Source:   New Indian Express City   : Chennai Published On   27-10-2009  

 

THE Dyers Association of Tirupur (DAT) has postponed its indefinite strike scheduled for Monday to December 1, following an assurance from the State government that the issue of levying a fine ordered by the SC would be looked into in six weeks.

After an executive committee meeting of the association on Sunday night, DAT president Samiappan said, "Union Textile Minister Dayanidhi Maran and the Deputy Chief Minister have told the association that they need some more time to bring an amicable solution to the issue." Hence, the DAT decided to postpone its strike.

The DAT had recently decided to go on an indefinite strike from Monday, following the Supreme Court's order to pay a fine of Rs 62.3 crore over the issue of effluent discharge in the Noyyal river. During the meeting with the representatives of the DAT on October 18, Dayanidhi Maran promised to consider their demands and the Central government was also urged to fulfill the requests of the dyers in Tirupur for safeguarding the garment industries.

Samiappan said, "The Deputy CM also promised to consider all possible measures to overcome the present crisis and assured to speed up the process of getting subsidy from the Central and State governments for the already established 20 Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs)." "With the hope of getting a permanent solution for the effluent problem from the State and Central governments, the DAT decided to postpone the indefinite strike, " he added.
