Thus, Handloom is the most important and fast growing cottage industry in the state, the DIPR said.
The primary objective of Handlooms & Textiles Section under the Department of Commerce & Industries, Govt. of Manipur is to promote the socio-economic conditions of the handloom weavers and to work for the harmonious growth of this sector.
The Department has implemented various promotional, development and welfare schemes for the better earning and wellbeing of weavers of Manipur. Over a period of Three Five Years Plan, (2002-07, 2007-2012 and 2012-17), the Handloom sector has tremendously improved in all fronts.
The thrust has been on margin money which is a form of financial assistance provided to weavers to avail credit facilities from FI/Banks, skill upgradation, common facility centre (CFC), loom, jacquard, dobby and accessories, construction of workshed, opening of yarn depots, providing employment to unemployed diploma and degree holders and recapitalization of handloom societies, it said.
