The government of Orissa has decided to provide free handloom saris to 40,000 Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA) of the state to support the weavers as well as to create a stable and permanent market for handloom saris.

Chief Minister, Mr. Naveen Patnaik said this, in a meeting, after reviewing implementation of the special package that the Government had announced in August 2007 for the weavers.

Photo I-Cards have been issued to about 79,763 weavers against targeted 1.07 lakh weavers, informed Textiles and Handlooms Secretary, Ms. Arati Ahuja in the meeting.

Above 28,000 weavers have been identified for issuing I-cards, in the second phase, and more than 20,000 have been photographed.

Under the cluster development program, a common facility centre has been developed at Nuapatna and provisions to market the products in Mumbai and Bangalore have also been made.

In addition to this, a marketing tie-up has been made with FabIndia, which has outlets in major metro cities, informed the CM.

About 1,000 weavers were trained in the year 2007-08 under capacity building program and more 300 were trained under Employment mission. All the identified weavers are trained in phases.

In the year 2007-08, about 371 work-sheds were developed under cluster development program, while another 870 sheds were developed in 2008-09, out of which about 447 work-sheds have been developed and the rest are in various stages of development. The target for this fiscal is to build 1,600 sheds.
