India's first dedicated mall for indigenous khadi products and handicrafts is being planned in Ranchi, capital of Jharkhand state. The state government will soon provide land in the HEC area of the city for building the mall, chief minister Raghubar Das told a recent meeting of artisans and craftsmen organised by the Jharkhand Khadi Board.
If a market is offered along with the latest technologies, then people of the state can earn easily their livelihood, Indian media reports quoted him as saying.
State governor Droupadi Murmu also addressed the artisans and underlined the role of handicrafts in income generation. (DS)
