The government of Maharashtra will be establishing a textile park in Lohara MIDC in Yavatmal over an area of 93 hectares.
The land for the park has already been reserved and work on it is likely to begin soon. The issue was discussed by the district administration and the concerned departments at a joint meeting that was recently held at Mantralaya. The textile park was pending for a long time as adequate land was not available for it. The proposal to build this park was initiated by Prithviraj Chavan, former chief minister of Maharashtra, Madan Yerawar, minister of state for energy & guardian minister of Yavatmal told a news agency.
The textile park will ensure better avenues for farmers, helping them garner maximum benefit. It will also provide employment to the youth of the region.
