A one-time grant of two billion rupees for an effluent treatment plant to be set up in Tamil Nadu's Tirupur, which is considered to be amongst India's largest textile hubs, has been announced by the Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee. Though, this has not succeeded in pleasing the industry which was anticipating a grant of five billion rupees.

With a view to support the knitwear sector in Tamil Nadu, a one-time grant of two billion rupees towards setting up a zero liquid discharge system at Tirupur, has been proposed by the government, Mukherjee said while presenting the Budget.

He also added that, the industry which serves as a source of employment for thousands of people will now be in a position to do so without mutilating the environment.

Here there is a need to recollect that, Tirupur's dyeing and bleaching industry was charged with contaminating the water of Noyyal River and affecting the quality of ground water for which Supreme Court penalized it with a fine of around Rs. 500 million.

An industry source divulged that, around 20 common effluent plants with an expenditure of eight billion rupees have been set up across the city by the industry. Also Rs. 1.2 billion have been granted for the project by Tamil Nadu government.

A Sakthivel, President of Tirupur Exporters' Association (TEA), however greeted introduction of textile sectors' exclusive skill development programme, terming it to be need of the hour for knitwear garment industry and added that the move will help in boosting up labour productivity.

Sakthivel said, the Rs 24 billion allocated under Technology Upgradation Fund (TUF) would help those who had borrowed under the scheme to meets their working capital needs.
