Khadi workers likely to get hike in wages

Dec '08
In order to improve the condition of the Khadi workers, Government is planning to hike their wages by 50 percent. According to Mr Elamaram Karim, Minister for Industries and Commerce, currently, a khadi worker gets Rs70 per day, which is insufficient at this point of time.

Now, as soon as Khadi Commission gives approval of this proposal, it will be implemented. The State Government is also planning to provide some more incentives other than this.

There is a huge demand for khadi material in Kerala, however, it cannot be fulfilled due to poor wages and paucity of workers. Therefore, khadi clothings made in other states are sold here. Experts opine this increase in wage might help to improve the situation.

The Minister also informed that a new showroom of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) is expected to come up very soon in Kozhikode. The Government is looking for a suitable site for the showroom.
