Textile Park Planned at Odisha SEZ

30 March 2022: As per recent reports, Odisha Government is said to have submitted a proposal to the central government for the establishment of a textile park. This is envisaged under the PM Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel (PM MITRA) scheme that aims for holistic development of the sector. Overall, the Centre has received 17 proposals from 13 states for the establishment of textile parks. This indicates immense opportunities for textile printers and allied sectors.

The Odisha state government intends to set up the proposed textile park at the special economic zone (SEZ) of Tata Steel at Gopalpur in Ganjam. Around 1,000 acres have been identified by state-owned Idco within the SEZ for the facility, according to sources quoted in news reports.

In a written reply to a query by Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi on Wednesday, Union minister of state for textiles Darshana Jardosh told the Lok Sabha that the proposals are under scrutiny for consideration by the project approval committee.

The parameters devised for selection of sites for PM MITRA parks include connectivity to the site (25%), existing ecosystem for textiles (25%), availability of utility services at site (20%), state industrial/textile policy (20%) and environmental/social impact (10%), said the Union minister.

Though initially the textile park was planned at Neulopoi in Dhenkanal district, the location was changed as it comes under an eco-sensitive zone.
