Set up Knitwear Board in Tirupur: SIHMA tells govt
26
Jul '16
The South India Hosiery Manufacturers Association (SIHMA) has urged the Central government to set up the proposed Knitwear Board in Tirupur.
 
Since around 46 per cent of the knitwear exported from India originates from Tirupur knitwear cluster, it will be appropriate to make Tirupur the headquarters for the proposed board, SIHMA joint secretary R Damodaran said, according to The Hindu.
 
Having the head office in Tirupur will also mean that apparel manufacturers would not have to travel to New Delhi frequently for representing the issues confronting the knitwear industry, Damodaran said.
 
Besides appointment of a chairman to look into the day-to-day operations of the Board, the government should also appoint a bureaucrat to liaison with the Union government, feel knitwear manufacturers.
 
This issue was also taken up in the Parliament by Tirupur MP V Sathyabama. (RKS)
