6Minister of State for Textiles, Santosh Kumar Gangwar and Chief Minister of Manipur, O Ibobi Singh laid the foundation stone for an Apparel Making Centre at Lamboikongnangkhong, Imphal-West. They also laid the foundation stone for a Power Loom Estate at Imphal.  Another foundation stone laying ceremony by Gangwar for an Apparel and Garment Making Unit at Namchi District, Sikkim is imminent. Each Apparel and Garment Making Centre set up under the initiative is estimated to generate direct employment for 1,200 people.

Each state will have one centre with three units, having 100 machines. For local entrepreneurs with requisite background, required facilities to start a unit will be provided in ‘plug and play’ mode. Once such entrepreneurs get established, they can set up their own units, allowing the facility to be provided to new entrepreneurs. The project will be fully funded by the Ministry of Textiles. The estimated expense is Rs. 18.18 crores, for each state. The central assistance would be towards construction of physical infrastructure, purchase of machinery and capacity building for next three years. National Buildings Construction Corporation Ltd. (NBCC) has been assigned the work of construction of centre and installation of machinery.  The Textiles Minister expressed his Ministry’s commitment in pursuing the development of all segments of textiles industry in North East, by giving particular thrust to improving earnings of primary producers and workers.
