Ali Muhammad Sagar, Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs announced that, useful steps will be taken, to guarantee efficient marketing of domestic handicrafts and to reduce the practice of sales of illicit goods in the name of Kashmir handicrafts.

The announcement was made during the Minister's visit with the representatives of Government Central Market Shopkeepers Association.

Sagar further added that, the existing law will also be enforced rigidly to stop sale of fake handicrafts under the Kashmiri handicrafts tag.

In order to lure maximum tourists to the ancient Central Market, sufficient steps such as, developing the market in to a state-of-the-art market will be discussed with the concerned authorities. This will also aid in turning the market in to a key handicraft selling market of the state.

The Minister for Industries and Commerce, Surjit Singh Slathia said that, the government was well aware about the adversities faced by the handicraft artisans and dealers and therefore, all possible solutions will be explored to diversify the marketing avenues for sale of Kashmiri handicrafts throughout the country and abroad.

The immaculate dignity of Kashmiri handicrafts will be safeguarded at all costs, averred Slathia. He further informed that, the government was aware about some corrupt traders that were involved in selling of illicit handicraft goods under the tag, Kashmiri handicrafts and stringent action will be taken against those found guilty.
