Punjab apparel makers divert to PPE manufacturing

Punjab apparel industry leaders are set to fulfill the shortage of PPE kits in the country by diverting their production to manufacturing the much needed protective gear worn by health and sanitation professionals to minimize exposure to the deadly infection.

Around 58 PPE suit manufacturers in Punjab, 54 of which are based in Ludhiana, have obtained certification from South India Textiles Research Association (SITRA) or Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) for the manufacturing of these kits.

These 58 manufacturers already have orders for lakhs of PPE kits and their existing capacity is more than the requirement in India. Hence, the Punjab industries minister Sunder Sham Arora has urged Union minister of commerce and industry Piyush Goyal to allow the exports of these kits to other countries.
