The cotton textile industry in Mumbai grew because of its strategic location on the western coast of India, which allowed for easy transportation of cotton from the hinterlands to the city. Additionally, Mumbai had a skilled labor force, access to ports for exporting finished products, and availability of capital for investment in machinery and infrastructure. These factors combined to make Mumbai a hub for cotton textile manufacturing.

What is the current condition of the Mumbai cotton textile industry?

the current condition of the cotton textile industry in Mumbai is very worse because of the increase in the development of the city.

Give reasons why most of cotton textile industries have shifted to Ahmedabad area from Mumbai?

Most of the cotton textile industries have been recently shifted to Ahmedabad from Bombay (Mumbai) because of the following reasons:The cotton producing areas are much wider in the Ahmedabad region than in the Mumbai region.Cost of the land in Mumbai has risen sky-high, so none dares to open new textile mills or expand old ones in that city. Ahmedabad is comparatively much cheaper. So Ahmadabad has more prospectus of development of cotton textile industry as compared to Mumbai.Cloth produced by Ahmedabad is of much cheaper rate and thus it has ready markets among the local people.On the other hand the cloth produced by Mumbai is much costlier and thus its range is limited tohigh class only.Mumbai is already over-crowded as compared to Ahmedabad so there is no scope of any expansion in that city. The problem of pollution is much more in Mumbai because of over congestion and thus there is very limited scope of any further establishment of cotton mills in Mumbai.
