TEA urges Tamil Nadu govt to announce textile policy
Jul '17
The Tiruppur Exporters' Association (TEA) has urged the state government of Tamil Nadu for the announcement of textile policy for the state. The policy will boost investment and will help in the growth of the textile industry including exports, said the association in a representation made to Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami.

States such as Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan and Odisha already have the policy and are attracting investments.

The state textile policy should provide 8 per cent interest subsidy/10 per cent capital subsidy to modernisation or expansion of garment units, said TEA in a statement. Tamil Nadu government should also give incentives for setting up of technical textiles units in the state. It has also sought for the support of the textile department of the state for development of the technical textiles units.

TEA has asked for announcement of 25 per cent capital subsidy for setting up of Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) and also Individual Effluent Treatment Plant (IETP) in the state. Further, they have also requested for power subsidy at 25 per cent to reduce the cost of treatment and processing charges for ETP. Further, the government should also install a separate power station in Tiruppur for the growth of the knitwear sector. The state government should help the Centre in the setting up new textile parks and textile processing parks.

With Tamil Nadu Knitwear contributing 60 per cent of the country's knitwear production, the association has urged for Knitwear Board which can act as a catalyst for growth of this industrial segment.

The association has also requested the state government for reduction of GST rate for job work operations to 5 per cent from 18 per cent and 12 per cent rate on manmade fibres instead of 18 per cent. (RR)
