YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-01-04 12:00:00 – Pune

The Maharashtra state government after having announced the setting up of an Integrated Textile Park in Amravati and recently Raymond has declared its intention to do the same that will help in generating more employment opportunities. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday said that the state government will soon be setting up its second integrate textile park in Beed.

The state government decision to set up textile park in Beed is, it will improve the economic condition of farmers and usher in the processing of agricultural produce. The government will also make special efforts to increase the usage of indigenous seeds in the state.

Fadnavis was speaking at the book launch ceremony of Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana (SSS) leader Sadabhau Khot.

Fadnavis said that although the state produces 31 percent of total cotton produced in the country, only 25 percent is processed and treated. Processing of agricultural produce in fact allows more economic strength to the farmers.

Fadnavis further added that although Rs 7-8 crore is distributed as crop loans every year, not even 25 percent is spent to improve the infrastructure of the farms. Crop loans are for short terms but some portion of it should be used to improve the infrastructure of the farms. That will help in improving the level of agricultural practices in the country.

Fadnavis while talking about the present drought situation in the state said that through the state government’s flagship program of Jal Yukta Shivar, 24 TMC of water has been conserved in the state in the last one year. This costed only Rs 1,400 crore. During the previous government’s regime, such conservation would have costed almost double.

Making a strong case for decentralised water resources, Fadnavis said that big dams have only managed to give water to a handful of people. The present crisis in front of the government is due to wrong policies and that needs to be corrected.

Another scheme the state government has started to help the distressed agricultural community is the streamlining of the distribution of agricultural pumps. The state government has decided to the clear all pending applications. In the last five years, there was a huge backlog of pending applications of agricultural pumps. They have decided to start a system in which no one has to wait for allocation of such pumps anymore.
