The Chhattisgarh government on Tuesday approved a Gramodyog policy, with an aim to generate seven lakh jobs in village industries and allied sector during 2016-2021.

After a state cabinet meeting, Chief Minister Raman Singh told reporters that efforts would be made to generate employment for weaker sections, women and artisans and craftsmen during the next five years.

About 1.15 lakh people are employed in 35,000 units of khadi and gramodyog sectors and the target is to generate more than two lakh jobs in 50,000 units.

The Cabinet also decided to raise the target for the export of silk textiles to Rs 100 crore from the current figure of Rs 60 crore.

Efforts would also be made to boost kosa, handicraft and clay craft production.

"To improve design, basic quality national-level institutes -NIFT, textile committee, NID, and other institutes will be established. Craftsmen and artisans above the age of 60 will be provided financial assistance. Children of traditional artisans are provided with financial assistance for higher education in crafts design,” the Chief Minister said. (SH)
