idea on where abouts and impacts of GST. Though GST is functional now, the current scenario has not changed much as manufacturers are only focusing on restructuring their system and every investmentis sidelined.

The nation is talking about the burdens that manufacturers and consumers will have to face due to higher GST rates on certain commodities. Such situation is bound to happen the new tax reform would. create chaos and people need expertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion to understand the situation and remodel their structure.

But now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to rise as GST regime is very much into place, all the rates and exceptions are announced and the reform of Indian taxation has begun. The centre has clariX$'&&!   with a positive mindset. There is no going back now, GST isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just a concept anymore, but is the hardcore reality.

If we analyse the growth of manufacturing hub in India since 2012, entire world is eyeing on India as a major contributor for global economy. Whereas Indian investors are only eagerly waiting and holding on their new business ventures with the hope of getting better reforms from government. Though in early 2015 all reforms and government initiative were introduced to boost the manufacturing sector and when things just started taking pace, again there was a pause due to demonetisation as an excuse. This slowdown was further dragged on by the announcement of GST asvarious entrepreneurs had little

A Comparative Assessment Of Impact Of GST On Indian Textile Sector Goods and Service Tax (GST) rolled out on July 1st, 2017 started a new era of economic reform in the country. GST has subsumed all the central as well as state taxes and brought the country into one single regime thus replacing the complex multiple indirect tax structure. This reform is intended to create India into a single market for manufacturing and selling of goods, bring in greater tax compli  `     '&&    '  help in improving manufacturing productivity. GST has now replaced Central taxes and duties such as Excise Duty, Service Tax, Counter Veiling Duty (CVD), Special Additional Duty of Customs (SAD), central charges and cesses and local state taxes, i.e., Value Added Tax (VAT), Central Sales Tax (CST), Octroi, Entry Tax, Purchase Tax, Luxury Tax, state cesses and surcharges and Entertainment tax (other than the tax levied by the local bodies). GST is a destination based tax structure and it is levied only at the consumption point. Under this structure, a merchant has to pay tax only on the value addition of its product and allows manufacturers and retailers to reclaim input tax credit paid during the purchase of raw material &     &  ) &     & '&& = ' to the end consumers. @*   &

The below given table illustrates &&&    the textile industry: On comparison between the two duty structures, cotton value chain which was exempted of any excise duty (ex-

This indicates that the textile industry will be paying higher taxes overall. Textile industry faces a unique issue in the presence of    $  !& X!(  &'& X( & ) &  was prevalent in the earlier tax regime and is still relevant for the new GST regime. The result of such a structure is the accumulation of duty at a certain point in the value chain wherein the duty paid on the input is higher while the duty on the output is comparatively lower. This accu  $!&&X    !$& &Â&#x192;& !  &

 $ which in turn leads to higher prices. Now, with the onset of higher duties, the quantum of duty accumulation will increase which will lead to further increase of prices. To analyze these implications, four basic value chains have been considered which encompasses the majority of textile production in India. a) 100% Cotton Value Chain b) MMF Rich Blended Value Chain - PC (65/35) c) Cotton Rich Blended Value Chain - PC (48/52) d) 100% MMF Value Chain â&#x20AC;&#x201C; PV (50/50) Implications on 100% cotton value chain: Cotton textile value chain attracts a singular rate of 5% across the value chain except on cotton garments with retail value of more than Rs. 1000 per piece. Due to a constant duty rate being charged on subsequent products (with higher value addition) across the value chain, there will be no duty accumulation. At each stage of this chain, manufacturer will be able to avail input credit on the purchase of raw material and will only pay duty for the value addition. Due to the balanced tax structure,

Textile Workers Are Still Feeling The Heat, But The Industry Is Back To Normal After GST Roll Out After initially opposing and resorting to violent protests in Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and other clusters in the country, textile traders have at last given up and are now rushing for GST registration through online and other means. A week ago, the most awkward situation was witnessed in Surat where the textile traders not only dissolved the GST Sangharsh Samiti, but also kicked out the Samitiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder president for misleading the industry and taking the stir against GST in the wrong direction. Fellow members alleged that Tarachand Kasot wasted 19 days of Surat Textile Industry for something which was â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost impossible to achieveâ&#x20AC;?. The textile traders in Surat continued their stir for 19 long days, despite being baton charged and facing arrest by the police, to protest imposition of GST which they feared will destroy the livelihood of over six million fami   ) &$     & stir after failing to get governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  !   ! ;  massive loss of more than 2,800 crore rupees in Surat alone, according to a rough estimate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After protesting for about three weeks, textile traders realised that they do not have any option but to go along with what the government has decided. It is hence they called  &' &ing for GST registrationâ&#x20AC;?, Ajoy Bhattachariya, former president of South Gujarat Chamber of Commerce, and himself a textile trader, said while talking to Textile Value Chain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Routine operation in the city is also coming down to normal though it will take months before the industry comes running to its fullest potentialâ&#x20AC;?, he added. Situation in Bhiwandi and Malegaon &'(   $  ) 'loom units in the two leading textile clusters producing the major share of


grey fabrics and known for their 24x7 culture are still struggling for normalcy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Majority of powerloom units in Malegaon are running for just 3 to 4 days a week since the roll-out of GSTâ&#x20AC;?, Tarique Mahmood of Aliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fabrics said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have all done with GST registration and other necessary requirements. But the problem is that grey cloth merchants and traders in Pali, Balotra and other centers have not yet done their registration hence they are refusing to buy our produceâ&#x20AC;?, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Under such a situation it will be suicidal if we run textile units for the entire weekâ&#x20AC;?, he added. Malegaon alone has about 2.5 lakh powerlooms and produces about 2 crore meters of grey fabrics every day. The city has just three processing units and hence most of the grey fabrics are sent for processing outside. The case with the powerloom weavers in Bhiwandi is also more or less same. But the important factor in the two cities which came out very strongly post GST era is that there was no unrest or anger against the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to impose the levy. Majority of the weavers in the two cities had made up their mind from the day one to adjust their business as per the new situation and were ready to face the challenges whatsoever. It is however the labour&'&&'  due to slowdown in the post GST era. Going by the record, wages of labors who are running 12 looms is about Rs 500 per day and they used to carry home some 2,800 to 3,000 rupees in  '=) &$    !  powerloom units are running just for 3-4 days a week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A labor was paid about 3000 rupees every week before GST was imposed and the powerloom units were run-

It has be` & (( this sumâ&#x20AC;?, Abdur Razzaq, who is working as a supervisor-cum-technician, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some had postponed marriages and other family functions. Still, they had to borrow from others so that they can meet regular expenses, especially of the school going children as the academic year has just begun and money is needed to buy textbooks and notebooksâ&#x20AC;?, he added. Meanwhile, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council in its 20thmeeting on Saturday August 05, 2017 slashed the GST rate on textile job work from the existing 18% to 05%. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One big issue was tax rate for job work in textiles sector. A consensus was evolved that the GST rate for job work throughout the textile chain and even for textile-related items such as apparels, shawls, carpets will be 5 per Â&#x201E;Â&#x2030; X  Z  Â&#x160; $ told reporters after the meeting.

The industry is also upset because the GST Council did not pay heed to their demand of uniform rate on entire textile chain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The industry demand was to completely abolish GST on job work and bring uniform GST rate for entire chain.

Sintex Industries Partners With Truetzschler And A.T.E. For Their One Million Spindle Dream Project Truetzschler India and A.T.E. recently completed phase one of the prestigious Sintex Industries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Yarn Divisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project of 1 million spindles at Rajulah, Amreli, in Gujarat. The project once fully operational will produce cotton, melange and linen yarns. The idea to set up the plant came with the announcement of the Gujarat Textile Policy and also from the changing dynamics in the Chinese textile industry at that point of time. Subsidised interest costs under the TUFS also proved to be the major impetus along with low labour cost and the power subsidy in Gujarat. Finally, since Gujarat is a major supplier of cotton, we expected a lower logistical cost for sourcing the raw material. The ' &Â&#x2021;{{{{  &X &'&& is completed. A similar number in the second phase is going on and 360,000 spindles in the last phase will be completed by 2018.

As a result, prices of good quality varieties ruled stronger. 3) Strike and non-compliance to GST in major weaving centres like Surat, Ahmedabad, Bhiwandi, Varanasi, Kolkatta, etc has resulted in fall in demand of yarn. The situation was bad since April but it has worsened post GST as the yarn prices have fallen by Rs 15 to 25/kg in many counts. 4) Mills with lower cash reserves/lower cotton stocks/ high yarn unsold stocks/ high interest burden have started facing cash losses. All of the above may compel some of the mills to cut down on production if the current situation does not improve. Prospects for the new season 2017-18 seem good as of now, but the last quarter of season 2016-17 is going to be very challenging for the mills as the physical cotton stocks in India are estimated to be as low as 2 million bales. Reports ICAC: Cotton Prices Uncertain in 2017/18 The Secretariat forecasts that the A Index in 2017/18 will range between 54 cts/lb and 87 cts/lb with a midpoint of 69 cts/lb. The midpoint would be 13 cts/lb lower than in 2016/17. This follows the large increase of 12 cts/lb from 2015/16 to 2016/17, which suggests that such a drop is not unreasonable.

After two seasons of contraction, better expected returns for cotton encouraged farmers to expand cotton area in Pakistan by 9% to 2.7 million hectares. Assuming the average yield rises by 8% to 717 kg/ha, Pakistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production is projected to increase by 17% to 2 million tons, which is similar to its 15 year average. Cotton production in Brazil is forecast to increase by 5% to 1.6 million tons as high returns in 2016/17, resulting partially from a 17% increase in the average yield, are likely to encourage farmers to expand cotton area. World cotton consumption in 2017/18 is forecast to rise by 2% to 25 million tons. A modest 1% increase is projected for China, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest cotton consumer, with its mill use reaching 8.1 million tons in 2017/18. After declining by 3% in 2016/17, consumption in India is forecast to increase by 2% to 5.3 million tons in 2017/18.

In fact, it is the fundamentals factors that determine the price season to season and in between. Fundamentals determine price, period. However, during times of market lapses such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;dead fundamental news,â&#x20AC;? technicals take over and rule the day. Thus, technical indicators become keys on the road map that traders use for that trip. Sometimes a detour may not make logical sense and at other times it may seem prices might be going the wrong way, but technicals spot these diversions and forks in the road. Thus, and my fundamental friends cringe with I say this, technicals are the Leading Indicators of Fundamentals. In my personal tradingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which I no longer doâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;most every time I went against the technicals, I was proven wrong. The market will look for the very low 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in August, but will likely move lower into harvest as U.S. crop does hold the 18.6-19.3 million bales range. A smaller crop would support prices at a higher level . Excerpts from Reinhart report dt 20.7.17: Physical demand is subdued (but not dead) at current levels and it appears as â&#x20AC;&#x201C; short-term â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a level below 66.00 is necessary to bring stronger demand back. At the same time, price targets from various origins do not seem to be near current NYF levels. The result is the relatively quiet

and consolidative market action which we witnessed during the past 4 weeks. Of course such picture cannot prevail for too long and either side will have to adjust their target levels at some point. Excerpts of Plexus Report: Speculators have forced the market lower by selling around 9 million bales net over the last two months and they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up this kind of selling pressure. While most of this spec selling was long liquidation, there have also been new shorts established, which could provide the fuel for short covering rallies. The trade has been a net buyer over the last two months and given the depleted inventories and the uncertainty regarding crops, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see merchants or growers as aggressive sellers at this point. The market is going to trade in a range between 66-72 cents in the foreseeable future.

Magic Choose Vietnam As Their â&#x20AC;&#x153;Focus Countryâ&#x20AC;? This August, over 40 of Vietnamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best manufacturers and resources will be at the forefront of the SOURCING at MAGIC show. Show attendees will have the opportunity  X!&Â&#x201A;ese factories, and chat with representatives. MAGIC chose Vietnam as their â&#x20AC;&#x153;focus countryâ&#x20AC;? because of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rapid growth in export manufacturing. WHY THE FOCUS ON VIETNAM â&#x20AC;˘ Vietnam may be the fastest-growing of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economies, with a potential annual GDP growth rate of about 5.2%. This is partially due to the boom in jobs linked to growth in export manufacturing of textiles and garment products to over 180 countries and territories.


â&#x20AC;˘ Since Vietnam launched itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic renewal campaign to lift the country out of poverty in 1986 and normalised trade relations in the U.S. in 2000, Vietnam has been able to export to a wider range of markets, rapidly expand exports in the manufacturing sector, has become an investment destination because of its large and capable workforce (population of 91 million +), and labor and operating costs remain low compared to China. â&#x20AC;˘ Vietnam is the sourcing destination. In addition, SOURCING at MAGIC will host a Vietnam-focused seminar giving more background and exposure to the countries capabilities and advancements.

SURAT REPORT Polyester Yarn Prices Further Increased Upto 5-10/Kg: Weavers Worried Post GST, in two fortnights, the prices of polyester synthetic yarn have reached at a new height.

More than 35 textile powerloom weaving associations of the city has sent thousands of letters to Prime Minister Narenda Modi and have urged for relief in new tax law. They have put forth demand for refund of accumulated tax credit and removing GST of 5 per cent on weaving jobwork. The yarn attracts 18% GST and any jobwork done on yarn also attracts 5% GST.

Sustainable Environment With Lean Production In Garment Industry Abstract: This paper objective is to present Lean Production (LP) as a work organisational model that fosters a sustainable work environment in garment industry. This is achievable through some lean tools and initiatives, described in the paper, that reduce the energy, water consumption, environmental waste, raw materials consumption and improve leanness and agility. Lean Production has been extensively implemented in all kind of industries, responding to customers demand with on time delivery of high quality products at reduced costs, through continuous waste elimination (e.g. over production, raw materials, energy and water more than necessary). These problems were addressed in this study by the implementation    =     ;' work standardisation, just in time production etc. Lean  !X& (& ;'  ( '&& ( a remarkable contribution in achieving companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals and giving quality products at the right time and at the right place. Introduction In the current era of globalisation, industries are adopting new technologies to produce goods to compete and survive in the market. The most daunting issue faced by manufacturers today is how to deliver their products or materials quickly at low cost and with good quality. Onepromising method for addressing this issue is the application of lean management principles and techniques. Lean management simply known as lean is production practice, which regards the use of resources for any work other than the creation of value for the end customer, is waste and thus a target for elimination. Though there had been numerous claims on the real origin of Lean Manufacturing principles, it was generally accepted that the concept, with this background business needs to compete '&`$] = $ = niches.

4. Challenges In Lean Implementation And Sustainability

Lean Production (LP) is a model of organisation focused on the customer and delivery of on time quality products, materials and information without any wastes, i.e., activities that add no value to the products from the point of view of customer. This designation, Lean Production means â&#x20AC;&#x153;doing more with lessâ&#x20AC;? where less implies less space occupied, less transports, less inventories,   &      resources. LP had its roots in Toyota company that designed, after the Second Great War, a production system, Toyota Production System (TPS, which employed some pillars, like JIT production and automation concepts and some tools to reduce lead times and the cost of products. A book named - â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Machine That Changed the Worldâ&#x20AC;?written by James P. Womack, Daniel T. Jones and Daniel Roos gave the popularity to the Toyota Production System (TPS). Meanwhile, the LP has evolved into a philosophy of thinking, Lean Thinking whose basic principles are 1. Value 2. Value Stream Â&#x2021;)  ;' 4. Pull System

The following important factor of resistance to change in manufacturing sectors is â&#x20AC;˘ Fear to change the legacy system with the new successful trends and methodologies â&#x20AC;˘ Not utilizing the opportunities and advantages of the new policies â&#x20AC;˘ Market destabilisation will lead to force the change, which will be in a non-standard format. Achieving sustainable work environment with Lean production From the previous section, it was obvious that companies could save large amount in reducing wastes, particularly of SME companies. With some exceptions, garment companies are included in this category and presented many problems such as accumulated stocks everywhere due to the wrong product produced, to the anticipated production or to the large lots (overproduction), demotivation of operators and high absenteeism, high level of accidents, operatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specialisation, high energy and water consumption, high raw materials consumption and disposal, high pollution of rivers, soil and air, among others.

According to the research, the apparel (garment) industry uses high volumes of water in raw material production however authors are more concerned in the manufacturing phase. This section mainly divulgate proposals to reduce the water and energy consumption, environmental wastes and raw materials in manufacturing phase. Additionally, proposals to improve leanness and agility are summarized.

Conclusion Finally, this research shows the application of lean principles to the garment industry. According to our familiarity, it is the prime time that lean thinking has successfully implemented in the garment industry. We hope that this paper contains its worth for practitioners in the garment industries. Due to increased customer expectations and severe global competition, the Indian garment industries are trying to increase productivity at lower cost and to produce with best product and service quality. Under these considerations, we have tried to implement lean manufacturing techniques and achieve improvement in process environment, drastic reduction in human fatigue and cost with reasonable investment.
