Weavers to get Rs.100 per day – KVIC Chairperson

Feb '10
A minimum wage of Rs.100 per day has been promised by Ms. Kumud Joshi, Chairperson, Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) to weavers and spinners, while addressing the South Zone Khadi Artisans' Convention.

The official said that artisans are getting paid as low as Rs 8 per day against more than eight hours of work, which is very unfair. Hence, she assured the artisans that they will be paid at least Rs.100 a day, as early as possible.

Ms. Joshi asked the artisans to demand for their rights for better living standards and proper wages. While, workers involved in khadi and village industries will experience the change in their living conditions, as, KVIC has introduced so many welfare schemes for them.

Moreover, the deprived artisans are provided proper houses along with other necessary benefits under the scheme. Funds for KVIC have been increased to Rs.4.9 billion in 2010-11, which stood at Rs.1.2 billion in 2008-09.

KVIC is also providing handlooms and 'Charkhas' to the artisans, as Ms. Kumud had found that the artisans at many places did not even have their personal looms. Further she informed that the weavers will be offered solar-powered Charkhas as it reduces human efforts.
