Jharkhand, has been the top producer of tussar in the country last year, with a production of 150 metric tons. The Government is now planning to double its production capacity this year by opening up 50 new spinning and reeling centers to generate employment in the region.

The construction work for 29 spinning and reeling centres has already started in Seraikela-Kharswan district, while remaining units will come up in Western and Eastern district of Singhbhum. It is estimated that, an investment of Rs6 crore is reqiuired for this project and near about Rs12 lakh will be expended for setting up each centre.

The Government will provide professional training to the Self Help Groups (SHGs) for three months regarding reeling and spinning of thread from tussar cocoons. This will be beneficial for the workers in order to understand the minute details related to this field.

There will be nearly 100 SHGs working in these centers, offering employment to around 2,000 women. The authorities would also provide all the necessary facilities to the SHGs like work area, machines, capital and supply of silk cocoons at reasonable rates.

The Government has already collaborated with Jharkhand Silk, Textile & Handicraft Development Corp (JSTHDC), to purchase silk thread that will be produced by SHGs in these centers.

According to experts, each centre will have the capacity to produce nearly 100 kilograms of silk thread per month.
