Smriti Irani resolves cutting of carpets issue at ports

During a meeting held with stake holders of the carpet weaving industry, textile minister Smriti Irani assured the carpet industry that carpets would not be cut by customs officials, to determine the price of these products. The meeting was held in response to an issue raised by carpet exporters that port authorities were damaging carpets by cutting them.

Irani told the finance ministry officials that cutting of carpets led to carpets getting damaged, due to which exporters were not able to realise the full value of their carpets.

“She also suggested taking assistance of the Textiles Committee Office in Mumbai and the Indian Institute of Carpet Technology, Bhadohi, to determine other ways to determine prices,” media reports said.

Najeeb Shah, chairman, Central Board of Excise & Customs assured the minister that a mechanism in consultation with the textiles ministry would be worked out, to determine prices in a different manner, to avoid cutting of carpets. (AR)
