HC orders Tirupur dyeing & bleaching units to shut down

Jan '11
Tirupur contributes one fifth of the country's overall textile exports. The textile industry in Tirupur has been adversely affected by the decision of the Madras High Court to close all dyeing as well as bleaching units.

The High Court order is going to influence about 720 units, which provide employment to around 40,000 to 50,000 workers and is likely to cause a loss of Rs 500 million per day.

There was a hearing of the contempt petition on the contamination of River Noyyal flowing through Tirupur, yesterday. The dyeing as well as the bleaching units contributed towards the pollution of the river. Further these units could not start their operation until all the wastes were discharged.

According to the Tirupur Exporters Association (TEA), the textile industry in Tirupur will suffer severe loss and almost come to a standstill because of the decision. The industry will incur a loss of Rs 500 million every day. The sector has just come out from the problem of yarn price hike and now, this issue has emerged. Export of textile products are also likely to be affected by this decision.

TEA has made an appeal to both the state as well as union government to mull over the importance of this matter and come out with suitable solution to help these units.

The public interest litigation against the dyeing and bleaching units had been filed long ago in 1996 and it had sought directives from the Madras bench for checking the problem of pollution in the river.

According to the petitioner, the dyeing and the bleaching units discharge their industrial wastes into the river, thereby contaminating it and rendering the river water unfit for various uses such as irrigation.

The petitioner revealed that, in spite of a number of orders for closing down the units from the Madras High court, no action has been taken, as a result of which the present contempt petition was filed.
