DIMAPUR, Feb 27 � Nagaland has become the first State in the North East to have an apparel and garment manufacturing centre as part of Centre�s Rs 20 crore project.

Union Minister of State for Textiles Santosh Kumar Gangwar on Tuesday laid the foundation stone of an Apparel and Garment Manufacturing Centre at District Industries Centre at 6th Mile and also unveiled the plaque of Weavers� Service Centre at Toluvi village here. The unit aims to provide direct employment to some 600 Naga youths.

In his address, Gangwar said the government had initiated to establish the Centre for equitable development in the country as desired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He, however, regretted that the North East remained neglected despite its vast potential in various sectors as the Central political leaders rarely visited the region.

The Union Minister said the Government of India will spend a sizeable amount of Central Budget to implement the project.

The unit would be the first national project in the North East as announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the State on December 1 last year. Modi had then assured to set up apparel and garment manufacturing centres in each Northeastern States.

Secretary of Ministry of Textiles SK Panda, who accompanied the Union Minister, said the Centre would enable the youths to find productive employment. He said Nagas have rich and distinct traditional costumes but it was unorganised and impeded its promotion and standardisation to cater to national and international markets.

Panda also informed that the National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC) would undertake the construction which is expected to be completed within three months.
