Tirupur Dyeing units to strike against Apex Court's orders

17
Oct '09
In the wake of Supreme Court's directions to pay up the penalty for polluting water bodies, about 500-odd dyeing units in Tirupur are set to go on strike from 26th of this month.

The Supreme Court asked the Dyers' Association of Tirupur (DAT) to pay the amount required for cleaning Orathupalayam dam and Noyyal River and also to pay the compensation to the affected people, within three months. The total payable amount is up to Rs. 622.4 million, informed Mr. K. Krishnan, General Secretary DAT.

Consenting with the court regarding protection of ecology and environment, Mr. K. Krishnan informed that expenses amounting to Rs 9.45 billion have already been incurred by the dyeing industry at Tirupur to reverse the damage caused, and to upgrade existing 8 common effluent treatment plants (CETPs) in a bid to attain zero liquid discharge (ZLD) and also to set up 12 new CETPs comprising ZLD Systems.

The industry has paid Rs. 76.6 million, Rs. 145 million and Rs. 201.6 million for cleaning and de-silting of dam, compensation to farmers and as a fine, respectively, imposed by Madras High Court for not achieving ZLD before December 2006, respectively.

DAT urged both the governments, Central and State, to grant the capital subsidy of 75 percent for all the CETPs at Tirupur or waive the loans along with interest obtained from the banks to set up CEPTs. It would be difficult for the industry to run the CETPs without government's support, said Mr. Krishnan.

DAT also demanded Tamil Nadu pollution control board to issue 'Consent to Operate' certificate to the CETPs of the industry without pre-conditions. Any kind of trouble in dyeing units would have negative effect on the whole export community.

The projected strike would take its toll on the entire chain of activities such as spinning, weaving and garmenting, so the dyeing units at Tirupur need permanent solution for continued existence, he said.
