Mr Maran informed the house that the government had introduced an insurance scheme for weavers, in which 1.7 million weavers had been enrolled in the previous fiscal year and 1.8 million had availed of the scheme in the current fiscal year.

He added by saying that, there were 2.52 million handloom units as per available data and that most of these were functional, except for a few in Orissa and Kerala. He further informed that 733 handloom cooperative societies in Orissa and 68 in Kerala were non-functional.
