Jodhpur textile industries to be shut for three days
Aug '11
About 300 textile industries in Jodhpur in Rajasthan have decided to shut their operations for three days beginning August 30. The industries have resorted to the step to prove that no havoc-causing effluent is released by their units.

Industrial waste, alleged to be released from the textile and stainless steel industries, has caused havoc in Doli, Dhawa and Araba villages lying in the border areas of Jodhpur and Barmer in Rajasthan. The industrial effluents have dirtied the rain water stored in a pond in Doli village.

Out of the total effluent discharge in Jodhpur city of 220 MLD a day, only about 20 MLD is discharged by industries, including textile industries, under the Jodhpur Pradushan Nivaran Turst, according to Mr. Umesh Lila, Treasurer of the Trust and President of Marudhar Industrial Association.

He said that the effluent discharge included drainage and sewerage, and the textile industries alone cannot be held responsible for the havoc.

He further said that the textile industries in the city are functioning for over 30 years and it is only last year that the problem has cropped up, which indicates that it is not industrial waste that has caused the problem, he said.

He revealed that the industrial waste released by textile industries passes through the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CEPT). “To prove our point that the water does not contain toxic industrial effluents released by us, the industries will remain closed for three days,” Mr. Lila said.
