Decks cleared for Warangal textile park
Stage is set for the launch of long-pending textile park, slated to be the biggest ‘fibre to fabric’ (end-to-end) facility in the country, in Warangal with the authorities completing land acquisition, one of a key challenge that every government has been confronting, these days.
For over six years, the project has been in the pipeline, and only in 2014 it was ultimately given a push by the Telangana government. The State produces 60 lakh bales of cotton per annum, but consumption by the local mills is just around 10 lakh bales. The surplus is being exported to neighboring states Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.
The administration has acquired 1,120 acres against the required 1,050 acres. A detailed project report (DPR), prepared by the infrastructure leasing and financial services will be submitted to the government soon.
