Maharashtra has stepped up efforts to woo investment in the textiles sector from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka where integrated textile chains are grappling with several problems, including power shortage and niggles from the pollution control boards. Textiles Minister Subhash Deskmukh has urged investors to invest in Maharashtra, which is planning to make Solapur the uniform and textiles hub of India. To showcase the potential, the State Government, along with Solapur Garment Manufacturing Association, is organising a three-day uniform, garment and fabric manufacturers’ fair in Bengaluru from January 8.
