Punjab, Haryana ginners seek relief from state governments
Oct '15
With the cotton crop in Punjab and Haryana virtually devastated by whitefly attack, ginners in the two states have sought government sops to stay viable, according to a media report.

While ginners in Punjab have demanded that the state government waive market fee and rural development fund (RDF) levy on cotton and relax power rates, their counterparts in Haryana, have sought removal of disparities in tax structure and fiscal incentives for existing units to boost the seasonal industry.

Punjab Cotton Factories & Ginners' Association said it made the demand so that its members may purchase crop from Haryana and Rajasthan to prevent the entire ginning industry in Punjab from collapsing. The Association also said the industry was financially is such bad shape that it has not been able to pay monthly minimum power charges.

It has demanded that the government charge on the basis of actual consumption instead of fixed charges from the ginners.

Punjab ginners have also sought relief from the state government in view of lesser cotton arrivals after the whitefly attack on the crop. (SH)
