Faridabad Dye Industries Urge For Textile Park

Faridabad Dye Industries Urge For Textile Park

Dye industries operating in Faridabad has demanded that the government should provide them a dedicated textile park with a common treatment plant (CTP) having sufficient water supply in response to the notice received from the National Green Tribunal (NGT).

The directions of NGT came while hearing a petition filed by two Faridabad residents who alleged that over 150 jeans dyeing industries in the district were running without the consent of the Haryana Pollution Control Board (HPCB).

They claimed that the dyeing industries were directly discharging effluents into drains without any treatment and have also not installed any effluent treatment plant in their premises.

The executive director of Faridabad Industries Association (FIA) Col. S Kapoor said that dye industries are ready to move if government allocates a dedicated textile park to the industry with a centralised treatment plant.

25 years back Supreme Court ordered to shift dye industries from Delhi to Faridabad. The industries were allotted a dedicated land and at that time there were no residential areas in and around.

He further added after urbanization, residential areas came up near to the industries and that was when the problems started. Kapoor said the textile park should be allotted to them near Faridabad because the entire business of the industries is in Delhi-NCR. If they are forced to go far, their supply line would spread and they won’t remain competitive.
