India’s Uttar Pradesh State will set up a textile park at Raipur Jagir village of Meerganj tehsil in Bareilly District at a cost of Rs. 84 cr, Rama Raman, Director and Commissioner of the State’s Handloom and Textile Department, announced recently. He said 5,000 jobs are expected to be created when 50 industries are set up in the park covering 39 acres.
During the recent UP Investors’ Summit 2018, agreements were signed with 38 companies eager to set up units at the textile park in Bareilly. A nodal officer will assist companies in getting required approvals, a top Indian newspaper quoted Raman as saying. Thirty six handloom and textile industries and 14 other units to provide raw material to the manufacturing companies will be set-up.
