The Minister further stated that most of the schemes are implemented through State Governments. Implementation, monitoring and evaluation of these schemes in the States is done through the State Level Project Committee (SLPC) which consists of experts from the handloom sector. The Committee is responsible for scrutinising the project proposals, monitoring evaluation etc. and recommend the implementing agency. In addition, the Government of India at its level ensures that the activities taken up under the above schemes are in consonance with the stated objectives of the scheme and are implemented for the overall interest of the growth and development of the handloom sector by obtaining periodic reports from the State Governments.
