The Textile industry that is providing employment to over 3,20,00,000 people in the country is soon getting a major boost in the form of a Textile city that is going to be launched in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The basic research of this venture in terms of lands, areas of expertise, technical backgrounds has already started. The issue of land allocation is being discussed by the Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu with the Central Minister Smriti Irani.
The whole objective of this project is to bring an international brand image to the textile industry and to encourage investments for which the planning is being done. Famous for the textile city, Kekayaan in China hosts around 29,000 industries and 40,000 varieties of products. To bring down that level of infrastructure and facilities to Andhra Pradesh, representatives from Neeti Ayog are soon going to China to gather all the required information and research needed for the successful implementation of this project.
The goal of Central government is to provide fresh employment to one crore people in the country with respect to the textile industry. Catering to this, a special package worth Rs.6000/- was also announced in June 2015.
