Work on TN Irur textile park to start soon
Decks are being cleared, including transfer of land to SIPCOT to construct a textile park at Irur village on the Tiruchi-Perambalur National Highway in Tamil Nadu. Work is expected to start in October 2016 according to the State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT). The proposal of the textile park has attracted a large number of entrepreneurs with as many as 31 of them from different parts of the state expressing interest to set up units.
Interestingly, the textile park will mainly cater to the needs of export-oriented readymade garments units and production of yarn. A number of entrepreneurs have submitted their projects to set up T-shirt manufacturing units. To support the textile park, the Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage Board has planned to provide adequate water supply to the site, where the park will be situated on an area of 40.35 hectares.
A sum of Rs 65 lakh has been sanctioned for laying a tar road from the National Highway to the site. The textile park will not handle dyes and chemicals to prevent environment pollution.
