Has Surat's textile industry recovered from the aftermath of GST and demonetisation?
The textiles industry has almost come out of the effects of GST and demonetisation. Both resulted in positive movement for business. The benefit of GST is now being seen, with its major impact being on small-time traders, weavers and units which were earlier tax-free.
How sustainable are your manufacturing units?
We are always upgrading ourselves to face market challenges. We upgrade by installing new machines, backward or forward integrations, providing quality products and presenting new products.
Our last expansion was two years ago. Now looking at the high demand in market, we are planning for the next expansion and reach a capacity of 1,000 MT/M for mother yarn. We will also be introducing new products and enlarging our product portfolio.(PA)
