Tamil Nadu weavers call for revival of handloom sector

The Sellur Handloom Cloth Manufacturer's Association has placed several demands for consideration by the state as well as the Central Governments for revival of handloom sector.

The association, based in Sellur region of Madurai district in Tamil Nadu, contended that some private individuals not associated with the textile businesses are stockpiling cotton yarn so as to induce an artificial dearth of commodity. The association urged the state and Central Governments to take necessary measures to stop hoarding of cotton yarn.

The association urged the Central Government to impose a lifetime ban on exports of waste cotton in view of its great demand in local market.

It demanded that the yarn price fixing committee should introduce measures to lower cotton yarn prices. It said the bank loan interest rates should be fixed at six percent for all those engaged in textile production.

Further, the demands included making a provision for making yarn available to handloom weavers at a subsidised rate of Rs. 25 per kg, and to extend the subsidies and tax rebates being provided to cooperative sector weavers to private weavers also.

Moreover, the association called for abolishing the levy of sales tax on cone yarn for powerloom weavers and urged the government to make sincere efforts to end power outages and introduce incentives for handloom exports so as to revive the domestic industry.
