The Ministry of Textiles (MoT) has been requested by Karur’s textile exporters and manufacturers to establish a textile wet processing park there.
This request was made during a conversation between the Karur Textile Manufacturer Expansion Association and Prajakta L. Verma, Joint Secretary, Textiles, and Additional Secretary, Textiles, Rohit Kansal.
Representatives of the association emphasized how rapidly the Karur cluster had developed over time. The Ministry should comply with all of the association’s demands in order to accomplish the Rs. 25,000 crore sales turnover goal by 2030 while taking into account the numerous elements and difficulties faced by exporters in Karur.
The industry representatives submitted a memorandum that there was a need to establish a Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP).
It was emphasized that the park should be established in the same location so that numerous small and microbusinesses might submit applications to build their factories there. The cost of the wet process would be reduced, allowing producers and exporters to compete on the global market.
The sector urged MoT to establish an Integrated Textile Trade Facilitation Center to promote Karur-produced goods.
Meanwhile, in November, Tamil Nadu received 100 applications from the representatives of the textiles units to set up mini textile parks across the state.
