The Centre will also provide a subsidy of 70 per cent for the revival of spinning mill at Loitang Khunou in Imphal, said media reports quoting the minister. It is the only spinning mill for cotton in the entire northeast region.
The minister was at the opening of new bank accounts of weavers, which was jointly organised by the department of textiles, commerce & industry and the directorate of handlooms & textiles. Nearly 300 weavers opened their bank accounts.
"Handloom and handicraft is very important because it is the main source of income in our state and opening of bank accounts of weavers will check transparency of any implementing agency," said the minister.
Further, the minister said that with the rise in unemployment in the state, the government is planning to generate job opportunity for 1 lakh people under various departments.
Manipur has 2.04 lakh handloom workers and 1.90 lakh looms, as per the 2009-10 handloom census making it the state with the highest concentration of weavers in possession of looms. (RR)
