Odisha, Telangana to emulate Tirupur model in garments sector

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-05-05 10:00:00 – Coimbatore

Telangana and Odisha plan to replicate some of the successes of the Tirupur cluster of garment units. The officials of both the states have appealed to big garment units in Tirupur such as Dollar, Lux and Rupa to invest in their respective states.

According to sources, officials from Odisha textile handloom industries department recently made a visit to Tirupur to have a first-hand information and the cluster’s successful operation over the years.

The Odisha government, which came out with a dedicated apparel policy early this year, has not only sought the help of Tirupur Exporters’ Association (TEA) in drawing up its strategy but also in setting up training and skill development institutes.

Recently, the Odisha government had set up an apparel park near Bhubaneshwar and plans to have two more such parks in the state, the sources said.

On the other hand, Telangana IT minister KT Rama Rao has taken a great deal of interest in creating such clusters in the state. He has met Union textiles minister Smriti Irani and has sought her help in creating such clusters to capitalise on the state’s rich cotton crop cultivation.

Cotton is the major commercial crop of Telengana and the state government has thrown in incentives under its textile policy to woo investments from garment units in Tirupur to set up similar units in the cotton-growing districts of Warangal, Karimnagar, Medak, Khammam.
