The Khadi & Village Industries Commission (KVIC) is initiating a project named ‘Khadi Gaon’ in each state of India, with the goal to scale up employment in rural areas and also push khadi and village industries products from these regions. This was revealed by KVIC chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena on the sidelines of a two day KVIC workshop held in Ahmedabad.

“Under the project, KVIC will choose individuals who are interested in being self-reliant by providing them basic training to operate, along with the material required for khadi spinning and other cottage industries,” Saxena said.

The Khadi Gaon project will first be implemented in five villages in each of the states of India, which will be achieved in a year’s time.

Other than charkha spinning, other village industries activities include bakery, small oil mills, candle making, pottery, incense sticks making, honey bee cultivation, etc.

According to Saxena, KVIC is also changing the existing charkha design from 8 spindles to 10 spindles and also making it light-weight, which is expected to increase of the spinner by 25 per cent. (AR)
