Textile exporters in Kerala seek benefits under Industrial Policy
Sep '11
Textile exporters belonging to Kannur district in Kerala have demanded that they should be brought within the ambit of the State's upcoming Industrial Policy.

The private handloom and textile enterprises claimed that in spite of their sector employing several workers, none of the benefits under any of the government schemes have been extended to them.

They demanded a change in the criteria and sought that they be treated in lines with the cooperative sector, and government support and benefits should be made available to them, depending on the number of weavers employed.

Kerala Textile Export Organization President Mr. C Jayachandran has sought that the private sector exporters should also be provided with Market Development Assistance.

He stated that the industry is required to make huge investments for setting up pollution and waste control systems, which form a part of their capital investment.

To more sensitize the industry regarding pollution issues, assistance should be extended by introducing state-of-the-art technology and by exclusion of the expenses incurred for installation of the said machinery as capital expenditure, he added.

He highlighted that the Centre has already approved providing a financial assistance of Rs. 30 million for Kannur's 'Urban Haat' project. Pursuant to the same, he said, a permanent exhibition centre should be established and the State government should finalize a plot for the same in vicinity of the city. He urged that the project should be brought within the ambit of the State's Industrial Policy.

Mr. Jayachandran also called for Government support to improve industrial infrastructural facilities in the region. He said the Government needs to make sure that the proposed textile park at Naadukaani be transformed into a special economic zone, by granting an additional land to increase the area allotted to it at present.
