Bizmen demand the revival of the sewing machine cluster | News Ludhiana

Ludhiana: The sewing machine industry of Ludhiana is asking for the revival of its industrial cluster in Raikot where the sewing machine and parts manufacturers were to set up their units as well as the common installation centers. The cluster, however, could not take off because previous governments failed to provide basic infrastructure like roads, sewage system and boundary walls. The businessmen demand that the new government take the initiative and revive this project so that the sewing machine industry can settle here and produce the latest products.
Jagbir Singh Soki, Chairman of the Sewing Machine Technology Park Cluster, said, “During the tenure of the previous Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) government, a huge piece of land was set aside for the Sewing Machine Industry Cluster in Raikot. But due to non-existent infrastructure, especially roads, and a lack of proper promotion of the project, there were few takers. The worst thing is that even after Congress took over from the State in 2017, nothing has changed and this project has remained obsolete due to the apathy of the services concerned.
Sokhi also added, “Ludhiana is the biggest sewing machine industry hub in the country and many industrialists are still ready to install their units in this project in Raikot, but only if the roads and other infrastructure are there. first built. . We ask the Aam Admi Party (AAP) to take notice of this project, which is nothing less than a drain on government resources and to revive it as soon as possible so that it also becomes an asset for the State and the machinery industry to sew.
According Kulwant SinghGeneral Secretary of the Sewing Machine Development Club (SMDC), “About 31 acres of land is unused in the Raikot cluster for the sewing machine industry, which can otherwise help the establishment of specialized units in the production modern sewing machines, which are currently being imported from countries like China. If this project is revived and the industry settles there, it will also help boost employment and generate huge revenues for the government of the state which is facing a cash crisis right now.
