Textile processors in Surat hike job charges
Textile processors in Surat have collectively decided to hike their job charges for processing all types of finished fabrics by ₹2 per metre due to rising costs of dyes, chemicals, coal and textile workers’ wages. The decision was taken during a meeting that was held recently under the guidance of South Gujarat Textile Processors’ Association (SGTPA).

Prices of dyes have increased by 25 per cent, while chemical prices have gone up by 15 per cent. Coal prices have soared by ₹1,500 per tonne and a steep increase has also been witnessed in labour charges in the processing sector, said office bearers of SGTPA.

The association is forced to increase job charges due to increasing costs of raw materials and to withstand slowdown in the processing sector, Jitu Vakharia, SGTPA president told a leading Indian daily. The hike in job charges is likely to increase costs of finished fabrics between 50 paise to ₹3. He said that the production of man-made fibre (MMF) fabric may pick up pace during the festival season.

The MMF cluster of the city produces close to 2 crore metres of fabrics on a daily basis. The city boasts 6.5 lakh powerloom weaving machines and 3.5 lakh machines of those shut down in the last few months. Surat also has over 400 textile dyeing and printing mills.

The hike in job charges may impact the industry which is already witnessing a tough time, said Ashish Gujarati, president of the Pandesara Weavers Cooperative Society. The powerloom sector is currently working only for 8 hours every day to limit production. (KD)
