Manapparai May Soon Get A Mini Apparel Park


The Tiruchi District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association (TIDITSSIA) is keen on establishing a mini apparel park in Manapparai area, with the support of leading exporters in Tirupur. The association intends to make use of the Rs 2.5 crore subsidy offered by the state government for starting small textile clusters/parks. The state government, as per the new textile policy, will offer 50% of the cost to create roads, a sewage treatment plant and a captive power plant. Ten entrepreneurs could form a cluster and set up a mini textile park on ten acres. The entrepreneurs should buy the land and establish a minimum of ten worksheds to get the subsidy, sources said.
