Textiles ministry to allot handloom stalls online

Sep '16
India’s ministry of textiles has launched an online portal for handloom stall allotment. This weaver-friendly platform has been introduced to streamline the process of allotting handloom stalls and to ensure a level playing field for fresh applicants. It is expected to provide transparency, simplify procedures and offer ease of access to handloom weavers.

Weavers and organisations can apply on the online portal as and when online applications are called by way of advertisements in leading newspapers. They need to register themselves for applying for allotment for the first time and the database will be updated from then on. A login ID and password will be allotted to them for the purpose of submitting an application.

After getting registered, they can apply online. These applications will automatically be forwarded to the Weavers Service Centre (WSC) based on the applicant’s jurisdiction. WSCs will scrutinise the applications of eligible applicants online within a stipulated time period and also state the reasons for not recommending a particular application. The recommended applications will be compiled centrally by the system and will be ready for computerised draw. A state-wise and slot-wise computerised list of selected candidates will be prepared along with a waitlist.

The system will send an alert SMS and email mentioning allotment of stall along with a stall number to the allottee. The applicant can print the allotment letter from portal after logging into it. With the printed copy of allotment letter, they can approach the organisers for handing their stalls over to them.

Launching the website, textiles secretary Rashmi Verma said the ministry will take up a similar exercise for providing convenience to handicraft artisans too. (KT)
