Master craftsmen would impart training of these conventional crafts to these youngsters, which would certainly present them with more rewarding self-employment opportunities, in times to come.

Moreover, this would also facilitate conservation of the conventional handicraft, which is now conserved by the craftsmen, and would also motivate the youngsters to adopt this lucrative form of art as means of self-employment.

Around 22 specified fields of these conventional handicrafts will be covered under the training scheme, and training would be imparted to learners at 42 different locations.
