With the aim of making Haryana a universal hub for textile manufacturing besides a reliable investment destination, the government of Haryana on Tuesday approved a brand new textile policy this year. This will include setting up of some new units and ensuring growth followed by modernization of the prevailing textile industry within the state.
Vipul Goyal, Industries & Commerce Minister post the state cabinet meeting help under the Manohar Lal Khattar’s chairmanship on Tuesday said “The policy is packed with fiscal incentives and contains provisions for infrastructure augmentation, setting up of textile parks, promotion of Khadi industry and facilities for skill training. It aims at generating 50,000 new jobs by attracting investment in the textile sector to the tune of Rs 5,000 crore.”
