Mega textile park to be set up in Telangana

The BJP-led Centre has finally taken into account the Telangana government’s long-pending request to set up a mega textile park in the state.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday that a mega textile park would be established under PM MITRA (Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel) in Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh. Except for Tamil Nadu and Telangana, the other five are BJP-ruled States in which these parks are being set up.

The Centre’s assistance for these parks — categorised into Greenfield and Brownfield — would be 51 per cent and the balance would have to be borne by the respective State governments.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and Handlooms Minister KT Rama Rao had personally appealed to the Prime Minister to set up a mega textile park in Telangana.

All of the Telangana government’s efforts over the last six years have finally paid off, with the Centre announcing the setting up of a mega textile park in the State.

After the Azamjahi Mill closed many long ago, and considering the rich history of Warangal, the State government decided to set up a mega textile park. To this effect, 2,000 acres were allocated at Shayampet. The Chief Minister also laid the foundation for the mega textile park on October 22, 2017.

Under the first phase, 1,200 acres were acquired and Rs 1,552 crore of expenditure was estimated. Of this, Rs 1,100 crore was estimated for the provision of basic amenities.

Following the announcement, Union Minister G Kishan Reddy thanked Modi for announcing the textile park “as a gift to Telangana,” adding that the farmers and weaving community would benefit greatly from the venture.
