Despite the global pandemic Corona, UP’s textile exports increased by 40 percent

Lucknow, June 22 (H.C.). Indian clothing is recognized in the world. The garments are exported to different countries of the world from many units of Noida and Ghaziabad. At present, the majority of this industry is in the unorganized sector. To organize this, the Yogi government will build an apparel park in Noida. This will improve the quality of investors by getting all the facilities at one place. Exports will also increase.

A spokesperson of the Uttar Pradesh government says that if we look at the figures for the financial year 2021-2022, the share of textiles and apparels in the goods exported from the state was 9 percent i.e. 12,996 crores. Leaving the products of electronic and electrical and meat products at number two respectively, then apparel is the third number among the products exported from the state.

The spokesman said that there was an increase of about 40 percent in exports as compared to 2020-2021. This growth was more than the products of electronics and electrical and meat during the same period. Despite the global pandemic Corona, this increase will be considered remarkable in itself.

He said that the share of Gautam Budh Nagar and Ghaziabad in the top-10 cities of the state in exports is 41 and 11 percent respectively. The exporting apparel industry is also in these districts. Most of these are in the unplanned area. To provide them all facilities at one place by employing them, Yogi government will build an apparel park in Noida. About 115 export oriented units of readymade garments are targeted to be set up in this park. According to an estimate, an investment of three thousand crores will come in this. Soon the process will be started in this regard. The target is to lay the foundation stone in July and commercial production in all the units by September 2025.

Apart from this, the government also plans to make five textiles and apparels on the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model. For this, the process of tender will be started by marking the land by September next year. The target is to start production by 2026.

Flatted factories will be built in cities with rich tradition

According to an official spokesperson, to give an organized look to this industry, the government will set up flatted factories in or around the cities where there is a rich tradition of readymade garments. In the first phase, Kanpur Nagar, Gorakhpur and Agra have been selected for this. Keeping in view the possibilities of cluster approach, the government will also establish textile industry as per the tradition of that area in the industrial corridors to be built along all the expressways. In the future, such clusters will be developed in each block under the National Handloom Development Program and MSECDP scheme at a cost of Rs 500 crore.

The government also plans to build a world-class textile park at a cost of Rs 10,000 crore under the PM Mitra scheme. In order to make Uttar Pradesh a global textile hub through the new policy, best infrastructure, skill development of weavers and cluster approach, the government will also lay emphasis on marketing of finished goods for Brand UP. In this sequence, the government will sign MoUs with big players of online platforms such as Flipkart, Amazon. Weavers will also be given training to onboard their products.
