A proposal to set up a handicrafts museum at Neuginagar Crafts Complex received an approval of the Board of Directors of Goa Handicrafts Rural Small Scale Industries Development Corporation (GHRSSIDC).

The office of Development Commissioner (Handicraft), government of India will provide the financial assistance of Rs. 50 lakhs to set up the complex, which is likely to complete in the early months of next year.

A press release informed that a number of exquisite Indian handicrafts and handlooms being manufactured by artisans around the country will be displayed in the proposed museum, where complete information regarding those items will also be provided.

The museum will be equipped with all the up-to-the-minute facilities like touch-screen kiosks, audio-visual tools along with live demonstrations.

The boards of directors of GHRSSIDC also agreed to establish Shilpgram or Goa Haat at Neuginagar, Panji on a public-private-partnership model. This set up will serve glimpses of cultural facets of the state to the visitors.

Shilpgram will encompass the facilities like a stage for daily cultural programs, 40 handicraft stalls for artisans, which will be allotted on rotational basis, a food court, a cafeteria, a convention hall, demonstration rooms, etc.

Local artisans will get the biggest benefit from this project as they will be able to display and sell their products to the foreign and domestic tourists through this haat. The project is intended to be implemented on build, own, operate, transfer basis (BOOT).

A state level monitoring committee will be set up to finalize the modalities and list of permissible activities that could be taken up within Shilpgram. Time-to-time framework of various guidelines will also be done by the committee. It will also monitor implementation of those guidelines.

GHRSSIDC intends to increase its turnover to about Rs. 12 crore per year through this project (WHICH PROJECT), which is expected to help small and medium units such as steel rolling mills, bakeries etc in Goa.

Items brought by the visiting tourists from Aparant emporia will also be delivered anywhere in the world as the board has approved a tie-up with a courier company called DHL Couriers. This is expected to boost the sale of handicraft items.

The board is also planning for two other large emporia, one in North Goa and other in South Goa. Financial assistance of Rs. 25 lakh per emporium from the office of DC(H) has also been approved.
