SIMA hails NGT order on Rajasthan textile units
Nov '15
The Southern India Mills' Association (SIMA) has welcomed the National Green Tribunal's decision to lift the ban on the operation of textile units in Rajasthan and described it as a Diwali bonanza for the ailing textile industry.

The NGT's Circuit Bench of Jodhpur had ordered closure of 739 textile units in Balotra and its surrounding areas of Jasol, Bithuja in Rajasthan in May last for not following norms laid down by Pollution Control Board (PCB).

In its November 4 order, the NGT has specified certain conditions like installation of primary treatment plant, connecting all the dyeing units to the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) and disposing the sledge in specified areas and directed Rajasthan PCB to renew the consent immediately after fulfillment of the conditions.

In a statement, SIMA Chairman M Senthilkumar expressed hope that the problems would end very soon as majority of the dyeing units were prepared to reopen the units, which would be a Diwali bonanza for the ailing spinning sector and help to improve capacity utilisation.

He said the weaving clusters in Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, accounting for over 70 per cent of the power looms in the country and also handloom clusters utilising the dyeing facilities in Rajasthan, were seriously affected following the closure of dyeing units. (SH)
