Bengal invites investors for setting up power looms

Kolkata, West Bengal

The Mamata Banerjee government is inviting investors to set up power looms and other textile related industries at the upcoming Integrated Textile Park at Ashoknagar and Banipur of Habra in North 24-Parganas.

There is a requirement of around 7,200 million square metres, including 3,200 million square metres only in the garment sector, and woven clothes annually in the state. But at present only 300 million square metres is produced in Bengal in a year. As a result, the production-consumption gap compels import of fabric from other states.

Identifying that there is a scope of immediate installation of about 1.50 lakh power looms in the state, all necessary moves have been taken to attract investment in the sector by setting up power looms, spinning mills, wet processing (dying), garmenting industries at the West Bengal Small Industries Development Corporation Limited's (WBSIDCL) Integrated Textile Park at Ashoknagar and Banipur. WBSIDCL, under the state Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises and Textiles Department (MSME and T) is developing the basic infrastructure of the parks situated on either side of Jessore Road. There is even provision to provide plots of more area, in case of valid requirement.
