Bhadohi to get textile university
Virendra Singh Mast, an MP from Bhadohi, Uttar Pradesh, said that a textile university will soon come up on 23-acre land purchased by the Indian Institute of Carpet Technology (IICT) at Piparish in Bhadohi.
Singh, who formally inaugurated the 32nd India Carpet Expo at Sampurnanand Sanskrit University (SSU) ground, said that although textile-related work, including design creation and development, R&D and others are offered at the institute, there was a need for a textile university for research along with manufacture of all types of clothes with advanced mechanisms.
The four-day carpet expo, 12th to be held, was organised by the Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC) under the aegis of Union Government.
