Mega textile project to be set up in Andhra Pradesh

Nov '09
A mega textile project worth Rs. 500 million would be established near Chirala in Prakasam district of the state of Andhra Pradesh soon, announced the Minister of State for Textiles Ms. Panabaka Lakshmi.

The foundation stone of the project will be laid on November 3. This project envisages a textile design centre as well as a training centre for weavers to train them in latest technologies and designs.

The state-owned marketing and sales units like APCO would purchase the goods manufactured in the project, which would ensure a guaranteed income to the regional weavers, added the Minister.

In order to aid assistance to the weavers' community, more such projects would be set up across the country by the Union Government, informed the Minister, who earlier distributed 117 acres of land among 177 people, providing them with title deeds.
