Amid reports of several textile units in Rajasthan facing financial crisis and slowdown, the State recently reached out to mill owners and industry associations, promising them resolution of issues. At a recent ‘direct dialogue’, representatives of associations from Pali, Balotra, Jodhpur, Bhiwadi, Bhilwara, Kishangarh and Jaipur conveyed their plight.

The representatives demanded rationalising of power tariff, abolition of electricity duty on captive power plants and reduction in the wheeling charges on power purchased from open access, according to a report.

The textile mill owners sought the State Government’s help in ensuring compliance with the National Green Tribunal’s orders and pollution control. The representatives also requested for permission to utilise full electricity produced by solar power plants.
