The (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) MSMEs in the Indian state of Haryana are not happy with the recently announced Textile Policy to make the state, ‘a global hub of textile manufacturing and a popular investment destination’. The State Government proclaimed to give incentives for setting up new textile units in the policy.

However, entrepreneurs feel policies in Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh are more lucrative than what has been announced by the Haryana Government.

Cost of land is being seen as prime concern among entrepreneurs; this has been stated by Animesh Saxena, MD Neetee Clothing in a news report.

“Though in the policy the Government is offering incentives on land and electricity but that is only in Zone C and D, which is almost 100-200 kms away from the main belts. For a small MSME exporter, it’s isn’t very viable to set up something in the interiors where there is no supply chain or manpower available, Zone C and D lacks basic ecosystem,” he added.

The policy is not apt to address issues such as employment generation, minimum wage issue. Instead of Zone C and D which lack basic ecosystem, the Government should have promoted apparel zones in Gurgaon Faridabad, the MSMEs reportedly state.
