Creating Niche In Innerwear Segment-Palash Overseas

PS: From underwear to garment to underwear again, how did this shift happen?

SB: We started our men’s underwear brand “Lips” in the initial days of business, which got great attention; however, we started facing problems in delivering quality and quantity on time and prolonged disruption in distribution resulted in a mechanism failure and we decided to wrap up the business in 1998. After a few years we revived the business, but this time we thought of trying our hands on garment like jeans and shirts. On 25th November, 2005 we entered the Dubai market with kids’ pants, jeans, baba suit and gradually things worked out. Today we are into catering to the overseas market with both underwear and garments.

PS: Which countries do you cater to?

SB: Our presence is majorly in Dubai, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, Panama and a few more Gulf countries.

PS: Apart from underwear, do you have any plans to export other products too?

SB: We are into exports of hosiery fabric and related accessories to leading brands in the international market. Due to our policy of good quality at reasonable prices, we are one of the leading exporters of men’s underwear from India. Our sales increased year after year and now my son Ankit has also joined the company. We are working hard to take our company to great heights in the international market. We are adding more items in inner wear and increasing our customer base.

PS: Which technology are you using for efficient production?

Indian Manmade Fibre (MMF) Industry In Jeopardy: Increased Imports And Esclated Cost Affects Industry

Working out tax rates for different goods and services was a huge challenge for India’s Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council. Although the GST has taken under consideration a significant part of the industry - cotton and natural fibers, distortion has been introduced in the GST system, through the ‘inverted’ duty structure on man-made fibers. Man-made fiber and synthetic yarn attract an 18% GST rate as compared to 12% excise duty, while the fabric produced from these fibers is taxed at 5%. This creates a situation where the input is taxed at a much higher rate than the final product.

Velvet Traditional Yet Influential In Fashion

On the other hand, a few people have differing opinions about velvet. “New government policies have affected the business a lot, demonetisation had already caused a huge loss and GST has simply added to those wounds. 12% GST rate solely on velvet whereas GST on other fabrics is only 5%, has closed doors for export for many like us” said one of the officials from Kedarnath Velvet. He also said that even though Velvet is trending worldwide, exports are suffering due to taxation schemes in India. Also, China is hugely competitive.
