The state government of Telangana has placed an order for one crore saris worth Rs 200 crore with powerloom weavers in Sricilla town of Rajanna district of the state. The saris are to be distributed by the government to women living below the poverty line during Bathukamma—the nine day floral festival celebrated usually in September–October.

The saris would be produced on 20,000 powerlooms including Mutually Aided Co-operative Societies (MACS), small scale industries (SSIs), individual powerloom weavers and the Textile Park.

State handlooms development commissioner Shailaja Ramayyar has met with the owners of MACS, SSI and others and has asked them to supply the saris by August 15, according to a media report.

The state government has also placed orders for bedsheets and blankets for hospitals with powerloom weavers in Sircilla, the town which has been in the news for high suicide rates due to unemployment. (RKS)
