A textile park proposed to come up at Tiruchi, a south Indian city of Tamil Nadu, is getting delayed due to low interest of the administration.
As per a leading Indian daily, a meeting of experienced entrepreneurs in RMG sector was convened about six months ago and their views on infrastructure were sought. The proposal had some serious bottlenecks on site identification till it was finalized at the junction of Padalur and Irur panchayats on 40.35-36.79 hectares of Government poramboke land in the Padalur village and 3.56 hectares Government poramboke land in Irur village.
It took two years for identifying the site. Even after that, the work is yet to be executed in full swing, the daily underlines.

The park was initiated by late Chief Minister of Tamilnadu, J. Jayalalithaa, and welcomed wholeheartedly by the huge number of entrepreneurs not only in the district but also from adjoining areas. The proposal reportedly grabbed around 31 entrepreneurs’ interest in setting up units in the textile park.
Promoted by State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT), the park targets at producing export-oriented garments. No dyeing activity would be taken up for protecting the environment and ground water potential. The State Government had accorded permission to the Directorate of Handlooms and Textiles for the formation of the textile park and the Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage Board will ensure the efficient amount of water supply to the park.
