The Cabinet approved seven new mega textile parks on October 6 with the goal of creating world-class infrastructure with plug-and-play facilities that will enable substantial investments in exports. The parks will generate 1 lakh direct and 2 lakh indirect jobs per park, according to Textiles Minister Piyush Goyal, as part of the government's 'Farm to Fiber to Factory to Fashion to Foreign' initiative. The government first announced the Mega Investment Textile Parks (MITRA) programme in February, with the goal of making the textile industry more globally competitive while also increasing employment and exports. These will be built on greenfield or brownfield locations around the United States. At the moment, the entire textile value chain is dispersed and fractured across the country. Cotton cultivated in Gujarat and Maharashtra, spun in Tamil Nadu, processed in Rajasthan and Gujarat, garmenting in the National Capital Region, Bangalore, Kolkata, and exports from Mumbai and Kandla are all included. Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Assam, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, and Telangana are among the states that have indicated interest, according to Goyal.
