Work is set to begin for establishing a new apparel estate in an industrial park in Hanspura, near Ahmedabad, in western Indian state of Gujarat. The Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) has hired a private agency for starting work on setting up of the new apparel park, which will house both textile units and apparel showrooms.

GIDC has already acquired 6.40 hectares of land for the project, according to a report in a leading daily.

“The park will comprise various apparel units wherein 50, 100, and 150 machines can be accommodated per floor,” the report said quoting GIDC managing director M Thennarasan.

About 15 units are likely to operate in the park, creating employment for around 22,000 people.

“Various common facilities such as crèche, training centre, warehouse, parking, canteen, and dormitory will also be accommodated at the park,” Thennarasan said.
