TN weavers' savings scheme will get govt contribution

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa has announced that the state government would contribute to the Tamil Nadu Co-operative Handloom Weavers Savings and Security Scheme, as the Centre has discontinued contributing to the same.

The CM said that beneficiaries of the said scheme contribute eight percent of their wages to the scheme, while the state government would contribute four percent of the wage earned by each weaver.

The contribution would cause the government to bear an additional burden of Rs. 50 million per annum, Ms. Jayalalithaa said, and added that around 76,051 handloom weavers in the state would benefit from the same.

She informed that the Centre discontinued its contribution under the Central Thrift Fund Scheme since 2007, after which the weavers had urged the state government to make up for the loss, and her government has accepted the request.

Prior to withdrawing itself from contributing to the scheme, the Central Government contributed four percent as matching contribution under the scheme.

The sum was deposited in the Government account and the interest earned on the same was used for implementing the family pension scheme, health package scheme and old age pension scheme for handloom weavers.

The state government also announced a rise in the grant provided to the sericulture farmers from Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 37,500 to help them modernise their silk worm rearing and farm equipments to raise productivity.

In all 1,200 farmers would get Rs. 450 million in grant from the state government, which would enable a farmer to raise his earnings to Rs. 100,000 per hectare, the CM said.
