San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2013 -- The Mahakumbh have begun, and due to the celebration, district administrations as well as state government have begun to focus concerted effort for industry like leather tanning. There are several tanneries in the Jajmau region altogether that have stopped the treatment process of raw leather in their units, while other tanneries have suspended their process as of last week.
According to the Small tanners Association, the processing of the raw leather takes as many as 12 days’ time. Hafeezur Rehman, who is president of the small Tanners Association stated that tanneries would likely remain closed during Kumbh, or continue to work their auxiliary processing in the meantime.
Rehman stated that the tanneries suspending their workflow of raw leather for the six week period, due to the Kumbh hair at Allahabad, and thus a large number of workers will be affected. There are nearly 15,000 temp workers that would be put into employment during this period, the president stated. Those tanneries that have already planned to shift their workers into the dry leather work were forced to close their united, according to Rehman. He added that the large tanneries were the only facilities that had dry work, and smaller facilities lacked such auxiliary work, and thus are forced to close.
At the same time, some export units have noted that the fulfillment of orders is a necessity, and thus they would have their orders processed via Chennai. Proprietor of the East West tanners in Ehsanullah stated: “We had closed the process work in our tanneries and permanent staff has been shifted to dry work sections. Remaining have been asked to take rest till the tannery resumes normal operations.”
Also closing for the six weeks was the Oriental leather finishers. As a result, the state government asked that tanneries and similar industries across the bank of the river Ganges must check discharge of waste into river to promote higher quality of water.
