Knitwear manufacturing units in Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu’s industrial life line that employes more than 6 lakh workers, are in trouble because of the intransigent attitude of the customs officials, according to office bearers of Tiruppur Exporters Association, the umbrella organisation of all entrepreneurs in the textile hub.
Chennai: T-Shirts without buttons, shorts without zippers. This is the peculiar situation garment exporters in Tirupur are pushed to, unwittingly, as customs officials sit on Chinese consignments containing millions of zippers, buttons and embroidery accessories without clearing them.
Textile industry in Tamil Nadu said that nearly 500 containers carrying apparel accessories and fabrics are stuck in and around Chennai. These containers have come mainly from China.
