State to revive handicraft industry

Feb '08
Orissa, known for its unique wooden artifacts and silver and brass filigree, along with carpets, zari and appliqué work, is now losing its popularity as artisans are getting discouraged owing to lack of available resources. Recently, Mr Naveen Patnaik, Chief Minister, announced an aid of Rs40 crore recently, to revive the drowning industry.

The amount will be used to provide formal trainings to the craftsmen. It will be further utilized for promotion of these beautiful handicrafts, infrastructural development and now loans can be provided to the artisans for the enhancement of their small scale businesses. Monetary support would also be granted to the self help groups (SHGs) for setting up their own marketing centres.

The Government intends to train nearly 2000 craftsmen per year and for that three training centers are being planned in Balasore, Rayagada and Sambalpur.

Now, the Government has understood the importance of innovations, stress will be given on that. Some of the craftsmen will be sent to other states to learn about different crafts.

From now on, no compromise on quality will be taken for granted as it's a top priority of the State. The Government emphasized on sufficient supply of raw materials and setting up of handicraft centers.

A handicraft centre will be set up at Kenduli in Khurda district, a laboratory for metal-related crafts with an international marketing centre and a modern packaging centre will also be set up in Bhubaneswar. Renovation of The Utkalika sales centre will be done.
