The Centre has approved seven new mini-handloom clusters in Orissa, due to which the total number of mini-clusters in the state has reached from 16 to 23. These clusters are located in Padmapur, Bhatli, Bhuden (Baragarh), Athamallik, Kendarapara, Narasinghpur and Gopalpur (Jajpur).

A top cooperative body of weavers, 'Boyanka', will look after the implementation of these mini-handloom clusters and a cluster development executive will be appointed for this by the state government. About Rs. 60 lakh will be spent for each one of these mini-handloom clusters.

Meanwhile, the State Agency for Development of Handloom Cluster (SADHAC) will take up a study and survey of the clusters. The SADHAC is an autonomous body that has been constituted for preservation and promotion of handloom heritage by the textiles and handloom department.

SADHAC will also create a data base on handlooms, make weavers to adopt and develop new designs and will also transfer local technology from one location to another. During new technology introduction, the agency that started its functioning from this January, will also take up research and development activities.

The body will also assist in the formulation of the textile policy of the state and will do market survey as well, to create linkage for domestic and export market.

Buyers-Sellers meet will be organized to get feed backs on product and market trends and various workshops will be held to disseminate information regarding handloom industry. The state government is also thinking to give the task of implementing various self employment programs to the agency.

The agency may be declared as an implementing agency for Directorate of textiles and handloom is also expected to monitor, supervise and evaluate the various training programs.
