Largest producer of PV suitings in the country
8 Integrated Textile Parks sanctioned to boost the sector
A Promising Textile Hub
Over last few decades, Rajasthan has emerged as a promising textile hub. Abundance of raw material and trained labour have been the key drivers of this growth.
Rajasthan enjoys leading position in production of polyester viscose yarn and synthetic suiting material as well as in processing of low-cost, low-weight fabric. The State is the largest producer of PV suitings in the country.
Bhilwara has emerged as India's largest manufacturer of suiting fabrics and yarn and Barmer has been added in the list of Towns of Export Excellence. With a network of backward and forward linkages, Rajasthan's textile industry offers significant competitive advantage.
16 ATDC Smart Centers have been set up in Rajasthan for providing trained manpower. Eight integrated textile parks have been sanctioned in Rajasthan with GoI assistance of Rs.40 crore each and are in various stages of progress. A special Power Loom Industrial Area is to be set up by RIICO in the Pali district.
