TN govt hears both sides on Tirupur textiles pollution issue
May '11
In its bid to find a workable solution to the crisis that has engulfed dyeing units in Tirupur, the Tamil Nadu State government has heard the representatives of both the farmers and the dyeing units.

Representatives of the farmers' associations, who met the State Minister for Industries, Thiru. C. Shanmugavelu on May 30, 2011, asked for strict implementation of the High Court order to ensure zero liquid discharge form the dyeing units.

The representatives also asked the government to take strict action against the units that are still functioning in violation of court orders.

The State Minister for Industries was also briefed separately by representatives of dyeing units in Tirupur. They told the Minister that more than 2 million people are affected by the High Court order for closure of 720 polluting dyeing units in Tirupur.

The owners of these dyeing units showed willingness to abide by the High Court order for zero liquid discharge, but expressed their inability to purchase effluent treatment plants and asked the government to finance the same.
