TN govt releases Rs 1.274bn for CETPs in Tirupur

The ongoing tussle between local farmers and owners of dyeing units in the south Indian textile town of Tirupur over the issue of discharge of waste water is soon likely to get resolved as Tamilnadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa has released an order for allocating Rs. 1.274 billion to 15 common effluent treatment plants (CETPs) in the region.

The official statement said waste water discharged by 754 dyeing units and 20 CETPs of the region was flowing into Noyyal River and other reservoirs whose water was used for irrigation purpose.

Hence, following a plea by the farmer's federation, Hon'ble High Court ordered establishment of CETPs in 1998.

However, the release stated, the court directions failed to bring an end to the problem. It also cited several legal notifications and court judgements delivered on the issue over the last 10 years.

Thus, relying on a High Court order that came on January 28 this year around 754 dyeing units were shut from February 1 onwards. The move rendered large number of employees jobless, and the Tirupur textile industry suffered a major setback.

Ms. Jayalalithaa, who was well aware of the issue, immediately on assuming the charge as Chief Minister of the State, held a meeting to discuss the issue, the statement said, and added that subsequently, several more meetings were convened to discuss various measures to once again make the dyeing units functional with zero-liquid effluent discharge.

Ultimately, it was decided that equipping the dyeing units with modern effluent processing machines could help tackle the issue.

Thus, a policy decision of allocating two billion rupees to 20 units as interest-free loans was taken and it is pursuant to this decision that the CM has ordered release of Rs. 1.274 billion as credit to these units to help them set up effluent treatment plants to achieve zero liquid discharge, and thus evolving a win-win situation for dyeing units as well as farmers.
