Surat power loom weavers oppose duty on polyester yarn

Surat power loom weavers have opposed yarn spinners’ demand for raising anti-dumping duty from 5 per cent to 10 per cent on polyester yarn imported from China and Vietnam. The spinners, who have written to the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping Duties, had earlier demanded anti-dumping duty on nylon filament yarn imported from China and other Asian nations.

Surat power loom weavers have opposed yarn spinners’ demand for raising anti-dumping duty from 5 per cent to 10 per cent on polyester yarn imported from China and Vietnam. The spinners, who have written to the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping Duties, had earlier demanded anti-dumping duty on nylon filament yarn imported from China and other Asian nations.

According to the Federation of Gujarat Weavers Welfare Association (FOGWA), the anti-dumping duty on filament yarn is against the smooth functioning of the power loom sector. If the DGDA agrees, then over 2 lakh power loom machines will shut down, rendering over 1.5 lakh workers jobless, a top Indian English-language daily reported.

FOGWA president Ashok Jirawala said anti-dumping duty on nylon and polyester filament yarn will impact 10,000 weavers. The industry is already suffering from the last 11 years due to the anti-dumping duty on nylon, he added.
