TEA bats for count & month-wise yarn export cap

The Tirupur Exporters' Association (TEA) has suggested that the export of cotton yarn should be capped at 600 million kg for the current financial year, and that even a monthly quota should be fixed alongside a count-wise export cap.

TEA President, a Sakthivel said that, a month-wise calibration is needed for circumventing the abnormal rise in cotton yarn prices in the local market, and also to ensure adequate supply of cotton yarn to the downstream industries.

He said that, as the cotton season starts in October only, permission for cotton yarn exports should be granted from January to December.

Further that, no exports should be allowed in the count range from 1s to 40s, and even in unavoidable situations, exports should be allowed only to the extent of the 20 percent of the volume decided in this count range, he added.

It the government lacks the will to cap cotton yarn exports, it would badly hit the downstream industries, particularly the knitwear garment exporting units, and would straight way benefit the competing nations involved in this trade.

He added that, with such competitive benefits those countries would extend strong competition to India's knitwear garment export in the international markets.
