Textile business rises with easing of lockdown in India

Ludhiana, Punjab

Garment and textile industry of the country is happy over several states easing lockdown and hopeful of movement of their goods in transit and pending delivery. Vinod Thapar, Chairman, Knitwear Club, said that, Maharashtra has relaxed lockdown curbs slightly in several cities, Uttar Pradesh is lifting day curfew from districts having less than 600 coronavirus cases and Rajasthan has announced easing the restrictions at some places. He added that several business activities will start immediately and it is good for garment factories of Ludhiana that were under extreme pressure due to piling of goods worth several hundred crores in the factories, in transit and godowns of transports.

He also said that they are assuming that in next 7-10 days the movement of goods will start though but will not return to normal soon.

According to Harish Kairpal, Finance secretary, Knitwear Club, they are relieved that they have started receiving calls from the customers based in UP, Rajasthan and Delhi for goods that were in transit or held up at the godowns and offices of the transport and hoping that in majority of the states, shops, showrooms would open soon so, and clients will be able to receive the goods.

Narinder Mittal, General secretary, Ludhiana Business Forum, said that, it is a big relief as it is a common practice that they cannot push the customers for payment of the goods, which are undelivered. He added that customers are calling them for finalising the payment schedule of these consignments.
