These textile parks will be built under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 5F. The government is emphasizing on setting up a mega-integrated textile park, where the manufacturing of clothes, their marketing, designing and export can all be done from one place. Having all the basic facilities in one place will help the textile sector to provide single employment in large numbers and make its entry in the export market. The textile sector provides employment in large numbers. India is the sixth largest exporter of clothing.
