With 39 handloom clusters, Manipur has become the biggest handloom clusters hub in the North eastern region, surpassing all the other States in the region.

This was stated by O Nabakishwore Singh, Principal Secretary in the Manipur State's Department of Commerce and Industry, while speaking on the occasion of 12th Handloom day.

Mr. Singh highlighted the socio-economic importance of the handloom weavers, craftsmen, etc in preparation of handloom products and stressed on the requirement of maintaining quality as well as quantity of the handloom items to fulfil needs of potential customers.

While speaking about protection and expansion of handloom sector in the State, he said that the government has designed several schemes and projects for the purpose. He particularly cited the scheme of building 1860 work sheds for handloom craftsmen.

He disclosed that the government has consulted the concerned department of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) in this regard.

Mr. Singh further stated that the State government has got in touch with the concerned Ministry of the Central Government to propose inclusion of a provision for development of the State's handloom industry in the 12th Five Year plan which would begin next year.

Further, while calling the attention of the concerned government department, he stressed on the need to develop and revitalize sericulture industry in the State.

Chingtam Luwang of Handloom Promotion Council said that since its foundation in 2000, the Council has been urging the government to devise a Handloom Policy of the State and to set up a separate handloom department within the government.
