2 OVERVIEW of DOMESTIC PRODUCTION & IMPORT - WEAVING Import of secondhand shuttleless looms started in a big way after the liberalization of trade and industrial policy of the Government. Since year 2000, only 1,50,000 shuttleless looms installed till date. It took more than 20 years for textile industry to do so. Whereas China has installed 7,50,000 shuttleless looms within the last 10 years. The revised policy of the Government has reduced the import of secondhand shuttleless looms in the country Imposition of higher duty for secondhand machines Reduction of subsidy under TUFS-30% CLCS for the second hand machines Off late import of secondhand shuttleless looms have dropped to 22% during from the level of 82% during Indian manufacturers successfully developed and installed low-cost basic technology shuttleless rapier looms in the country.

8 IMPORT – MATTER OF CONCERN Dual Subsidy on Imported Looms - Firstly, an export subsidy by the Chinese Government and Secondly TUFS offered by the Indian Government No benchmarking applicable to imported machines Second hand imported machines are often accompanied by unscrupulous trade practices (over invoicing, non-existent or insufficient after-sales services and recycling of used parts and components, sometimes, even entire machines). Of late lot of Second hand machines are refurbished and imported in the disguise of new looms.
9 TEI – PROPOSAL FOR POLICY INTERVENTIOAN No incentive for import of secondhand machinery in the form of Subsidies under TUFS or concessional import duty against export commitments Introduce import duty on second hand machines similar to Automobiles sector Only secondhand machines of 5 years’ vintage may be allowed for another period of 3 years Only the old shuttleless rapier looms which are capable of working at a minimum speed of 400 rpm should be allowed. Benchmarking should be introduced for imported machines as well.
