Polyester hub in Surat yet to bounce back a year after note ban

 India’s polyester capital, Surat, is yet to bounce back a year after demonetisation, which led to more than five lakh job losses and an estimated 40% plunge in production. Most of the shops in the textile markets on the Surat Ring Road, which usually gear up for post-Diwali business rush for the forthcoming wedding season, remain closed.

There is no demand from any quarters – textiles have been almost erased from the consumers’ priority list, thanks to demonetisation and then GST (goods and services tax),” said Champalal Bothra, general secretary of Federation of Surat Textile Traders Association. The entire polyester value chain from yarn to the garment is under pressure. The withdrawal of high-value banknotes put sudden brakes on the disposable income of consumers, with grave consequences.
Till a year ago Surat produced 40 million metres of synthetic fabric daily. More than 1.5 million workers were involved in the process of manufacturing yarns, grey fabric, dyeing, embroidery, packaging and allied services.

Surat boasts 700,000 looms that make the grey fabric, bought by 65,000 traders spread across textile markets such as Radhakrishna Textile Market, New Textile Market, Surat Textile Market and several others on Surat Ring Road.

The grey fabric would go to the 400 dyeing processing houses and get routed to embroidery units for embellishments for the final garment. Surat ushered in polyester revolution in the country through sheer volume game, offering sarees and dress material at Rs 125.

Now, the city presents a sorry picture. The migrant workforce was sent packing to their respective states — Odisha, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Bihar — and those who are still here, crave for work. Almost 400,000 women who would earn Rs 300-800 per day by working from homes —sewing, stitching or pasting diamonds and other embellishments on fabric — have no work.
