Inaugurating a textile park at Nandgaonpeth MIDC (industrial colony) near Amravati on Thursday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said such parks would be established in eight other places in the state's cotton-belt, according to media reports.

The government, which has approved land for Nandgaon textile hub in Amravati, will use 0.33 additional FSI to raise revenue for infrastructure projects, he said. The Amravati textile park with an investment of Rs 1243 crore will give direct employment to 3,700 people, he said.

Fadnavis who visited families of farmers who committed suicide in the cotton-growing belt of Vidarbha, announced that his government was on a mission to make Maharashtra suicide-free. The textile parks in drought-prone regions of the state would also provide alternative employment, he said.

The Chief Minister lauded the industries department for providing the necessary infrastructure at Nandgaonpeth MIDC saying that "this model would prove to be the best in the country, worth emulating for other states".

"On the lines of Nandgaonpeth, eight more textile parks would be set up at Yavatmal, Buldana, Jalgaon, Aurangabad, Jalna, Parbhani, Beed and Nanded," Fadnavis announced.

Admitting that farmer suicides were reported mostly from the cotton-growing areas, he said his government gives special priority to providing irrigation facilities and setting up cotton processing units in these areas.

"Jalyukta Shivar Yojana is a part of this endeavour. It is essential to create decentralised water storages. It is necessary to complete well-digging works. Unless irrigation facilities are created, farmers' lives will not improve," he said.

The companies which want to set up units in textile parks would get all the permissions within a month's time, he said. They would also get financial assistance. (SH)
