She further said that a proposal for creating e-marketing platform for marketing support and service scheme has been received from export promotion council for handicrafts (EPCH) to help buyers and sellers to procure/sell/ promote products online.

The minister said that the Central Cottage Industries Corporation and Handloom and Handicrafts Export Corporation have undertaken digital marketing, as many state corporations are selling their handicrafts products through it.

The government is planning to launch a voluntary scheme for rendering quality and authenticity of handicrafts products at cluster and mega cluster level with a vision to differentiate genuine and socially - environmentally compliant handicrafts products.

The textile minister also asked the Textiles Committee to evolve a rating scheme for standardisation of handmade carpet manufacturing unit. (PA)
