Two textile parks approved for Uttarakhand
Two textile parks have been approved for Uttarakhand and the state government has to decide where it wants to set them up, Union Minister of State for Textiles, Ajay Tamta, said recently.
In these parks, weavers will be provided hi-tech infrastructure facilities, modern technology, training and raw materials, he said.
The minister from Almora constituency said he will especially try to improve the conditions of the weavers living in remote areas of Uttarakhand and in the hilly areas along the Sino-Indian border.
He said this will help in reducing migration in the hilly areas in search of jobs and not only the weavers but educated and skilled youth will also get work opportunities.
