A leather exporter Council has asked the Uttar Pradesh government to allocate 100 acres of land around the city of Noida to develop an industrial park for shoes and accessories.

Motilal Sethi, Northern Regional Chairman, Council for Leather Exports (CLE) said that currently Noida alone contributes over Rs 1,000 crore worth of exports annually.

“If government of Uttar Pradesh helps industry to get a land of 100 acres in the vicinity of Noida, they (industry) can bring investment to the level of Rs 3,000-4,000 crore into the park and can generate annually Rs 2,000-3,000 crore worth of exports and can provide employment to 50,000 workmen of the state,” Sethi said in a statement.

Currently, most of the export manufacturing units are located in industrial towns of Noida and they are scattered around and does not have contiguous geographical area.

This hampers their manufacturing capacity, and efficiency, he said adding “there is a requirement of suitable land of 100 acres for footwear, goods and accessories fashion park in Greater Noida.”

A memorandum regarding this was presented to Yamuna Expressway Industrial Authority (YEIDA) CEO Arunvir Singh.

This proposed fashion park will be modern and besides factories, it will also have trade/display/exhibition convention centre, design centre, labour and supervisor training institute, hostel with dormitories, common facility centres and production supply chain infrastructure, he said.

Sanjay Leekha, chairman, CLE said that there is a huge opportunity emanating from various global investors and buyers of footwear, goods and accessories sector who are looking at India as an alternative destination for investment in manufacturing. View more.
