Industrial park with potential for 15,000 jobs coming up in Jangipur
Jangipur in Murshidabad district is soon going to get an industrial park. The 10-acre site will be located in Jaffarabad mouza in Samareshganj block.
Officials of the State Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) and Textiles Department have already visited the spot and have started preparations for building the industrial park.
The zilla parishad of Murshidabad will be spending almost Rs 7.5 crore to set up the park, to be primarily spent on facilities for power, roads, sanitation and drinking water pipelines.
There is a lot of potential for food processing and plastics-based industries in the region, and hence the decision was taken to set up the industrial park. There is potential for the creation of 15,000 jobs, through direct and indirect means.
