Chittagong: In general it is useful to use a leather for three hands. Initially, small traders gathered leather in the field. Then sell it to the unprocessed leather retailers.
The purchase of leather from small traders and the process of preserving the skin began with the unoccupied skin carers. Then it was delivered to tanners in Dhaka. They are useful in the use of the skin after the procedure.
This year, the fixed price of the government was lower than last year, before the offer, small businessmen, craftsmen and tanners – three parties worried about their business. After complaining about complicated skin business in the face of a lot of profits, after seeing the face of profit.
On the second day of Eid al-Azhar, however, there is a little complicated calculation of leather cases. Seasonal small traders who collect leather from the field phase, by cutting the syndicate through the syndicate, the skin prices are high and ultimately the profit is not seen in the income of the unprocessed leather retailers of Chittagong.
It is known that the Dhaka government has set a price of 35 to 45 rupees per square foot of skin. Usually the skin of a cow is 15 to 20 square feet. The price of leather is as low as 600 to 800 taka. That means that tanners from Dhaka will buy leather for this price.
The raw leather workers of Chittagong said that if you want to see the profit, tanners will buy the price where the prices are usually bought for a price of 200-300 taka. But it was not possible because of the syndicates of the politically and locally influential seasonal small leather traders.
Owners of tanneries are forced to buy their skin from the small traders at the price they sell.
The raw resident Ali Reza told banglanews: "There are six lakh animals sacrificed in Chittagong." She would collect the skin as she is. But on the day of the sacrifice the skin did not come to us on Wednesday (August 22). As a result, we had to buy our skin at a higher price.
He said that it takes about 1 to 3 months to process the skin we have bought. If you want to see the profit, including the cost of saving, the salary of the employee, the skin that is bought at Tk 500 to 900 is sold at Tk 800 to Tk 1.200. But the tannery owners do not give 1 Taka out of the fixed price of the government, but rather give less.
In response to a question, he said that the skin I sold last year has not yet received the full price. If they do not sell the skin this year, they will keep the money. But they must sell the skin even if they have suffered damage.
Atadder Zahir Mia told banglanews that he had learned this company from time to time. What to do if you give up Those who are able to leave the other profession. It has been about 300 at a time, but it has now dropped to 120. Tanneries are all closed.
Zaheer Mia said with tears: "The decision of the government can save us, save us. If tanneries are offered to take a little more of leather, then the leather company will turn around again.
Responding to a question, he said that the government has given various benefits to tanners. They also provided loans for them. Even then they kept our remaining money for the whole year. What will we do so much money on our right?
Abdul Kader, president of Chittagong Raw Leather Traders Co-operative Society Limited, told banglanews: "We are concerned about the price of leather collection, but I am concerned about the price." If the tannery owners are unable to cover the extra costs of learn to sell, then there is no way other than to keep the hands of learning businessmen upside down.
He was looking for government intervention in this respect.
