Telangana government will allocate 161 acres of land to Kakatiya Textile and Weavers’ Welfare Society for the establishment of a new textile park in Madikonda, Warangal and will provide Rs 10 crore in funding to weavers who set up a power loom in the park, according to state’s deputy chief minister, Kadiam Srihari.
This support by the government comes in order to bring back the weavers who migrated to Surat in Gujarat from Telangana for better opportunities and uplifting of the weaving industry in the state.
The textile park in Madikonda will provide employment opportunities to 2000 people directly and 10,000 people indirectly.
Additionally, the state government is proposing a textile industry which will require 3000 acres of land. The land acquisition process is underway for the same.
The Madikonda Park is independent of the state’s proposed textile industry, official sources said.
