Dr A Sakthivel, Chairman, AEPC welcomed the announcement of Union Budget on the RMG garment industry.  He thanked the Hon’ble Finance Minister in accepting the demand of the industry to restore the ‘zero excise duty route’ for cotton and manmade sector (spun yarn) at the yarn, fabric and garment stage.   He thanked the Hon’ble Finance Minister in accepting the demand of the industry, for which lakhs of workers, entrepreneurs extend their compliments.

Dr A Sakthivel, Chairman, AEPC thanked the Hon’ble Finance Minister for continuing TUF in 12th Plan with an outlay of Rs. 2400 Cr.

The creation of apparel parks within SITP and Rs. 10 Cr. allocation will go in a long way in increasing export of value added textile chain.

Dr A Sakthivel, Chairman, AEPC thanked the Hon’ble Finance Minister for setting aside of Rs. 5000 Cr for helping SME sector through SIDBI.  On behalf of Micro, small and medium enterprises, he thanked the Hon’ble Finance Minister that the benefits or preferences enjoyed by them will stay with them for up to three years after they grow out of the category in which they obtained the benefit.  This benefit will go in a long way in promoting employment.

The announcement of vocational courses offered by the institute affiliated to the State Council of Vocational Training and testing activities would be in the negative list for the service tax.  We are confident that the courses offered by our Apparel Training and Design centers would fall under this category.

Dr A Sakthivel, Chairman, AEPC complimented Hon’ble Finance Minister for ensuring in the Parliament for supporting ensuing Foreign Trade Policy, which is going to be announced next month.

Chairman, AEPC welcomed allocation of Rs. 1000 Cr for Skill Development and hoped that substantial allocation would be made for RMG sector, which allows immediately absorption of workers, displaced from agriculture and undertake lot of responsibility of the Govt. in solving employment problem.

Dr A Sakthivel, Chairman, AEPC, however, appealed that the Finance Minister should consider RMG export sector for certain requests in the case of following:

Dr A Sakthivel reiterated that Hon’ble Finance Minister may approve the proposal of the Council for accepting scheme of increasing garment exports to a level of US$ 30 Bn in the next three years by allowing Manmade fabric and Cotton specialty fabrics at flat 5% custom duty on only 10% of export performance realized in the previous year on exports of garment.  

This will be for exporters of woven and knitwear and shall be for export purposes only on actual user basis to augment the basic raw material for garment export.  He said that this scheme may be approved so that it can be announced during the announcement of Foreign Trade Policy.
