EDITORIAL '' There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same''

What the organisations of the industry look out for the forthcoming Budget? By the time this issue falls in the hands of readers, the pre-Budget season must have come to and end. Although all stakeholders are now thirsty of the Budget, analysts, whether in the field or finance or textiles and our readers must be keenly interested to know the demands made by various organizations of the textile industry. The pre-Budget demands do help analysts to appreciate provisions made in the Budget. Hence, Textile Value Chain has decided to present in a comprehensive manner Pre-Budget Memoranda of leading textile organizations, whom we profusely thank for their co-operation and support. A host of textile industry organisations have pleaded for reduction in excise duty on man-made fibres to 6% from 12%. To bring about revenue neutrality, on reducing excise duty on man-made fibres to 6%, some organisation have recommended a mandatory duty of 2% on fibre forward chain including cotton yarn, cotton fabrics, etc along with man-made fibre textiles. Really speaking, there is no justification for imposing higher excise duty on MMF and MMF textiles, particularly when it is a tenet of the principles of taxation that the government should not promote or discourage consumption of same or similar products. st However, once the GST is introduced from 1 April, 2016, there will be the same rate of duty on Cotton and MMF streams of production.

zero duty to super-high-speed shuttleless looms. This may be found irksome by the textile industry. The textile industry looks forward to zero customs-duty regime for all Textile Machinery other than ring frames. If the textile industry is to emerge as the winner in the international race for textiles and garments, it must be encouraged to install state-of-the-art machinery and for this purpose, zero duty window must be opened. To encourage the textile manufacturers to diversity into the manufacture of weaving and processing machinery, government could consider other avenues, like soft loans, liberal TUFS support, assured supply of power at concessional rate etc .

TVC Monthly Issue From Now ... !

With the encouragement, support and appreciation received from our subscribers, advertisers, wellwishers and authors of articles, we are glad to announce that with effect from January 2015, our magazine will be published every month, instead of quarterly as at present. We are planning to introduce several new features in the monthly format for the benefit of our readers, and look forward to receiving the support of all of you with greater zeal.

Like all segments of the industry, Textile Machinery Manufacturers are also keen to guard their turf. One recommendation of theirs is to restrict the benefit of

Even in case we assume cotton reaches 10 billion Kg, we need to invest and increase MMF production from current 4 billion kg to 15 billion kg. This calls for huge investment plan in MMF plant, machinery and high technology to avert this crisis. MMF being highly technology dependant has a potential of

In order to validate the relation of the scheme to that of export of the region, the suitable co-relation model was also used in the estimation. The cost bench marking of the products in these three exporting countries has also been applied so as to study neutralise effects of the cost of production on the scheme. Impact on India: With respect to the impost of T & C, the EU has about $ 235 Bn from the world during 2012, out of which !

It is pertinent to mention that the countries are competing with each other both in segments as well as at product level in these export destinations. While India exports about $6.64 Bn, Pakistan has $3.88 Bn of export. Bangladesh export to EU is mainly consisting of clothing of $14.14 Bn. as in Table â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1.

Hence Pakistan will able to enhance its market share in most of this products of Ch 63 and few products of apparels and cotton yarns due to the implementation of the GSP Plus schemes. Further, the GSP plus advantages be perceived to be accruing to Pakistan are also likely to trigger strong defensive action from textiles lobbies with the EU (i.e. Italy, Portugal and Greece in Textiles, Romania in clothing) and offensive actions may be initiated by the main non-EU competitors of Pakistan (i.e. Bangladesh, China, India, etc.) Conclusion: In synthesis, the extension of the EUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GSP + preferences to Pakistan will certainly boost its competitiveness, but ultimate success in accessing the EU market in greater

Raymond, is a market leader in Worsted fabrics with three manufacturing units in Jalgaon, Chindwara and Vapi.

We studied the feasibility of lean principles in textile plant and performed up to a SKU- level analysis. Raymondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manufacturing plants are vertically integrated and is famously known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;From a !Â&#x201A;# ?& Â&#x201A;# ?Â&#x2039;"< ###     %

We developed new metrics to track our daily waste per       X  Q q##         technique based on the concept that how 80 percent of waste is caused by 20 percent of causes. Several root cause analysis were performed to bring out the possibilities of waste generating areas within the plant. Lean manufacturing and textile is about producing the right product in the right time. We developed a Kanban process, a card system to maneuver the material across the plant and our warehouse follows a state of the art system with lean concepts. Heijunka, a production levelling theory was implemented to eliminate wastage of time and this demonstrated a huge rise in the no. of warehouse pickups per day. Raymondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lean Success story has been due to striving focus and greater awareness among employees towards Lean Manufacturing.

In this process every employee is accountable and implementation of lean has to be done to the root level.
