Budget 2021: Scheme to set up mega textile parks in India
As part of the Centre’s efforts to position India as a fully integrated, globally competitive manufacturing and exporting hub for the sector, an announcement to set up mega textile parks has been made by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Budget 2021.
“A scheme of mega investment textile parks will be launched in addition to the PLI scheme,” Sitharaman said.
She informed that 7 mega textile parks will be launched in three years as part of the scheme.
The mega textile parks will have integrated facilities and quick turnaround time for minimizing transportation losses, eyeing big-ticket investments in the sector.
“The announcement to set up 7 mega textile parks with plug-and-play facility in 3 years will unlock the potential of new markets for development and provide an impetus to real estate assets, including logistics and warehousing,” said Anuj Puri, Chairman – ANAROCK Property Consultants.
