Gangwar launches e-auction of NTC yarn

As part of its efforts for greater transparency, efficiency and better price discovery, the National Textile Corporation (NTC) has commenced e-auction of yarn. The first e-auction of NTC yarn was launched by Textiles Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar, in his office on December 10, a Textiles Ministry statement said

The decision to adopt e-auctions has been taken in order to give maximum opportunity to dealers for lifting of NTC stock and thereby reduce inventory and improve cash flow. The transparent electronic bidding process is also expected to result in better price discovery of the yarn stock.

Initially, three mills of NTC - Vijamohini Mill, Kerala Lakshmi Mill and Rajnagar mill have been selected for selling of its produce through e-auction. NSEiT, a National Stock Exchange subsidiary that has been conducting e-auctions for various PSUs, has been roped in to conduct the e-auction of yarn.

The e-auction route has been made open for all registered dealers of NTC. Each dealer has been provided a unique ID and password, and trained by way of mock e-auctions and practice sessions.

In future, e-auction shall be extended to the open market as well (after registering the dealers).

Base prices will be fixed on Wednesday every week and e-auction will take place on Thursday from 3:30 PM to 4:00 PM. The sale shall be completed and material will be allotted as per the highest bid and quantity, as the case may be. There may be more than one winner for one count of yarn.

Currently, yarn is sold through dealers, registered mill-wise with NTC as per due procedure. Prices are fixed every Wednesday and the yarn is sold to dealers on the YPC rates for the entire week (unless there is a mid-week change).

The stock at the fixed / agreed price is then made available to the registered dealers/agents, who lift the material; payment is made as per NTC rules. At present, 4-6 dealers are registered with each mill. If the material is not sold, the same remains unsold and stock piles up.

The e-auction mechanism provides an opportunity to circumvent this problem, leading to higher stock up-take, reduced inventory and improved cash flow. (SH)
