Erode: Union Minister of Textiles Dayanidhi Maran has called upon promoters of Texvalley _ Integrated Textile Marketing Complex _ to try to complete the construction works in nine months.

He was speaking after laying the foundation stone for the Erode Mega Powerloom Cluster, which comprises a marketing complex (Texvalley) and a manufacturing cluster, at Gangapuram near Chithode in Erode district on Saturday. The marketing complex would be established as a public-private partnership initiative under the Comprehensive Powerloom Cluster Development Scheme of the Ministry of Textiles. The total project cost is estimated to be around Rs. 145 crore. Of this, the ministry has extended a grant of Rs. 38 crore. A special purpose vehicle, Erode Textile Mall Limited, has been formed for the implementation of the project.

Mr. Maran said that the integrated marketing facility would provide adequate opportunities for the textile industries in this part of the State to market their products effectively. The complex would primarily benefit the small and medium textile manufacturers and traders, as it would bring in all the weekly markets in Erode under a single roof.

Expressing concern over pollution caused by the textile industries, Mr. Maran said that the ministry had taken efforts to prepare a detailed project report for the marine discharge project. The environmental clearance for the project was yet to be obtained. The Minister further said that the government alone could not control pollution. State Minister for Handlooms and Textiles KKSSR Ramachandran presided. Collector T. Soundiah, Erode MP Ganeshamoorthy, Mayor Kumar K. Murugesh, former union minister Subbulakshmi Jagadeesan, MLAs N K K P Raja, R.M. Palanisamy and Vidiyal Sekar, Erode Textile Mall Limited Chairman P. Periyaswamy, Vice-Chairman C. Devarajan and senior officials were present.
