Arunachal skill centre gets Indian silk board recognition
The MG Community Skill Development & Training Centre in Oyan village in East Siang district of India’s north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh has been recognized by the Silk Mark Organisation of India under the Central Silk Board (CSB) of the ministry of textiles. The centre can now use the ‘silk mark’ on its 100 per cent natural clothes.

The CSB organisation controls quality of silk products in the country.

Set up in July 2014, the training centre has been conducting skill development training for creating self-employment avenues in rural areas. It is implementing central-sponsored projects for economic enhancement of the rural entrepreneurs through handloom and handicraft activities.

The skill development and training centre is an initiative of the Siang Tea Industries Ltd of Arunachal, which is working for promotion of organic farming in the state, according to media reports from the region.

The centre recently organised an exhibition-cum-sale event at Oyan village, bordering Jonai in Assam in which rural weavers and entrepreneurs from different parts of the zone participated. (DS)
