Tirupur farmers against revival of polluting dyeing units

Aug '11
Farmers in Tirupur are strongly condemning the recent decision of the high-level committee formed under Union Textiles Secretary to develop techniques to put a stop to the losses that the entrepreneurs are suffering because of shutting down of dyeing units, and also to restore operations at these closed units.

The next meeting of the Committee led by Union Textiles Secretary and representatives of Tirupur Exporters Association and Dyers Association, constituted to deal with the environmental and financial concerns of the dyeing units, is scheduled to be held on August 24, where the Committee is likely to finalise measures for revival of the closed dyeing units in Tirupur.

The farmers' body is enraged over the way the Committee has been set up as it is made up of members of the same dyeing community who were charged by the farmers in River Noyyal contamination case, which caused the dyeing units to cease operations. Moreover, there are no farmer representatives included in the Committee.

The farmers' body has submitted a petition to the Union Textiles Secretary saying that the closure of the dyeing units was ordered by the Madras High Court as these units failed to adhere to the zero liquid discharge norms, and thus the Committee has no powers to order revival of operations of these units.

The farmers' community has asserted that if the Committee goes on with the proposed plan of assessing the quantum of finance required for upgradation of the Common Effluent Treatment Plants (ETPs) and present a report on the same before the government, then they would approach the court as Hon'ble Supreme Court in its decision against the dyers has already stated that “polluters to pay”, that is the dyers need to bear the burden of cost of installing the ETPs.
