Seeking upgradation: A Common Effluent Treatment Plant of a dyeing unit in Tirupur —

Tirupur: The Dyers’ Association of Tirupur (DAT) has urged the State Government to pressurise the Central Government to include sector specific sops to dyeing units in the stimulus package to be brought out by the Union Commerce Ministry shortly.

In a memorandum to Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, the association president, S. Samiappan, made an appeal to put pressure on the Centre to allocate financial assistance to the dyeing units in Tirupur to offset the cost incurred by them to establish 12 Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) and upgrade eight existing ones recently.

The total outlay of the project stood at Rs. 799.81 crore. The CETPs were designed as per the specifications suggested by the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board to stop indiscriminate discharge of pollutants into water bodies.

“Considering the economic squeeze experienced by the textile industry following recession in Europe and the United States, the Central Government should counter-balance at least 60 per cent of the project cost by releasing special grants to the dyers without any delay,” Mr. Samiappan noted.

The association also pointed out that since majority of the member units were categorised under the small-scale sector, they were forced to raise 80 per cent of the outlay through commercial borrowings.
