Tanners face acute fund crisis

Tanners are worried about the processing and preservation of rawhides amid an acute funds crisis, though they have set a target to procure about 70 lakh pieces of rawhides during Eid-ul-Azha this year. According to sources, exportprospects of the tannery sector are currently bleak due to volatile international market conditions. Hide exports were 21 per cent less till June 2018 than the same period in the previous year.
