India’s first mega silk cluster will come up at Belavadi, on the outskirts of Mysuru in Karnataka state. The silk cluster is a first of its kind initiative, aimed at creating state-of-the-art infrastructure facilities for silk weaving and processing in the region. Initially, the Government of India will contribute Rs. 30 crore towards the project and a special purpose vehicle (SPV) will be constituted for raising the remaining cost from stakeholders. The facility is expected to be completed in 2016.
