Flooding in Punjab. Surat textile trade suffers
13
Jul '10
The devastating flood situation in the Northern states of Punjab and Haryana has put the textile traders in the textile hub of India; Surat in a quandary. The floods have affected dispatch of orders as well as new orders to these two states.

Punjab and Haryana account for a big chunk of the textile trade from Surat. The transportation routes including railways and roads have been damaged, which has led to disruption of deliveries to towns and cities in these two states.

According to Mr Devkishan Manghani, President of Federation of Surat Textile Traders Association (FOSTTA), “Yes, floods in Punjab and Haryana will affect the industry in Surat. Due to floods, there are road blocks and railways are not working timely, so there is a problem in delivering the goods.”

He added by saying, “If there is no improvement in the situation within 15-20 days, then there will be huge loss in the trading business of dress material as there are also orders that have yet not been delivered”.
