After making Sircilla the first open defecation free district, TRS working President and IT Minister KTR is designing some ambitious plans to develop it. Earlier this year, KTR has called for green action plan and set his focus on water harvesting in the district. Popularly known as 'Textile town', Sircilla is home to several power looms, textile processing and dyeing units.
With a view to expand apparel park in Sircilla, Government of Telangana has signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with retail chain Shoppers Stop to set up an apparel manufacturing unit in the town. In presence of IT minister KTR, the MoU was signed by IT & Industries Principal Secretary Jayesh Ranjan and Shoppers Stop Managing Director & CEO Rajiv Suri in Mumbai today. The representative of Sircilla said that this manufacturing will create hundreds of employment opportunities to women.
Shoppers Stop, which has stores across the cities, sells in-house brands such as Haute Curry, Stop, Life, Kashish, IVY, Back to Earth and more. It operates the fashion retail chain in 40+ cities, with more than 83 departmental stores, and close to 10% of its revenue is generated from Amazon online sales.
