The newly-formed Ved Road Art Silk Small Scale Co-operative Federation has taken an initiative to offer insurance cover with accidental death benefit to the power-loom workers of Surat.

The Ved Road industrial zone has around 50,000 power-loom machines and it employs over 25,000 textile weavers, who are mostly from the states of Orissa, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Maharashtra.

The industry is now turning into a co-operative; the federation has registered around 1,200 members, while the membership drive is to cover some 4,000 members in the Ved Road zone.

Different programs and seminars, to discuss various topics related to latest technologies and new varieties in the market and research work for the benefit of fabric manufacturers would be undertaken by the federation.

The power-loom unit owners will also receive information pertaining to product marketing. Also, the members will be updated about various policies and schemes framed by the Textile Ministry.

As per the President of Federation Mr. Devesh Patel, the federation will buy large quantity yarn from big companies and will sell it to the members. Besides, it will also provide identity cards, to the labourers, carrying their name and address along with company's name and address and phone numbers.

In addition to all this, operators will also avail the benefit of insurance cover offered by the Textile Ministry, Jantri Bima Yojna and the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC). The Ministry will extend the insurance cover of up to Rs 150,000 at a premium of Rs 80 per annum and the SMC will provide insurance of Rs 10,000 at a premium of Rs 12 per annum.

Moreover, textile operators' children studying in VIII, IX and X standards will also receive subsidy of Rs 1,200 in their school fees, Mr. Patel added further.
