TEA seeks financial support for CETPs

With common effluent treatment plants (CETPs) under financial stress in the garment sector in Tirupur, the Tirupur Exporters' Association (TEA) has appealed to the Centre for financial support to keep the effluent treatment plants running that would enable it to retain the competitive edge in the global garments market.

In a memorandum to the Union Environment minister Prakash Javadekar TEA President A Sakthivel said Tirupur common effluent treatment plants (CETPs) invented the unique zero liquid discharge technology and helped turn the Tirupur garment export to become a Rs 21,000 crore business. But a huge delay in sanctioning the promised grants has put all CETPs under severe stress.

"We request the minister to help release Rs 200 crore as a special grant which had been already allocated under the 13th Finance Commission," Sakthivel said. He also requested for service tax exemption to CETPs as the service is provided only to their own members.

At present CETPs and individual effluent treatment plants are not considered for support under technology upgradation fund scheme (TUFS). Since both CETPs and IETPs (individual effluent treatment plants) are as important as other processes in textiles, TUFS should be extended to them also and they should be provided with 50 per cent subsidy mainly to modernise the plants, Sakthivel said.

The memorandum also sought government help for setting up processing parks nearer to the sea and to provide 100 per cent subsidy so that treated effluent can be discharged into the sea. (SH)
