Four-day gas suspension to hit textile industry
31
Dec '09
A 'Gas Load Management Plan' had been announced by the Government to provide non-stop gas supply to the domestic consumers, in winter season. As per this plan, gas would not be provided for two days in a week, instead of which now the textile industries are facing four-day gas suspension in a week, which has resulted in closure of majority of textile units in the country.

This uneven gas supply to the textile industry forced it to suffer loss of about Rs. one billion per month, claimed the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA). In order to run their plants smoothly on account of the two day staggering of gas supplies, a number of industrial units had shifted to electricity.

In addition to this, now the industry is facing more challenges due to the gas-load-shedding beyond two days. Owing to gas and electricity dearth in the country, shipments of textile products experienced negative growth rate of 3.21 percent during first five months (July-November) of the current fiscal (2009-10) compared to the corresponding period of the last fiscal.

Textile exports stood at $4.203 billion during this period, against $4.343 billion during same period of 2008-09, as per the Federal Bureau of Statistics. Experts aver that, industry entrepreneurs will find it difficult to achieve the textile export target of $ 25 billion set for next five years (2009-14), if the same situation continues in future.
