TEA seeks additional Customs Duty exemptions

The Tirupur Exporters Association (TEA) has welcomed the Budget announcement of the exemption from payment of basic Customs Duty on import of specified fabrics (for manufacture of textile garments for export) of value equivalent to 1 per cent of FOB value of exports in the preceding financial year. But it wants the exemption to be extended to 22 more specialty fabrics.

In a letter to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, TEA President Dr A Sakthivel said the potential to increase India's readymade garment (RMG) exports lies on export of synthetic garments which has a round-the-year global market and the inclusion of additional specialty fabrics in the Customs Duty exemption list will help boost the RMG sector's growth and competitiveness. These specialty fabrics are widely used by Tirupur knitwear garment exporters, Dr Sakthivel said.

Among the 22 specialty fabrics are cotton/polyester and linen blended fabric, cotton and nylon blended fabric, cotton and spandex blended fabric, cotton and polyester and lyocell and elasthane blended fabric and cotton and metalized fibre blended fabric.

Dr Sakthivel said that other than helping the growth of the RMG sector, the inclusion of these 22 specialty fabrics in the Customs Duty exemption list will also help provide more employment to workers. (SH)
