IJMA urges Govt to ban raw jute exports

03
May '10
To ensure the availability of raw material for the local industries, the Indian Jute Mills Association (IJMA), apex body for Indian jute industries, has requested the government to impose an urgent ban on the exports of raw jute.

In line with the restriction of overseas sales of raw cotton, IJMA has urged the textile ministry to interfere and thereby, restrict exports of raw jute.

While the government decided to restrict cotton exports from April 19, to ensure adequate supply of the raw material to local textile industries, IJMA too, feels that, the overseas sales of raw jute to foreign countries such as Pakistan, Vietnam and China are generating a problem for the local jute firms.

As per the industry figures, during April – October 2009, around 73,000 bales of raw jute were sent to Asian, African and European countries.

Till the time, the problem of virtual shortage of raw material and the increasing jute prices are dealt with, IJMA has urged the government to suspend all compulsory pre-shipment registration of raw jute and jute waste goods, if any, till further orders.

The apex body has also alleged that, illegal exports of raw jute have been taking place via different ports of the country and also through the borders of Nepal and Bangladesh.
