Govt may not ban import of jute products

04
Mar '10
The Indian Jute Mills Association (IJMA) has represented to the Government to impose a ban on the import of jute goods, which does not indicate any quantitative figure.

However, the imports of jute goods are a miniscule proportion of domestic production. The imports during the year 2009-10 (till December 2009) were slightly higher compared to the corresponding period of the previous year, mainly due to the workers strike in the Jute mills from December 14, 2009 to February 13, 2010.

The Government is not considering any ban on the import of jute goods as it would be counter productive for the economy. This was stated by the Minister of State for Textiles, Smt. Panabaaka Lakshmi in the Rajya Sabha today, in a written reply to a question by Shri Moinul Hassan.
