KVIC attempts to boost cottage industries

Ranging from enhancement of domestic products to training programmes, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) has adopted a multi-pronged strategy for promotion of cotton industries in Uttarakhand.

KVIC, after establishing around 30,000 units in Uttarakhand, is now active towards developing entrepreneurship skills through training programmes which are being conducted at training centres in Dehradun and Haldwani.

In spite of this, khadi still remains to be the prime focus for KVIC and for the purpose it has collaborated with several NGOs to start training programmes for product development and packaging, while not ignoring domestic products like readymade garments, bedcovers, bed-sheets and carpets.

To cite a few examples, it is now the duty of Uttarakhand Bamboo and Fibre Development Board, Dehradun, a state government agency, to develop new designs in ringal, a variety of hill bamboo, by using domestically available raw material.

Karnail Singh, State Director, KVIC, noted that by working closely with the NGOs and government agencies, they have moved a step further to start afresh.

Nonetheless, apathy and lack of entrepreneurial skill have rendered establishment of new units to be a tough job, mainly in Uttarakhand.

This has also had an effect on the annual targets. KVIC while significantly downsizing the targets for the current financial year said that, now against its original target of 1,300 units, it will be establishing only 1,100 units.
