Power-loom owners confront labour shortage

03
Feb '10
Surat's textile industry is confronted with shortage of labour on account of the forthcoming religious festivals in Andhra Pradesh and Orissa. A huge chunk of migrant workers have requested for leave as they wish to visit their native towns for the festivals.

Ganjam district of Orissa is the hometown of most of the workers engaged in power loom sector. These workers have started making preparations for their main Dandi Yatra festival which follows after Holi.

Preparations have also been commenced by the textile workers from Warangal district of Andhra Pradesh, for their Sammaka Saralamma Jatara festival.

Apart from Orissa and AP, lots of workers from UP, Bihar and other states are also engaged by the Surat's textile industry. These workers join their families in their hometown for Holi celebrations.

Due to such a large scale migration of the labourers, the textile mill owners are confronted with production issues. The workers visit their hometown once a year and they will rejoin in the second week of May as they come back after 10 days of conclusion of their festivals.

The industry is anticipated to experience a significant loss due to such large scale migration. Quite a few textile mill owners are even requesting the labourers to stay back and at the same time are also offering them additional pay, but to no avail.

The workers visit their hometown once a year and they will rejoin in the second week of May as they come back after 10 days of conclusion of their festivals.
