Surat processing units hike printing & dyeing charges
Apr '11
The South Gujarat Textile Processing Association (SGTPA) has decided to affect a rise of 10 percent in the dyeing and printing charges for textile fabrics from April 15 onwards, due to a rise in the cost of production.

There are likely chances that the consumers would have to bear the burden of this decision as the prices of saris and dress materials may go up.

This decision of the SGTPA came up during a meeting, where the association decided to wind up the strike that it had been observing for past seven days to protest against the rise in the gas prices by the Gujarat Gas Company Limited (GGCL).

As a part of the strike, more than 400 textile processing units in Surat remained closed for seven days. In the meantime, the owners of these units met the Union Petroleum Minister and the State Industry Minister to inform them regarding the problems that they were facing due to hike in the gas prices by GGCL.

However, giving in to complains from members that the processing costs have gone up due to hike in the prices of gas, water, electricity, chemicals and coal, SGTPA consented to raise charges of dyeing grey clothes by 50 paisa per metre and that of printing by Rs. 1.50 per metre.

The dyeing charges for the grey fabric in the processing houses usually vary in the range of Rs. 5.50 to Rs. 16, while the printing charges vary between Rs 2-8 per meter.

SGTPA stated that, the decision was taken unanimously and all the processing houses have been intimated regarding the same. The new charges would become effective from April 15.
