This was revealed by the Union Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Shri Mahabir Prasad. He said, a growing need was being felt to facilitate and empower khadi spinners and weavers to chart out a sustainable path for growth, income generation and better work environment so that they are able to have a right working atmosphere and better ambiance to enable them to carry out their spinning and weaving work efficiently.
