Jharcraft in India's Jharkhand signs MoU with Banka Silk

Feb '18
The Jharkhand Silk Textile and Handicraft Development Corporation (Jharcraft) recently signed an agreement with Banka Silk, a private start-up in adjoining Bihar, to train the state's tussar weavers to cut and stitch silk garments as per market demands and promote the clothes in offline counters and online through platforms like Amazon, Flipkart and Myntra.

State director of industries K Ravikumar and Banka Silk founder Udayan Singh signed the agreement at the Ranchi secretariat in presence of chief minister Raghubar Das, chief secretary Rajbala Verma and development commissioner Amit Khare. The chief minister promised administrative help, according to reports in east Indian press.

According to Jharcraft managing director Manjunath Bhajantri, many weavers will learn tailoring and the value-addition will boost their income.

Three-year-old Banka Silk aims to revive the past glory of Banka, a place in Bihar, as a silk centre, and rescue artisans from the clutches of loan sharks. (DS)
