New Delhi, 25 Jan (KNN) Ministry of Commerce and Industry has extended the last date for submitting views/ comments/suggestions on the proposed Rubber (Promotion and Development) Bill 2022, up to 09 February 2022.

A copy of the draft bill is available for review on the website of India’s Department of Commerce (https://commerce.gov.in) and also on the Rubber Board website (http://rubberboard.gov.in), for comments from industry stakeholders and the public at large.

The Department of Commerce and Industry has proposed to repeal the existing Rubber Act of 1947in order to incorporate the widespread changes in the constitutional, industrial and economic scenario of the country with reference to development in rubber and allied sectors.

Therefore, it has become imperative to remove archaic provisions, create an environment conducive for easy conduct of business, reorient functions of the board with equal focus on upstream and downstream sectors, and to contribute towards making a world-class rubber industry. 

The Rubber Act 1947 was enacted on 18th April 1947 to provide for the development of the rubber industry under the Control of the Union. The Act was amended in 1954, 1960, 1982, 1994, and 2010.

Those who are desirous of submitting views/ comments/ suggestions may send the same to the Secretary, Rubber Board, Sub Jail Road, Kottayam - 686002, Kerala (email: secretary@rubberboard.org.in) on or before 09 February 2022.
