TEA Request Clearance of Goods Arrived From China

TEA (Tiruppur Exporters Association) request Hon’ble Minister Piyush Goyal to help for immediate clearance of Good arrived from China. They would also like to thank the Hon’ble Minister for taking proactive measures to overcome the obstacles caused due to wake of COVID-19 Pandemic and thereby to witness the revival of textile industry soon.

TEA – President, Raja M Shanmugham told that they are grateful for permitting exports of knitted / woven cloth masks and PPE Medical Coveralls. This will be helpful for the textile industry to grow their exports. And also confidently venture in to manufacturing of new technical textile products and penetrate global market. The latent strength of the industry has been proved.

He told that garment exports is facing a severe competition in the global market from the countries like Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia etc., apart from China and the foreign buyers are always very keen to get the quality product with competitiveness coupled with delivery schedule.

Any delay in making Sea shipment at right time will automatically push the exporters to resort for Air shipment, otherwise the buyers won’t place any future orders and categorize the units as an unreliable supplier.

The knitwear garment export sector has been facing a host of issues further to spread of COVID-19 Pandemic globally and the crippled industry in Tiruppur is now able to run at only 40% – 50% of its capacity and struggling to sustain in the business and also to meet the statutory financial requirements.

With this background, may we be permitted to note that the non-clearance of imported consignments arrived from China for the past 10 days, even after making payment in certain cases is like adding salt to the wound and also incurring demurrage charges. The concern is that this news has given doubtfulness to the buyers on the possibility of exporting of goods as per delivery schedule. While contacting the Customs Authorities, we came to know that they could proceed for clearance of stranded consignment only after getting approval from the form the Central Government.

Considering the gravity of the situation, we request the Hon’ble Minister to help for immediate clearance of the consignments arrived from China, help for exporting of garments without much delay and thereby lift the sagging morale of exporters and sustain in the business.
