Union
Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has requested Union Textile Minister
Piyush Goyal to set up a greenfield Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel
(MITRA) park in Odisha.

the availability of skilled workforce, Pradhan said Odisha has emerged as the
knowledge and skill hub with the location of globally-recognised institutes of
higher learning, research and skill development such as CIPET, IIT, IIM, IIIT,
NIT, AIIMS, NISER, Skill Development Institute, Indian Oil-ICT Odisha Campus.

Pradhan
said that, Odisha has a long and rich history of textiles and the handlooms of
Odisha have gained world-wide acclaim for their design and quality. Various
designs have existed here, such as Sambalpuri, Bomkei and Berhampuri. Odisha is
also famous for its Ikat type of weaving. He added that, with this rich history
and locally available competence in this area, Odisha is uniquely positioned to
attract investments in the textiles and apparel sectors.

The
State also has an Industrial Policy and an Apparel Policy to ensure smooth
clearance of the project and provide adequate incentive to the industries.
Under the Apparel Policy, capital grant of 20% of project cost up to Rs 20
crore and interest-free loan up to 10% with maximum limit of Rs 10 crore are
available to the industries, he said.

The
Union Ministry of Textile has announced setting up of seven
MITRA parks in the country to be developed
by a special purpose vehicle (SPV) owned by the States and the Centre in a
public-private partnership (PPP) mode.
