AHMEDABAD: In a major boost to the textile industry of Gujarat, the Union government has given its final approval for setting up a Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel (MITRA) Park at Navsari on Friday.
The textile park in Navsari will be among seven others across the country. A total outlay of Rs 4,445 crore has been proposed for setting up these parks.
Industry players in Gujarat have hailed the move as it will prove to be a major boost towards setting up an entire value chain of textile manufacturing in Gujarat.
“The state will benefit the most as it is already home to man-made fibre, technical textiles and readymade garments sectors,” an industry player said. The government has also announced the Production-Linked Incentives (PLI) scheme for the textiles industry.
