State government support will include provision of 1,000 acre land for developing a world class industrial estate, the release stated.

The Centre will also offer a competitiveness incentive support of ₹300 crore to each PM MITRA park for early establishment of textiles manufacturing units. “Such support is crucial for a new project under establishment which has not been able to break even and needs support till it is able to scale up production and be able to establish its viability,” the release stated.

The PM MITRA scheme, approved by the Cabinet earlier this month, seeks to develop integrated large scale and modern industrial infrastructure facility for the entire value-chain of the textile industry. The objective is to reduce logistics costs and improve competitiveness of Indian textiles.

These parks are envisaged to be located at sites which have inherent strength for textile Industry to flourish and have necessary linkages to succeed,” the release added.
