Textile bodies have urged Surat, Gujarat (India) police to revoke the ban imposed on the entry of transport vehicles delivering unfinished polyester fabric. This has hit hard more than 65,000 traders in over 165 textile markets in the region.

Federation of Surat Textile Traders’ Association (FOSTTA) and Vepar Pragati Sangh (VPS) have urged the city police officials to withdraw the ban. Police took the decision to streamline the traffic problems in the area.

President of FOSTTA, Manoj Agarwal told a leading English daily, “Incidents of theft, lower quality fabrics supplied to the mills and the cut by the tempo drivers in the goods have become common from the last 10 days. The traders have started incurring heavy losses as the goods are delivered directly to the mills. Thus, we have requested the police commissioner to allow the tempos in the markets, so that the goods are checked and verified by the traders on the spot.”
