Involve artisans in framing of new handicraft policy - Experts
Apr '09
Jammu and Kashmir is framing a policy for state's handicrafts industry. The artisans in this industry believe that their problems would remain out of the frame as they haven't got the chance of representation.

The state government though is taking effective steps for the benefit of the handicrafts industry and negotiations regarding this are going on between the officials and the exporters of the industry.

But, the key stakeholders, like artisans and workers in the handicrafts industry have not been involved in framing handicraft policy by the drafting committee, which has disappointed them.

The state government did not entertain participation of key stakeholders in the drafting committee of handicrafts policy, saying that these stakeholders belong to the unorganized sector of the carpet industry.

People of the lower section of the carpet industry are mentioning this as government's injustice towards them, since; they are the major sufferers of the industry during the period of recession.

According to them, steps for providing industry status to handicrafts sector is really appreciating but participation of only exporters in policy framing is putting a question mark on its credibility towards key stakeholders.

Due to this type of injustice towards the handicraft industry workers, they say, they are no more in the position to continue with the profession, which will result in destruction of this sector and strongly believe that this policy would not prove to be a weaver friendly policy.
