Orissa govt provides boost to handloom sector

The Orissa government has created a conducive atmosphere for the growth of the handloom and handicraft sector in the state, by introducing weaver and artisan friendly policies in the last one year.

In August last year, a Community Owned Company (COC) was set up under the public-private partnership model in order to market and sell handloom and handicraft products produced in the state.

COC was set up under an agreement signed between Artisans Micro Finance Pvt Ltd (AMFPL) and the government of Orissa. Apart from marketing, COC will also help in designing, processing, trading and exporting goods from the sector.

Further, the Orissa government also set up 'State Agency for Development of Handloom Clusters' (SADHAC), a registered society. SADHAC will draw funds from the state to help in promoting weavers and craftsmen.

A COC office has already been established and the state has also allocated Rs 20 million to SADHAC, of the Rs 45 million it has committed to be paid over a period of three years.

The handloom and handicraft clusters which have been identified are Ganjam, Nuapatana, Balangi, Sambalpur, Kendrapara, Baripada, Duburi, Gopalpur, Kotpad, Bargarh, Berhampur, Raghurajpur, Jhilminda and Makhida.

These clusters are famous for tusar, ikat, paper mache and cotton fabrics. AMFPL has also in the last three months procured handloom textiles amounting to Rs 2.5 million.
