UP to Promote Readymade Garment Industry

07 July 2022: Uttar Pradesh government aims to promote the readymade garment industry in many districts. Under fresh plans, new units will be set up, which will also export the products and along with it, new employment opportunities will also be created. The foundation stone of flatted factory complexes in Agra, Gorakhpur and Kanpur will be laid soon.

The process of setting up an Apparel Park in Noida will be started also and the foundation stone is likely to be laid in July 2022. About 115 export-oriented textile units will be set up in this sector with an investment of Rs.3,000 crore. Also, the process of setting up five new textile and apparel parks on PPP mode is being expedited. Development of handloom and textile clusters is proposed in each block of the state in the next five years.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath believes that there are immense possibilities for employment generation in the textile industry sector in the state. In the last 5 years, under the flagship schemes of Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority, Apparel Park on 118 acres (in Sector 29), and 80 units of Flatted Factory Complex and Garment Park have been started in the major schemes of Gorakhpur Industrial Development Authority.

Under this idea, last year, the State Government invited proposals for the development of Textile Park and Apparel Park. Efforts are underway to establish at least 5 Apparel/Garmenting Parks in the periphery of U.P, 50 km from Jewar Airport of District Gautam Budh Nagar.

A proposal is in the pipeline to develop the Purvanchal region of the state, especially as a centre for the readymade garments sector. After terracotta in Gorakhpur district, readymade garments have been included in Gorakhpur’s One District One Product Scheme (ODOP). A flat factory complex being developed by GIDA will have textile units.
