To support 20,000 weavers’ families, Kodakandla, in Warangal district, Telangana state government plans to set up a mini textile park at Kodakandla in Warangal. Kodakandla has been selected for easy availability of workforce. Warangal already has another big textile park promoted by the state government.
“Scores of skilled weavers are available in the area and they migrated to other sStates due to absence of employment opportunities,” said the state’s industries minister K T Rama Rao1. He also assured the ongoing welfare schemes for weavers would continue uninterrupted. It is important to mention here that the state government is running some beneficial schemes for the weavers like the Cheyutha scheme, which helped weavers overcome the difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic and the relaxations to the tune of Rs 95 crore extended under the scheme assisted nearly 25,000 families.
