It may be recalled that, the Supreme Court had passed a judgment, which imposed a fine of Rs. 556 million on the dyeing and bleaching industry of Tirupur, for polluting the Noyyal River as they were causing pollution besides impacting the ground water.

Mr Sakthivel of Tirupur Exporters' Association welcomed the announcement and has thanked the Government for conceding the request of Tirupur industry and providing a one time grant of Rs. 200 crore for towards the cost of installation of a Zero Liquid Discharge System at Tirupur.

Mr Sakthivel was happy to note the launching of an exclusive skill development programme in the textile and garment sector as it is the need of the hour to the knitwear garment sector and added that this initiative will right away help to enhance the labour productivity.

He thanked for TUF allocation of Rs.2400 crore and said the allocation would help for reimbursement of interest under TUF scheme to the borrowers who opted for the TUF scheme.
