YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-02-05 14:00:00 – Tamil Nadu

As many as thirty one entrepreneurs from different parts of the state expressed interest to set up units at the proposed textile park at Padalur on the Tiruchi- Chennai National Highway which is being promoted by State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT) and the State government had accorded permission to the Directorate of Handlooms and Textiles for the formation of the textile park.

The proposal, which hit several bottlenecks with regard to identification of site, was finally fixed at the junction of the Padalur and Irur panchayat on 40.35 hectares — 36.79 hectares of government poramboke land in the Padalur village and 3.56 hectares government poramboke land in Irur village. The proposed Textile Park has also evoked good response from the entrepreneurs.

The park will mainly cater to the needs of export-oriented ready-made garments units, production of yarn and so on. The park have also received applications from units for making T-shirts, according to the sources.

A meeting of the entrepreneurs would be held soon in Perambalur when their views would be sought on providing amenities and infrastructure.

The Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage Board would ensure adequate water supply to the Textile park.

As the park site is about 1 km away from the National Highway. To access the site, a road is being laid now.

Originally, the park was planned to have been set up at Eraiyur. But strong objection from the local residents made the district administration shifted the site to the Padalur where a vast extent of government porrambokke land was available.

The cooperation extended by the Padalur village panchayat was crucial for materialisation of the proposal.
