Gorakhpur: The one district one product scheme in Uttar Pradesh will play a big role in making India self-reliant, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath after visiting the garment exhibition in Gorakhpur on Saturday.
“The ODOP scheme will play a big role in realizing the dream of a self-reliant India. The readymade garment sector requires low capital and generates high employment. In Gorakhpur 15,000 people are directly employed in the sector with investment of Rs 350 crore. We are aiming to create employment for 50,000 in the sector. The readymade garment flatted factory would be established in GIDA soon,” the CM said.
“We saw possibilities in markets during four years and made schemes accordingly. After terracotta, readymade garments were also included in ODOP list of Gorakhpur. Officials have been given guidelines to provide easy loans to MSME units. We are running many schemes to promote traditional business,” said Yogi
The CM expressed happiness that Northern India Textile Research Association (NITRA) gave training to entrepreneurs and advised people to work hard.
MP Ravi Kishan, chairman of chamber of industries Vishnu Ajit Saria, former chairman S K Agarwal, Pravin Modi and senior officials were also present on the occasion.
