Maharashtra (India) Government has reserved 93 hectares of land in Lohara MIDC of the Yavatmal district for setting up a Textile Park. The work on the park is expected to start soon.
“The setting up of a Textile Park in Yavatmal MIDC area was pending for a long time due to availability of adequate land. The proposal was initiated by the then Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan himself,” said Madan Yerawar, Minister, Energy and Guardian Ministry.
The Park would ensure large scale employment to the youths of the region besides providing better avenues for the farmers to garner maximum benefit. Basic infrastructure including supply of energy, water and provision for sewerage water treatment plant at the site will also be set up at the site. A 132 KV electricity sub-station would cater to the energy requirements of the units in the textile park.
