Guidelines of the Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP)

Continuation of the Scheme for Integrated Textiles Parks in 11th Plan

Though the Indian textile industry has its inherent advantages, infrastructure bottleneck is one of the prime areas of concern. To provide the industry with world-class infrastructure facilities for setting up their textile units, the Scheme for Integrated Textile Park (SITP) was approved in July 2005 to create new textile parks of international standards at potential growth centres. As per the target for the 10th Five Year Plan, 30 Textiles projects have been approved. There has been overwhelming response to the scheme. Taking into consideration the response to the scheme and the opportunities for the growth of textile industry in the quota free regime, the Government of India have decided to continue the SITP in the 11th Five Year Plan. Ten (10) Textiles Park projects will be approved at the first instance. This will facilitate additional investment, employment generation and increase in textiles production.

2. Industry Associations / Groups of Entrepreneurs would be the main promoters of the Textiles Park by forming a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for implementation / management of the project. Ministry of Textiles has engaged eight (8) Project Management Consultants (PMCs) who will help the promoters in formation of SPV, preparation of Detailed Project Reports, etc., for which Ministry of Textiles will pay fee to the PMCs. Detailed guidelines of the scheme, inter alia including the objective of the scheme, salient features of the scheme, level of assistance, role of SPV, PMC, State Government etc. and list of the empanelled PMCs are available on the following links or can be obtained from the SITP Cell, Ministry of Textiles, Room # 545, Udyog Bhawan, New Delhi-11, Tel: 011 23063544.
