The Morbi Ceramic Association had made the decision to temporarily close down plants in order to ensure the safety of the laborers
In light of the Biparjoy cyclone, a crucial meeting was held by the Morbi Ceramic Manufacture Association. During the meeting, it was unanimously agreed upon that all industrialists must suspend operations at their respective plants for a period of 3 to 4 days to ensure the well-being of the workers. Additionally, as a precautionary measure to prevent accidents on the road during the storm, the ceramic industry had also decided to halt loading and unloading activities, considering that approximately 8000 vehicles travel daily on the national highway in the industrial area of Morbi.
In the event of any workers or pedestrians getting trapped or if any trees fall on the road during the storm, a machinery loader or JCB will be readily available. The Morbi Ceramic Association had also announced three emergency contact numbers. Furthermore, due to the anticipated heavy rain accompanying the storm, the Morbi Ceramic Association had prepared food packets in case the residents of Morbi district require assistance.
