Tamil Nadu MSMEs To Escalate Agitation Against Fixed Electricity Charges

Coimbatore, Feb 23 (KNN) The Tamil Nadu Industrial Electricity Consumers Association is gearing up to address the pressing concerns of Micro, Small, and Medium-scale Enterprises (MSMEs) in an upcoming meeting slated to be held in Coimbatore next month.

Highlighting the unaddressed demands of MSMEs from both Central and State governments, the association aims to shed light on the challenges faced by the sector, reported Hindu.

Following a recent gathering in Tiruchi, representatives of the association underscored the urgent need for government intervention to alleviate the hardships faced by MSMEs across Tamil Nadu.

With nearly 400 MSME associations expected to participate, the event seeks to amplify the collective voice of the sector.

Central to the grievances is the State government's reluctance to heed calls for a reduction in fixed charges, coupled with a perceived lack of dialogue with MSMEs.

Moreover, the association decried the Central government's inaction regarding the textile industry's woes, particularly affecting Tamil Nadu.

The unchecked influx of cheap garment imports poses a significant threat to domestic manufacturers, they alleged.

Emphasising the dire situation confronting MSMEs, association members intend to spotlight the failure of both Central and State authorities to address their concerns adequately.

Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Coimbatore this month, the association plans to present their demands to Coimbatore South MLA Vanathi Srinivasan, seeking urgent attention and action from the government.

Through this initiative, the Tamil Nadu MSME community aims to garner support and ensure that their grievances are not overlooked, advocating for policy reforms and interventions essential for the sustenance and growth of the sector.
