YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-02-10 12:00:00 – Mumbai

Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday, speaking on the Maiden 'Make In India' Week which is to begin in Mumbai from February 13 stated that the Make in India Week would address the issue of agrarian crisis in Maharashtra, A dedicated seminar on textile industry is aimed at cherishing the dream of 'from farm to fashion', which would help state's cotton growers.

The CM also said that cotton growers in Vidarbha, Marathwada and parts of North Maharashtra would benefit from the textile policy and that the government would be creating textile parks.

At present, only 25% of the cotton grown in Maharashtra is utilized for value addition. If it is possible through textile parks to ensure that 100% cotton is utilized for value addition, state's farmers would be the biggest beneficiaries of the Make in India Week, Fadnavis added.

According to Union minister Nirmala Sitharaman, the biggest reason for the agrarian crisis is lack of storage facilities for farm produces and, through the Make in India Week, investors in this field would be attracted, which would be an advantage for the farmers.

The Centre is also taking steps towards providing farmers better facilities so that manufacturing can be linked with agriculture produce.

Maiden 'Make In India' Week will have over 190 companies, including multinational corporations, 5,000 delegates from 60 countries, and leading industrialists including Ratan Tata and Mukesh Ambani will also be participating in this event.
