Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], January 8: India plans to set up ‘Bharat Park’ in UAE where Indian goods show room and warehouses will come up.

He was speaking as Chief Guest during Export Awards function of The Synthetic & Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) on 4th January, 2024 held at Mumbai.

He further stated the future belonged to Man Made Fibre Textiles (MMF).

Shri Goyal informed while speaking on FTA (Free Trade Agreement) with  Japan, Australia, UAE, S. Korea etc. that the utilisation of FTA benefits are very poor in India is a matter of concern.

Shri Piyush Goyal announced that BIS will spend Rs. 40 crore to set up 21 testing laboratories at various places in India.

Shri Bhadresh Dodhia, Chairman – SRTEPC stated that man- made fibre textiles export in 2022-23 touched US$ 5.8 Billion as against US$ 6.8 Billion in 2021-22, registering a negative growth of  (-) 15.3%. Export of technical textiles touched US$ 2.5 Billion in 2022-23 as compared to US$ 2.8 Billion 2021-22, registering a negative growth of (-) 11.9%.

Export of man -made fibre textiles during April to October 2023 have touched US$ 3.1 Billion as compared to US$ 3.4 Billion during the same period last year, registering a negative growth of 9.4%.

Shri Bhadresh Dodhia further stated that ‘we are confident that export of man- made fibre textiles will cross US$ 6 Billion in 2023 – 24 and export of technical textile will cross above US$ 3 Billion’.

SRTEPC will make its best efforts to increase the export of man- made fibre textiles to US$ 11 Billion and export of technical textiles to US $ 10 Billion by 2030, as per the targets given by the government.

Manmade fibre textiles sector is facing the problem of inverted duty structure under GST. There is 18% GST on fibres, 12% on yarns and 5% on fabrics. This is leading to accumulated input tax credits with the manufacturers, which id adding to their cost. SRTEPC requests to cover the entire value chain of MMF Textiles products under same rate of GST.

Shri Dodhia requested government to cover the entire value chain of textiles & clothing under the Interest Equalization Scheme.

SRTEPC distributed 55 Export Awards for the Year 2022-23. Reliance Industries received 6 awards in various categories.
