The Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC) has proposed setting up small- and medium-scale textile clusters spread over 50-100 acre each to encourage manufacturers from outside the state, such as Bhiwandi, Surat and Sholapur, to establish their units. This will encourage reverse migration of weavers to the state, it feels. 

Besides providing land, the state government is ready to provide incentives and subsidies, corporation chairman Gyadari Balamallu told representatives of the textile industry managements of Sholapur, Bhiwandi and Surat at a meeting at the TSIIC office in Hyderabad recently, according to media reports in Telangana. 

A proposal for setting up a small-scale textile park is under consideration in Pendyala village of Janagaon district, he added. (DS) (Source:
