The Indian textiles & clothing industry, the second largest employment provider next only to agriculture, could not achieve the envisaged growth mainly due to scale of operation. The Government has been historically announcing several schemes to support the MSMEs. Certain State Governments in their textile and industrial policies started encouraging scale of operation in the recent years. Competing countries like China, Bangladesh, Vietnam, etc., encouraged scale of operation and could meet the demands of global brands and thereby achieved the phenomenal growth pushing back India from the second position to sixth position in the recent years in terms of global textile trade. The industry has been pleading the Government to announce a unique scheme for encouraging scale of operation in textile industry. The Government had earlier announced Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel Parks (MITRA) in the Union Budget 2021. The Cabinet Committee has now approved seven PM-MITRA parks with a total outlay of Rs.4445 crores for a period of five years. The scheme is inspired by the 5F vision of the Hon’ble Prime Minister viz., Farm to Fibre to Factory to Fashion to Foreign. The scheme provides an opportunity to create an integrated textile value chain in a single location with large scale investments. The minimum land area specified for the park is 1000 acres for the development of world-class industrial estate with plug and play facilities.
