“The Kerala government is planning to modernise the khadi sector with an aim to generate employment, in villages and also boost the state's khadi industry,” according to media reports.

“Kerala will introduce schemes to partially mechanise the industry and thereby increase the wages of workers and artisans employed in the sector,” media reports quoted a government official as saying.

Kerala Khadi and Village Industries Board financial advisor Muhammed Haris said the introduction of the modern charka, has already helped better working conditions of the khadi industry workers.

More efforts are now expected to increase production and sales of khadi apparel which will result in enhanced skilled employment in the industry.

There are an estimated 12,800 workers involved in spinning and weaving of khadi in Kerala and the government has set a sales target of Rs 154 crore during fiscal 2017. (AR)
