Indian Government has started reviewing the Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP) launched in 2005 to provide the industry with state-of-the-art world-class infrastructure facilities for setting up their textile units. The move has come after a report commissioned by Textiles Ministry claimed that the SITP failed to provide the industry with world-class facilities.

“We are reviewing the Scheme for Integrated Textiles Parks as many SPVs were found violating its norms as non-textiles units were operating from inside the parks. The report commissioned by us has also revealed many loopholes in the scheme which need to be rectified,” a senior Textiles Ministry official was quoted as saying by a news agency.

The report commissioned by the Ministry has suggested launching of new parks having minimum land size of 1,000 acres, and infrastructure support in the form of readymade factory sheds, warehouse, incubation centres and testing labs, with express connectivity to seaports and airports under the scheme Mega Textile Parks.

Textiles Minister Smriti Irani last month had informed Parliament that the Ministry was examining complaints against certain SPVs of textile parks sanctioned under the SITP for violation of guidelines.
