Shipping of cotton by foreign carriers within the Indian shorelines from Gujarat to the Southern port lines are facing major constraints due to the existing Cabotage laws, which the Southern India Mills’ Association is seeking to be relaxed.SIMA advocates that the government relax the cabotage laws for the movement of cotton from Gujarat to Tamil Nadu by the sea route. To bring down cost of transporting cotton, this demand from SIMA has been long pending with the government.
