Urgent Appeal for Support to the Textile Industry in Andhra Pradesh

The AP Textile Mills Association (APTMA) is deeply concerned about the critical situation facing the textile industry in Andhra Pradesh. A range of challenges, including escalating cotton prices, dwindling yarn prices, surging power charges, and the post-COVID market imbalance, have severely impacted the industry’s financial viability and operational stability. In addition, the non-release of sanctioned subsidies, the imposition of power cuts during peak hours, and the recent imposition of electricity duty charges, true-up charges, and FPCCI charges have further exacerbated the industry’s woes.
