The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) has welcomed the Union Budget 2020-21 terming it to be positive, growth-oriented and in the right direction. It has hailed the Scheme for Remission of Duties & Taxes on Exported products, abolition of anti-dumping duty on PTA, review of rules of origin, and various initiatives for MSME sector.

Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the budget in Parliament today.

"The budget has stated that the Scheme for Remission of Duties & Taxes on Exported products will be launched this year, which will refund the duties and taxes levied at the Central, State and local levels, such as electricity duties and VAT on fuel used for transportation, which are currently not getting exempted or refunded under any other existing mechanism. The implementation of this scheme will certainly go a long way in improving the competitiveness of the textiles products in the export markets," said TEXPROCIL chairman KV Srinivasan.

On abolition of anti-dumping duty on PTA, Srinivasan said, "This is an important decision as PTA is a critical input for the textile fibres and yarns and removal of the duty will make its availability to the industry at competitive prices and give a boost to downstream value added product."

The proposed National Technical Textiles Mission with a four-year implementation period from 2020-21 to 2023-24 at an estimated outlay of ₹1,480 crore will give the much needed encouragement to the technical textiles sector and provide the much needed breakthrough in product development, according to Srinivasan.

He also welcomed the various initiatives in the budget for the MSME sector such as increasing the threshold for audit of books of account from ₹1 crore to ₹5 crore. "Provision to enable NBFCs to extend invoice financing to the MSMEs etc will also lead to ease of doing business for these units."

On imports, Srinivasan said the decision to review the Rules of Origin under all FTAs, strengthening the safeguard measures to deal with surge in imports, and the review of all customs duty exemptions will protect the domestic manufacturers, which in turn will encourage “Make in India” initiative.
