Surat textile industry hikes wages of workers up to 15%

Following the shortage of textile workers in India’s biggest textile hub of Surat, most of the textile units have decided to give 10-15 percent wage hike to the workers.

Mr. Arun Jariwala, Chairman of Federation of Indian Art Silk Weaving Industry (FIASWI), told fibre2fashion, “There is huge shortage of workers in the textile industry since only 75 percent of the laborers have come back for work after Diwali vacation”.

“Due to the existing shortage, the textile units have decided to give an average of 10-15 percent wage hike,” he adds.

Devkishan Manghani, president of Federation of Surat Textile Traders Association (FOSTTA), says, “There is a huge shortage of textile laborers now because many workers have not returned back after vacation. Considering the increase in demand for workers, several textile units have increased the wages of workers.”

However, in other parts of the country, the wage of textile workers remains unaltered. “Wage hike is connected with demand and supply of workers and at present, there is no plan to increase the wages of the cotton workers,” opines Mr. Rakesh Vaid, President of North India Cotton Association (NICA).
