Small scale timber traders seek protection

Staff Reporter

Kozhikode: The Kozhikode Timber Merchants’ Association has demanded that any decision on the “lorry turn system” for transporting timber should protect small-scale merchants.

T.O. Sooraj, Director of Industries and Commerce, is studying the problems arising out the system and will submit a report.

Under the system, the merchants do not have the right to choose the vehicle to transport their goods.

Each lorry has to wait for its turn to ply.

P.V. Lakshmanan, general secretary of the association, has submitted a memorandum to Mr. Karim on the problems.

The associations says requisitions for timber from places such as Mumbai and Pune are on the decline as industries there found it more expensive than transporting timber from Mangalore when factoring in the timber and transport costs.

This has helped the merchants of Mangalore.
