Union Minister of Textiles, Commerce & Industry, Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution, Shri Piyush Goyal congratulated the state of Maharashtra for being awarded the prestigious Pradhan Mantri Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel (PM MITRA) Park in Amravati. While addressing the launch ceremony of PM MITRA Textile Park, Amravati on 16 July , the Minister emphasized that the addition of PM MITRA Park would further strengthen the rapid progress of Maharashtra.
Shri Piyush Goyal said that given Maharashtra’s significant contributions across the entire textile value chain, from Farm to Fiber to Factory to Fashion to Foreign, it is a natural choice for a textile park. Shri Goyal further highlighted that the well-connected infrastructure of Amravati, including its road, rail, port, and airport networks, will significantly boost the textile industry in Maharashtra.
The PM MITRA Textile Park in Amravati is expected to attract an investment of Rs. 10,000 crore and create both direct and indirect employment for approximately 300,000 individuals. Spanning across a contiguous 1020 acres of land at Nandgaon Peth, adjacent to the Additional Amravati Industrial Area (MIDC), the Park is situated just 30 kilometers away from the Mumbai Nagpur Samruddhi Highway and 147 kilometers from the nearest port, the Wardha Dry Port. As a brownfield park, it already possesses essential infrastructure such as roads, water, and electricity.
