Gaya, which is already recognised for its religious significance, will soon emerge as a textile centre with a freight terminal to assure product export and import.
A textile cluster for readymade garments is being developed at a weir house in Durga Bari locality of the town. The target is to provide jobs to at least 100 migrant workers. The applicants under SC/ST entrepreneurship scheme will be imparted training through rural self-employment training institute (RSETI) at Delha.
Abhishek Singh, the district magistrate, has directed the banks to improve their credit-deposit (CD) ratio. Whereas the state average CD ratio is 44.26 percent, Gaya’s is 42 percent. Banks reached 72.1 percent in various sectors, including agricultural, kisan credit card, and Mudra loan programmes, in the annual credit plan.
