Haryana to get hosiery and carpet clusters soon
Jan '17
The Government of India will soon set up a hosiery cluster at Sirsa and a carpet cluster at Panipat in Haryana, said Union textiles minister Smriti Irani. She also said that the government will provide its support for establishing a trade facilitation centre and encourage major design initiative to help the state have a huge influx into the industry.

The hosiery cluster in the Sirsa district of Haryana will help create more employment opportunities, said Irani at the Pravasi Haryana Diwas held in Gurugram. She noted that the district produces 40 per cent of the total cotton produced in Haryana.

The minister said that the government would support the design initiative so that the second and third generation of Haryana can take the legacy of Panipat forward. She also urged pravasi Haryanvis to contribute towards the development of the state by being a part of Swa-Prerit Adarsh Gram Yojna.

Chief Minister of Haryana Manohar Lal Khattar said during the event that the Haryana state government will introduce policies for various sectors including textile.

Two NRI cells will also be set up to safeguard the interests of non-resident Indians belonging to the state, said the CM. (KD)
