The second meeting of the Cotton Yarn Advisory Board (CYAB) has been convened under the Chairmanship of Shri.A.B.Joshi, Textile Commissioner on 29.10.2010 in the Office of the Textile Commissioner, Mumbai.

In a press release issued, Shri.A.Sakthivel, President said he attended the meeting and stressed the point that the non-availability of cotton yarn and increased yarn prices have driven the Tirupur knitwear export units to despair and added Tirupur exporting units, which gained the market over the period of years, would lose those markets and in future, it would be difficult to penetrate the same market again, since, the buyers would resort to our competing Countries and wish to continue to do the business with them. Shri.Sakthivel also mentioned that the continuance of this alarming situation would lead to job loses.

Shri.Sakthivel said he had requested CYAB to recommend for implementation of the following measures immediately so as to ensure the availability of cotton yarn in domestic market and also for reduction of cotton yarn prices.

Impose ban on cotton yarn exports immediately till the yarn supply restored to normal level in the market.
