ERODE: Textile processing units have urged the State Government to take up effluent treatment.

In a letter to Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, they have said that the government must come forward to take up the work because those involved in the trade would not be able to do so.

“More than 3,500 of the 5,000 persons involved in the trade operate with a capital as low as Rs. 50,000, for whom a treatment plan is impossible. And, given the state of textile industry, it is extremely difficult for processing units to set up treatment plant,” the association has reasoned.

It has said that the Rs. 1,000-crore required is not a big amount for the government that spends thousands and thousands of rupees to protect farmers’ and poor people’s interests.

Environment

The processing industries association has cited the environment angle to urge the government to set up a common effluent treatment plant and added that if the government was to implement the project it will help both the textile processing industry and agriculture.
