UP to develop textile park in Farrukhabad
With the aim to promote textile industry in Uttar Pradesh, the Yogi Adityanath government has decided to set up a textile park in Farrukhabad for which land has been acquired and investment has been arranged.
Principal Secretary (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) Navneet Sehgal said that the proposed park would be spread over 14 hectare area. He said the land had been arranged and the textiles units in Farrukhabad would be shifted there one by one.
“We are expecting an investment of Rs 200 crore which would not only give a boost to the textile sector but also help in generating jobs for local youth at their doorsteps. This will end the exodus of educated youth from small cities to bigger cities,” he said.
At present there are 104 textile units in Farrukhabad and 80 of them are in position to shift to the park.
