Dr Anjum Ali Buttar, Director General of Agriculture Punjab, has revealed that the Punjab State Government is likely to make amendments in the Cotton Control Act with the sanction of all the stakeholders, and that the government has contacted the cotton cultivators, ginners, spinners, etc. about this.

This was revealed by him, while speaking to a delegation of the Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association (PCGA) led by Nawab Shehzad Ali Khan Vice Chairman (South). Dr. Buttar further stated that, the government was rigorously executing its programme for upgradation of the ginning industry intended towards energy conservation and packing of ginned cotton as per the global standards.

He stated that, Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Chief Minister of Punjab, showed interest in upgradation of the textile and ginning industry and has also launched an exclusive plan in this direction. He said that, ginners are all needed to pile up cotton in bales of 170 kg. However, he added that, the data of cotton arrival in ginneries laid by the agriculture departments could not be matched with the PCGA figures. Lastly, he said that the draft of proposed amendment in the Cotton Control Act has been given to PCGA, APTMA and other stakeholders.
