The Minister also said that KVIC should compile its best practices for the benefit of others as well as adopt the best practices followed by others particularly, the State Khadi and Village Industries Boards.

Speaking on the occasion, Secretary (MSME), Shri Dinesh Rai,, also emphasized the need to take urgent effective steps on the part of KVIC towards speeding up implementation of Khadi Reforms and Development Programme (KRDP) through further simplification of procedures, timely utilization of funds and adequate publicity about newly launched schemes of MDA on khadi production towards attaining sustainability in the sector.

During the discussion, it was highlighted that the Government has introduced the scheme of Market Development Assistance on production of khadi w.e.f. 1 April 2010 in place of rebate scheme. It was clarified that for the first time a definite share of 25% of the incentive on production was earmarked for spinners and weavers who have traditionally been involved in producing khadi, and that greater flexibility was given to khadi institutions to utilize a major part of the assistance in modernizing equipments, training and capacity building of artisans as well as modernization of sales outlets, improvement in designs, publicity, providing discount to customers, etc. It was informed that funds to the tune of Rs 39.75 crore has been released to KVIC recently as an advance for settlement of claims.
