Pakistan Korangi tannery units may shutdown: PTA

Feb '14
Several tanning units in the Korangi Industrial Area (KIA) of Pakistan may close down as the tannery zone has not been receiving water since long from the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB), according to the Pakistan Tanners Association (PTA).
 
The PTA condemns the KWSB for not being successful in the procedures after installation of the water pipeline in KIA for supplying water to the cluster of leather industries operating in the zone. The pipeline was laid a year ago but water has not been released yet, due to which the pipeline has started rusting, states the PTA.
 
PTA chairman Fawad Jawed has urged the Governor of Sindh province Ishrat Ul Ebad Khan to direct KWSB to complete the project and release water into the mains so that the water-intensive exporting leather industry can survive from a total collapse.
 
According to the PTA official, the tannery zone in KIA has not been receiving water from KWSB since over a decade and the only source of water is from underground wells which are drying up.
 
Mr. Jawed said that the tannery zone is facing a drought like situation and the KWSB continues to delay the supply of water to the biggest national cluster of leather industries which contributes over 35 percent of total leather exports from the country.
 
The PTA official appealed to the Governor of Sindh to take action regarding the matter and Sindh minister of local government Sharjeel Memon to prioritize the issue and salvage the leather industries operating in the zone.
