As the first instalment of the North East Region Textiles Promotion Scheme (NERTPS), Manipur Commerce and Industries minister Govindas Konthoujam recently distributed Rs 2.6 lakh each to 11 handloom clusters comprising 110 self help groups (SHG) in the state's Bishnupur district.

The programme was jointly organised by the district handlooms, textiles Bishnupur and handloom clusters of Bishnupur district under NERTPS, sponsored by theUnion Ministry of Textiles.

Konthoujam said such useful schemes should be properly utilized by the weavers and they should work with sincerity and dedication.

To receive the second instalment of the scheme, weavers must show sheer interest and provide their best efforts to bring out the best quality products and take part in the upcoming training sessions so that the Textiles Ministry releases the remaining amount to the weavers.

He asserted that unlike other schemes the present schemes will be strictly monitored by the Ministry by introducing a system called Geographical Information System (GIS). With the introduction of the GIS, the Ministry will monitor all the activities of the weavers ranging from training, weaving etc online, he said.

Deputy director of Commerce and Industries K Lamlee Kamei who also attend the ceremony said the broad objective of the NERTPS is to develop and modernize the textile sector in the North East Region by providing the needed government support in terms of raw material, seed banks, machinery, common facility centers, skill development, design and marketing support etc. (SH)
