Entrepreneurs, interested in setting up units at the Padalur Textile Park in Tamil Nadu have demanded infrastructure development of the Park on war footing, as it has been delayed for long. When the proposal was mooted by the government, around 30 entrepreneurs had shown interest in setting up facilities there.
The delay was primarily due to hurdles in identification of a proper site for the Park, which was promoted by State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT) and aimed at manufacturing garments meant for export.
However, no dyeing activity would be permitted at the Park in order to protect the ground water as well as the environment.
