Gas rationing commences in RMG sector
Jan '10
Following the decision taken in a meeting between the leaders of the RMG and textile sectors and Petrobangla Chairman Hossain Mansur held at Chairman's office on 21 January, gas rationing in textile and readymade garment (RMG) sector has begun.

The decision was taken to ensure better gas supply to industrial and household users who have been suffering due to scanty gas supply.

In accordance with the move, rationing for one day in a week has been started in Narsingdi and Ghorashal areas on rotation basis. Petrobangla for the purpose divided Dhaka and its adjacent areas in to seven zones.

However, exemption has been given to dyeing, knitting, finishing, printing, and sizing mills as they are required to carry on production on continuous basis.

At present there are about 1,300 spinning, dyeing, finishing, weaving, sizing and printing plants, 4,500 garment factories and 1,700 knitwear units in the country. Of all the factories 60 percent of them are situated in Savar, Ashulia, Mirpur and Gazipur.

The move drew mixed reactions from the industry people as, some factory owners pronounced it to be beneficial to them, whereas others held that they will have to confront production loss due to such rationing.

In order to review the situation at large, leaders of Bangladesh Textile Mills Association, an organization of bulk gas consumers, are to convene a meeting, shortly.
