Sub.: Request for list of polyester yarn not available domestically – reg.

Dear Sirs/Madam,

This has reference to the request of the textile industry for exemption of certain categories of specialized polyester yarns which are not manufactured in India and are import dependent (in terms of quality or quantity), from the scope of the recently announced QCOs. Secretary (Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals) has sought a list of such products for review of the matter. We are sharing a tentative list of such categories which CITI has compiled on the basis of representations received from various associations.

We seek your feedback on any further amendment in the list, if needed, along with proper justification of the same.

Please share your inputs latest by 22nd April 2024, 2 PM so that the same can be incorporated and shared with Ministry for the necessary action.

Placed for your information and necessary action.

Thanking you,

With Best regards,


Chandrima Chatterjee

Secretary General
