school, companies, military and paramilitary, is worth over Rs 18,000 crore, of which nearly Rs 10,000 crore is in the organised sector. Of the rest, Solapur contributes nearly Rs 1,200 crore with uniforms churned out from more than 1,000 manufacturing units in the city, employing over 60,000 workers, according to a news agency report.

The Bank of Maharashtra has also announced a special credit scheme which would help the manufacturers and traders in the park. (DS)
