The Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA) president T Rajkumar has thanked Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa for taking up the cause of the textile industry with the Prime Minister last week.

In a press release, Rajkumar appreciated Jayalaithaa’s recommendation to the Centre to allot Rs.1500 crores for the textile mills in Tamil Nadu under TUF Scheme. He pointed out that due to delay in disbursement of subsidy under TUF scheme for the last one year, textile mills in Tail Nadu are facing financial crunch.

The SIMA chief said that he was hopeful of getting the TUFS allocation for the textile industry with the support of Chief Minister.

The Tirupur Exporters Association (TEA) had also thanked Jayalalithaa for including textile related issues in a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said it was confident that the issues would be resolved soon.

Jayalalithaa’s memorandum to the PM week highlighted textile related issues such as the release of 13th Finance Commission grant an amount of Rs 200 crores for completion of 18 Common Effluent Treatment Plants in Tirupur to achieve Zero Liquid Discharge and TUFS subsidy pending claims. (SH)
