On the other hand, the SGCCI has already proposed the setting up of mega textile park at Pinjrat near Olpad. For this, the chamber has submitted a proposal to the state government for allocating around 80 lakh square meter of land for setting up state-of-the-art textile processing units.

The ministry has started a project to develop raw linen on agricultural land with the help of scientists and experts from the textile and agricultural research institutes. Once they will start reaping the crops, India will have its own raw material for manufacturing linen cloths. This could be implemented in Surat as well. Currently, India imports linen from Belgium, as raw linen is produced in European countries.
