TEA's wish list for Tamil Nadu govt

Apr '15
The Tirupur Exporters Association (TEA) has asked the Tamil Nadu government to include the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) in the state’s textile policy.

It said the state textile policy should provide 5 per cent interest subsidy or 10 per cent capital subsidy for modernization or expansion of garment units as like Gujarat Textile Policy 2012, Maharasthra Textile Policy (2011 – 2017) and Madhya Pradesh special package for textile industry which provides 5 per cent and 7 per cent interest subsidy respectively.

The request for TUFS was part of a 10-point wish list by the TEA. Given that Tirupur’s share of total exports from Tamil Nadu in 2013-14 was 11%, the TEA also wants the government to set up a Tamil Nadu Textile Board for a focused approach for development of textile industry in the state. It also wants a separate state export policy for the promotion of textiles export. Tirupur is a major hub of knitwear exports in India with a share of about 44 per cent of total knitwear exports from India.

TEA’s wish list also seeks a 25 per cent subsidy common effluent treatment plant (CETP) and also individual effluent treatment plant (IETP). The Association wants government incentives for setting up of technical textiles units in Tamil Nadu.

The TEA also seeks improved infrastructure in the form of uninterrupted power supply and a separate dedicated power station in Tirupur for the benefit of the knitwear sector. It also pointed out the road conditions need to be improved to allow export goods to reach ports in time.

The Association also wants the minimum wages for labour employed with knitwear garment sector to be fixed based on the recommendation of the minimum wages committee constituted by the labour department. For te benefit of women workers, the TEA wants the government to set up working women’s hostels in Tirupur as well as labour quarters. (SH)
