The State Government of Maharashtra (India) is planning to shape up a scheme to develop solar projects to supply electricity to the textile sector.

This was announced by Subhash Deshmukh, Minister of Textiles (Maharashtra), while attending a live broadcast programme of Centre’s Power Tex India Scheme launch. Union Minister of Textiles Smriti Irani had launched the Scheme at Bhiwandi in Mumbai and the programme was broadcast at 43 centres nationwide.

The Minister also said that the State Government is considering reopening of closed textile units as well as those that are in bad shape because of market fluctuations.
