Textile traders protest seizure of imported goods
May '11
The government has been called upon by the Makola Market's textile traders to immediately stop the Local Textile Designers Task Force which crack downed on their shops and confiscated their goods.

The textile merchants claimed that the members of this task force crack downed on their shops and seized a huge volume of imported fabrics, under the pretext that the designs belong to domestic producers.

The traders are claiming such forceful invasion and seizure by the task force as unfair trade practices.

It is being contended that, if designs are illegal, the government should impose a ban on their imports in the country, rather than allowing it first and seizing it later when the traders have paid heavy duty on imports of the same.

The traders suggested that, the domestic producers can be made to deposit samples of their designs with the security agencies at the border, so that the traders can check the same before importing.

Also, they recommended that, the concerned authorities can develop calendars of prohibited designs and sell the same to the traders using which the traders can easily make out the local designs from the foreign ones.

It is even being claimed that, the Task Force members are unknown people and thus there are chances that, some other persons may rob the traders as a task force member.

Thus, with all these issues, the textile traders have called upon the government to urgently resolve the issue, as they claimed that regular invasion by Task force was disturbing their work atmosphere.
