Garment firms upset over workers crackdown

The two billion dollar garment export industry in the NCR region with a work force of 3.5 lakh is feeling the heat of police crackdown on migrant labourers.

Major garment exporters who met at the Apparel Export Promotion Council headquarter on September 22 said about one lakh workers have been forced to leave Gurgaon.

The garments were to be exported to the United States, Europe and Far Eastern countries. As 25 to 30 per cent of workers have either resigned or left Gurgaon because of ongoing drive, the garment production has been severely hit.

"Our buyers abroad have threatened us either to meet the deadline of Christmas or they would cancel the orders," said Mr Sudhir Dhingra, chairman and managing director of Orient Craft, an export house with 18,000 workers. Other export houses and buying houses that participated in the meeting included Pearl Global, Matrix Clothing, Li & Fung India, Impulse, Lyra Industrials and Boutique International.

AEPC's vice-chairman for northern region H.K.L. Magu said nearly 40 per cent of production has been impacted.
