Petition to legalise Suicide

Powerloom Owners, families and workers asking permission to accept suicide by law. They sent petition to The Prime Minister, Chief Minister, district collectors, Judges, Human Rights Commission, MPS, MLAs. But sadly there was no response.


PowerTex for Rich only

Government announced long waited scheme. But unfortunately it is to kill shuttle powerloom industry. Already most of the Shuttle PowerLooms were closed due to no work. Most fabrics imported from China & Auto Looms also producing Shuttle Powerloom items. Shuttle powerlooms which employs over 5 Million people in danger already. Most in bankruptcy. But still PowerTex scheme is supporting Auto Looms and mass production. By this entire shuttle powerloom industry will loose jobs and only 10% of weavers will have some jobs.


Chinese Dumping Cheap Fabric

China Dumping fabric illegally to India. They make by under invoicing & via Bangladesh also. Chinese Government writes off USD 300 billion of bad debts to destroy other markets. Chinese dumping fabric, crackers, tyres and lot of products to India to destroy our market. If they face any financial loss, Chinese Government is there to support just by write off around USD 300 billion ( 20 Lakh Crore Rupees !)bad debts which is equal to Indian Union Budget 2017-18.


Stop Suicides - Waive off Term Loans

Waive of Term Loans of Weavers at Banks. Tamil Nadu 300 Crores. All over India only 1,500 crores. This will lead them to compete challenges. Many have started suicides in TamilNadu and other states. In Tamil Nadu alone more than thousands of shuttle PowerLoom units in bankruptcy, Thousands in NPA and many in Over due.
