Surat textile entrepreneurs want power tariff reduced
Textile entrepreneurs in Surat have requested Gujarat’s industries commissioner Mamta Verma to reduce power tariff in the textile sector and make fabrics manufactured in the state competitive to those made in Rajasthan and Maharashtra. Verma recently discussed the state’s new textile policy with the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI).

The policy will be implemented in October, according to a report in a top Indian daily.

Verma was told that the power tariff in Gujarat is almost double that in Maharashtra, raising the cost of the fabrics manufactured in Surat by around ₹5 per metre.

The entrepreneurs, who had invested under the Technology Ungradation Fund Scheme (TUFS), are yet to receive subsidy amount of ₹650 crore from the government for the last two years, and that is hampering modernisation.

The textile entrepreneurs also pointed out that unfinished fabrics manufactured in Surat reach Vietnam and China via Kolkata or Bangladesh and finished fabrics from Vietnam is then dumped at cheap prices in India.

Many textile entrepreneurs from Surat have shifted to Maharashtra in the last six months, powerloom sector leader Devesh Patel said. (DS)
