Shares of KPR Mill Limited rose 17 per cent to hit an all-time high of Rs 2,349.60 on BSE after the Union Cabinet approved production linked incentive (PLI) scheme for the textile sector for manmade fibre (MMF) apparel and fabrics and 10 segments of technical textiles to make the Indian textile sector globally competitive.

The scheme will help in increasing India's share in the manmade textiles and technical textiles sector, Textiles Minister Piyush Goyal said.
