MP to soon bring special policy for garment industry
Jan '17
The state government of Madhya Pradesh will soon bring out a special policy to encourage garment industry in the state. In the last one decade, the state has emerged as one of the hubs of textile industry in India owing to industry-friendly policy of the state government. The state has also made long term planning to increase electricity production.

“A special policy is being brought soon to encourage garment industry in the state,” Madhya Pradesh minister for commerce, industry, employment, mineral resources and overseas Indians Rajendra Shukla said at the 14th International and 72nd All India Textile Conference. Over 300 representatives of the textile industry participated in the conference organised by The Textile Association (India) – MP Unit, in Bhopal. With the theme ‘Shape India – Shape Textile’, the conference covered whole gamut of cotton, textiles and apparel industry.

Madhya Pradesh has all facilities needed to set up industries, said Shukla. He said that the state has around 1,000 acre land bank in all the districts to establish industries. He added that electricity, water, transport and other facilities like good roads are also available.

He said the state is registering an increase of 1,000 megawatt capacity in electricity production as a result of long term planning.

Well known textile groups like Trident, Raymond, Vardhman, Nahar, SEL Group and Grasim are successfully operating in the state. In the last six years, nearly 40,000 people have got employment in the textile sector in the state. (RKS)
