Bangladesh garment, dyeing industryIn a distressing turn of events, Wisdom Attires, a prominent apparel manufacturing group in Fatullah, Narayanganj, with a daily dyeing capacity of 25 tonnes, finds itself at the epicentre of a gas crisis. The factories under the group, which were consuming nearly Tk 3 lakh worth of gas daily, have been grappling with near-zero gas pressure since October 15, forcing the group of companies to resort to burning LPG, CNG, and diesel to operate generators. This unprecedented challenge has led to a drastic reduction in production, plummeting from its usual 25-tonne output to a mere 10-12 tonnes per day. Astonishingly, despite this 50 per cent decrease in production, Wisdom Attires now incurs an additional cost of Tk 7 lakh for LPG, CNG, and diesel.
