Industrial estates for smaller units sought

The Coimbatore Tirupur District Micro and Cottage Entrepreneurs’ Association has appealed to the Coimbatore Corporation to relax the punitive action taken on micro and cottage industries based on complaints from residents of a locality against the units.Association president S. Ravikumar has said in a release that recently the Corporation asked a few units to shift operations from a residential area as there were complaints against the establishments.

The Corporation should give time to the units move out as the Government had announced the establishment of industrial estates for micro and cottage enterprises.Most of these complaints were regarding noise pollution.

Machines

A large number of micro and cottage industries here had just one or two machines and were functioning in residential areas. The workers of these units were also residing in nearby areas.Representatives of the association had met the Deputy Chief Minister and Rural Industries Minister and appealed to them to expedite the process of setting up industrial estates for the smaller units.

In the wake of complaints, the officials should form a team with industrial representatives too and study the complaint before initiating action on the units, said M. Loganathan, secretary of the association.
