Meghalaya largest apparel manufacturing unit starts its operations: Details, Highlights

Meghalaya's largest apparel manufacturing unit near Ampati has started production after remaining idle for nearly two years. It is located at Hatisil in South West Garo Hills and covering an area of 45,000 sq feet.

The apparel factory was initially set up at a cost of Rs 14.26 crore by the Union Ministry of Textiles. However, the unit remained idle for nearly two years as the agencies that the unit was allocated to failure to meet their commitment to start production.

The center was made operational after the School of Livelihood and Rural Development (SLRD) took over the centre in September 2018.

The SLRD is a development agency with operations across four regions of the country and has expertise in skill development, market integration, and rural development.

The production work has finally begun and will be ramped up in stages to meet the market demand in India and Bangladesh.
