ICF president reiterates demand to setup Cotton Board
04
Nov '16
In a memorandum to the union textiles minister Smriti Irani, J Thulasidharan, president of the Indian Cotton Federation (ICF) reiterated the demand to set up a Cotton Board on the lines of the Jute Board and Coffee Board. He had earlier made the same demand to promote and monitor development of the fibre at the AGM of the ICF held in September.

A leading daily quoted him as saying in the memorandum that raw cotton needs a regulatory mechanism, since the primary data which is available currently on cotton acreage and production is more of an estimate rather than factual figures.

According to J Thulasidharan, dependable statistics can only guide policy initiatives, so ginning and pressing factories must report the pressing figures, while marking of bales should be made mandatory.

The memorandum also added that the Seed Act is outdated and the norms for certification are not appropriate for the new generation of cottonseeds.

“Since, there are over 400 cottonseed producers in the country, so norms for certification should be made more stringent and laws amended,” the memorandum informed. (AR)
