A Handloom Development Cluster Project has recently been launched, under the Integrated Handloom Development Scheme. The District Industries Centre (DIC) of Imphal East organized the inaugural ceremony of the project in association with the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India.

The government offered this cluster development project to the Self-Help Groups (SHGs) and weavers to boost the economic conditions of the state of Manipur, informed Thongju MLA and Deputy Chairman of the Manipur State Planning Board, Mr. Bijoy Koijam, who was present at the event as a Chief Guest.

Citing this project as a big project, he stated that the state is still lagging behind in handloom production, though it has done a remarkable endeavor in sports, horticulture
and agriculture sector. Therefore, he appealed the SHGs and the weavers of the state to avail the benefits offered by the Central government.

This Handloom Development Cluster Project will provide assistance to around 500 families of Uchekon. Beneficiaries of the project received cheques towards the end of the function.
