Country's second rubber park to be set up in Tripura soon

Agartala, Jul 9 : India's second rubber-based industrial park is all set to start operating in Tripura soon, state Industries and Commerce Minister Jitendra Choudhury today said.

He said Tripura produces 26,000 tonnes of rubber every year out of which nearly 90 per cent is exported because of inadequate processing infrastructure in the state.

Considering huge potential and production possibilities the state has initiated the project for providing the prospective investors with necessary infrastructure for development of various rubber based industries, which would bring about a natural revolution in the elastic polymer industry, Mr Choudhury said. The rubber park, a joint venture of the Tripura Industrial Development Corporation (TIDC) and the Rubber Board, was the second of its kind in the country after the rubber park in Kerala's Irapuram, he added.

The Tripura government had set up a 'Rubber Mission' with the objective of systematically bringing 85,074 hectares more under rubber cultivation for ensuring socio-economic and industrial growth, Mr Choudhury stated.
