Large number of entrepreneurs of famous textile industry hub Panipat disappointed by the recent decision by Air Quality Management Commission.

The AQM has declared to run industry only on Piped Natural Gas (PNG) instead of coal in National Capital Region (NCR). Industries based on use of coal will not be permitted to function in the area and directed to shift working of their units from use of coal to PNG by September 30, 2022. 

Several textile manufacturing units and dyeing house in Panipat has decided to shift their industrial units to adjoining states U.P and Punjab having no restrictions over use of coal in industry. They said, running industry on PNG will increase production cost enabling them not to compete prices of textile products with manufacturers in Gujarat and Punjab.

According to textile goods manufacturers, their industry is dependent on dyeing units and in case dyeing industry start shifting to other states will adversely affect Panipat textile manufacturing units.

Maneesh Garg, Young Entrepreneurs Society Panipat, said that, it is not possible to shift from use of coal to PNG in such a short notice since timely deliveries is a challenge before Indian exporters. He said, exporters have already secured orders from foreign buyers on annual supply basis and they may suffer heavy financial loss as a result and their payments will be held up. 

The manufacturers accused government for making sudden decisions like ban on use of coal in industry, use of diesel generating sets all of sudden which harm industry due to non-availability of raw material.

Bhim Rana, President of Panipat Dyers Association said, the entrepreneurs have decided to shift their units to Kairana and Shamli in Western U.P which are quite near to Panipat from where hundreds of workers are employed at Panipat textile and dyeing industry.
