Dear Members

Further to the Chairman’s Message on 4th November 2019 urging all our member exporters to adopt and share best practices in the areas of Cleanliness, Sanitation & Water Management, Environment Friendly and Conservation methods and techniques including waste water and effluent treatment in our business surroundings, as part of the ‘Swachhta Pakwada’ and the various schemes for ‘Swachh Bharat’ initiated by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modiji, M/s Pal Fashions Pvt. Ltd, one of our oldest and most esteemed members headquartered in Mumbai with factory in Tarapur have shared their best practice which is not only a Corporate Social Responsibility, but has been a lifelong passion of Shri Charanjit Singh Ahuja, Managing Director.

We request our members to share such practices being employed by them which we will highlight to all our members by mail as well as through our website and monthly newsletter ‘INFO SRTEPC’

Attached are the details of ‘Tarapur First’ an initiative by Pal Fashions Pvt. Ltd. in association with Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC), Tarapur Industrial Manufacturers Association (TIMA) and Tarapur Environment Protection Society (TEPS) to plant 100000 trees by end of 2019, thereby creating 100000 lungs in this Industrial Belt. The Foundation has already planted more than 64000 trees by deploying the Dr. Akira Miyawaki method of Forestation, a unique concept of natural vegetation, a method of forestation that enables the forest to survive on its own after 3 years.

Given below is the link to the pdf document on the noble mission. My team at SRTEPC and me had the good fortune of planting trees in this area a few months ago during a Seminar organized in Tarapur thereby contributing our little bit to the environment. Shri Charan Ahuja has unilaterally extended the services of his team to all the members of SRTEPC if they wish to adopt a similar forestation drive in their factory premises. He can be reached on charanahuja@gmail.com

Once again it is our sincere and humble request to all our members to adopt these practices and share the same for the benefit of the Indian Man-made Fibre Textile Industry.

Warm Regards


S. Balaraju
Executive Director
