Textiles Ministry to tackle pollution by Rajasthan units

Apr '12
The Textiles Minister – Mr Anand Mohan Sharma announced setting up of a committee which would look in to the environmental damages caused by the fabric dyeing and printing units in Rajasthan.

The committee to be headed by the Textiles Secretary, including Rajasthan state officials will try to arrive at an economically-viable solution to tackle the problem.

A team of experts would visit the regions housing these textile units and suggest measures to reduce the environmental impact, Mr Sharma said.

There are around 2,000 dyeing and printing units in the districts of Pali, Jodhpur and Barmer.

The environmental pollution is caused mainly due to the fact that these units do not have effluent treatment facilities to treat the water used by the dyeing and printing plants.
