West Bengal to boost garment industry with an apparel hub in Maheshtala


The West Bengal government plans to boost the state’s garment industry by setting up an apparel hub on 10 acre in Maheshtala. As per a Knitting Industry report the hub will span a built-up area of 12 lakh sq. ft. and will be set up under the aegis of MSME and textile department.

The park will create over 1 lakh jobs for thousands of people residing in the neighborhood of Nungi and in adjoining Metiabruz. It will accommodate around 30,000 people, says Rajesh Pandey, Secretary-MSME and Textiles. The investment in the project will be to the tune of several lakh crores, he adds

The project will be developed on a develop-build-finance-operate-and-transfer (DBFOT) model that gives private operators the right to operate the hub. The state government is offering a parcel of land along with a boundary wall on lease for 99 years for developing the hub. The government will select interested private partners by this week.
