The Uttar Pradesh government recently decided to set up a textile park in Farrukhabad for which land has been acquired and investment has been arranged. The park would be spread over 14 hectares and the textiles units in Farrukhabad would be shifted there one by one, state principal secretary for micro, small and medium enterprises Navneet Sehgal said.

The state is expecting an investment of ₹200 crore, which would boost the sector and generate jobs, preventing the exodus of educated youth from small cities to bigger ones, he said.

There are 104 textile units in Farrukhabad now and 80 of them are in position to shift to the park, according to a news agency report.
The shifting process of the remaining units has been initiated, Sehgal said.

The issue of setting up of a textile park in Farrukhabad was raised almost a decade back. The local traders had been demanding a textile park as it will provide tax benefits and power subsidy to handloom and power loom units.

Sehgal said as the Central Pollution Control Board had asked the textile units to shift out of city limits, the Indian textile ministry gave permission to set up a textile park.

The park will be maintained and developed by private players. (DS)
