Gujarat cotton ginners to go on indefinite strike
Mar '12
At a meeting held in Surendranagar on March 9, the representatives of All Gujarat Ginners Association and Saurashtra Ginners Association decided to stop ginning and pressing factories in the state for indefinite period from March 10, 2012.

The ginners in the state went on strike on March 7 and 8 after the Indian Government announced ban on cotton exports.

Mr. Paresh Valia of Asha Cotton Industries who was present at the meeting, informed fibre2fashion, “The committee members of both organizations have decided to go on indefinite strike from March 10 and a further decision will be taken based on the outcome of a meeting to be held to review the decision to ban cotton exports. The decision regarding continuation of the strike would depend on the Government's decision regarding allowing exports of cotton for which the Government has already issued registration certificate (RC).”

“At the meeting, the members discussed some of the demands that the associations would put forward to the Government, in case the ban on cotton exports is not lifted,” he mentioned.

“The members felt that the Government should not allow the same company to transport cotton bales from one warehouse to another,” Mr. Valia said.

“Secondly, it was proposed that ginners should be given first priority for exports, and exports should be made to end-users only and not to other traders or stockists,” he added.

“Moreover, it was felt that the Government should allow both free import and export of cotton or it can give additional benefits to yarn exports. Additionally, the Government can increase its procurement of cotton through the Cotton Corporation of India (CCI),” he revealed.
