Tirupur region is one of the country’s fast growing textile and garment industrial hub. 56% of India’s total knitwear for export is produced by Tirupur region. There are some 7,000 registered and several unregistered garment units exists in the town, which provides employment opportunity to close to a million people both directly and indirectly. Sizeable section among workers is internal migrants from different districts of Tamil nadu and other Indian states we well. Besides adult workers, there are children below 18 years both boys and girls employed in the supply chain of the garment industry. The age group and face of internal migrant workers are becoming younger and younger over the past few years. This is the alarming trend found in this region.

The industry is driving hard to employ younger generation by aggressively pursuing Hostel schemes for young girls and women and camp labour schemes (Sumangali/Mankalya/Thirumagal schemes). The rate of recruitment of young women in camp labour schemes has increased in the past one year than the previous years. Women workers continue to face excessive working hours, low wages, restriction on mobility and freedom, verbal and physical abuses, poor quality of food and water, insufficient health care and absence of better health and safety in working environment etc. After a decline in recruitment of children in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, the trend is now changing with employment of more number of children in supply chain factories.

The problem of child labour found among migrant workers’ community is not only linked with poverty but also it has established connection with educational infrastructure facilities. Slums and other residential areas of workers are in the state of poor hygienic and improper sanitary conditions.

Tirupur People’s Forum for Protection of Environment and Labour rights (TPF) emerged as a response to the growing labour rights violation specially the exploitation of the migration workers, women workers and the child labour in the Tirupur garment and textile industries and in response to the continued eroding of the environment due to the industrial and other pollutants of Tirupur. The forum was formed in 2006 and is constituted with the consensus of the organizations that are involved in promotion and protection of workers’ rights, child rights and protection of environment rights in Tirupur as well as from the sourcing areas / districts.
