PCGA recommends National Cotton Policy to help growers

The Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association (PCGA) has sought announcement of a National Cotton Policy after taking opinion of all the stakeholders and announcement of the support price of cotton so as to help the troubled cotton producers in the country.

The demand was put forward by PCGA Chairman Ammanullah Qureshi, along with ex-Chairman Muhammad Akram and association spokesperson Shehzad Ali Khan.

In addition, the PCGA officials reiterated their demand that the Government must direct the Trading Corporation of Pakistan (TCP) should start purchasing cotton.

They stated that the monopoly of textile industries is detrimental for crop cultivators, as the buyers employ tactics like delaying procurement to earn higher profits.

They claimed that cotton cultivators and ginners in the Sindh region are at the mercy of the textile industry, which is procuring their produce at nominal prices.

Mr. Qureshi said that banks had ceased debt limits of the ginners, which has rendered them unable to procure raw cotton (phutti) from the farmers on cash. He thus restated his demand for implementing the relief package for ginners in the flood affected regions, remit loan mark-ups and easing the terms and conditions for granting loans.

He recommended that the Government should immediately step forward and procure low grade and grade III cotton, else the ginners would be compelled to cease buying 'phutti'.

He further stated that in spite of the Sindh region losing two million bales of cotton due to floods, the country is still expected to record an output of 14 million cotton bales this season.

The PCGA Chairman said farmers have invested large efforts to reap bumper crop this season, but in spite of this there has been no appreciation from the side of the Government.

He recommended that the Government should end all restrictions on cotton exports and there should be no requirement for depositing the surety amount or following complicated procedure.
