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.
