Our dyes do not violate any laws – DMAI President

Jun '07
The information about growing market for dyes and chemicals has been splashed in the media for a while, now. However, when Fibre2fashion contacted Dye Manufacturers Association of India (DMAI) President, Janak Mehta, he explained that the growth in the market is not as big as it is reported. The development is slight. He told us that fortunately, the buyer countries have now started looking towards India and China for these products.

Regarding the dyes produced by DMAI, Mehta said, “Most of the raw material for our goods is domestically produced. We manufacture dyes that do not violate any laws. We ensure strictly that no harm is caused to environment or nature.”

He also informed, “We export significant amount of our products, chiefly to EU, US and Australia. The quality of Indian textile dyes is most favorable in the global market. We have not had any issues regarding the quality.”

As for domestic market, President stated, “Textile industry is growing rapidly, here. We are working to gain a strong hold of market in cities like Surat, Tirupur and Ludhiana. We will in near future spread to smaller regions, also.”

Finally, he beamed, “DMAI is enhancing all manufacturing segments. We have set the target of Rs12000 crore by 2011 and are progressing in the direction amazingly. We are definitely meant to meet the goal!”
