Mini Textile Park Scheme to streamline production for Tiruchi weavers


The proposed Mini Textile Park Scheme will benefit the Tiruchi weaving industry by streamlining production and sharing facilities among weavers.

The textile ministry is accelerating the establishment of small clusters in the town to enhance the textile sector's productivity. Firms joining this initiative will benefit from shared production facilities, reducing the need for outsourcing, explained a senior official from the Department of Handlooms and Textiles, Tiruchi.

The scheme offers financial assistance of up to Rs 2.5 crore to entrepreneurs. Initiatives like these could make previously unprofitable handloom operations viable by unifying their efforts, believe observers.  The scheme is expected to be introduced in Tiruchi shortly.

The scheme will integrate modern concepts like effluent treatment facilities. It would help the sector thrive sustainably through proper monitoring of the textile industries in cities like Tiruppur, Coimbatore, and Erode, says P Rajappa, President, Tiruchi District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association (TIDTTSSIA).

However, the requirement for participants to procure 2 acre might be challenging for many potential participants, notes Rajappa. A similar initiative could encourage local manufacturers to pool their resources, potentially transforming the region into an engineering production hub,” he adds.
