    period of six months immediately preceding the date of the order;

It is necessary to specify the maximum quantity of raw jute which you may, as a manufacturer of jute textiles, have in your own possession ;

Your eight weeks’ consumption requirement will be duly intimated and you can commence buying as laid down in the succeeding paragraph.

Now, therefore, in exercise of the powers vested in me under clause 5 of the Jute and Jute Textiles Control (Amendment) Order, 2002 (hereinafter referred to as the said Order);

I, S.Majumdar, Jute Commissioner, hereby direct that :-

b) In case, you have stocks of raw jute in your mill and up-country godowns including stocks in pipeline below your eight weeks’ consumption requirement, you may buy only such quantity of raw jute to ensure that total stocks in your own possession do not exceed your eight weeks’ consumption as specified above.

This Order shall come into force with immediate effect and remain valid till further orders subject to reservation of right to modify the same at any time during this period as merited on a review of the situation.

This Order shall not be applicable to delivery of raw jute by Jute Corporation of India and to stocks of imported jute provided the office is immediately informed and the imported stocks in baled form are available for verification by the personnel of this office..
