The Tamil Nadu Government will declare a revised textile policy soon. The revised textile policy would encourage units with less than Rs. 50 crore turnover in the man-made fibre sector.
The State Government also wants to create an advisory group and have a networking platform for technical textiles. It would focus on developing synthetic yarn and fabric manufacturing.
Addressing an event in Coimbatore, R. Gandhi, Minister for Handlooms and Textiles, Tamil Nadu said that the State Government will consider giving thrust to technical textiles at the PM MITRA park at Virudhunagar. The state has announced mini textile parks and a textile city in Chennai and formed a scientific committee to address the issue of safe disposal of salts at common effluent treatment plants (CETP).
The Government orders have been issued to start 10 mini textile parks and the state would launch them soon. The integrated park near Salem, when approved by the Centre, would be a solution to the textile processing industries in Salem.
The State Government has created a technical textiles cell and would conduct a focused workshop in the next couple of months connecting the centres of excellence for technical textiles with the entrepreneurs.
