Govt of Orissa to set up more raw material banks

Feb '10
The Government of Orissa will increase the number of raw material banks in Orissa, which has 26 banks at present. It will also release national-level tenders within two months in order to receive quality materials and accessories to develop the textile sector.

Power-loom products can never stand at par with traditionally woven fabrics, in terms of quality and efficiency, as it cannot be dyed with natural dyes, but still the artisans of unorganized sector are facing problems. A substantial platform is required to be formed to provide them their share, said Mr. Laxmi Narayan Nayak, Textiles and Handlooms Director.

Speaking at a roundtable on “Inclusive development through fair trade approaches: Opportunities and challenges'', Ms. Anjali Behera, Handlooms and Textiles Secretary said, The artisans, who have played a crucial role to keep traditional crafts and handlooms of the country alive, should be rewarded satisfactorily through trade fairs, said

Trade fairs create opportunities for small producers where they can receive proper prices for their products through capacity building, market access, refinance, living wages, community development and sustainable income, she added.

Trade fairs are mainly aimed at alleviation of poverty and promotion of entrepreneurship development, stated Mr. I. Mallikarjuna, Executive Director of Fair Trade Forum (India). At present, there are around 75 listed organizations in the country which share business of around Rs.2 billion in country's overall export of Rs. 180 billion, he added.

He further added that, initially, western markets had been targeted for product marketing; but now, as the trade potential in domestic markets has improved with the emergence of huge middle-class buyers, these markets can be tapped to offer adequate compensation to Indian artisans for their products.
