Textile industries in Ludhiana face labour crunch

22
Jun '10
Currently, industries in the state of Punjab are experiencing acute labour crunch. The industries have seen difficulties in solving this issue, in spite of providing salary hike to labourers of unskilled, semi-skilled or highly skilled categories.

Textile industry, which is believed as a labour-intensive industry, is obviously affected hard with such a labour crunch. As a remedy over such a situation, a number of Ludhiana textile manufacturers have started hiring specialists and are outsourcing their work to become less dependent on labourers.

Ludhiana is recognized as a textile hub, wherein industrialists are changing their operating styles, so that lesser labourers are required. For suggesting ways to reduce dependence on labourers, specialists are hired who suggest measures such as doing automation in all possible areas to minimize the dependence on labourers.

Mechanized transport system has been adopted by many units to shift material from place to place. Many of the industrialists have also accepted that automation is the most required thing today. However, industries, which have been practicing automation since past few years, are still facing 10 percent shortage of labourers, informed an industrialist.
