A mini textile park will be set up at Kodakandla in Telangana’s Warangal district to create new livelihood avenues for about 20,000 weaving families in the region, according to state information technology and industries minister KT Rama Rao, who recently said thousands of weavers from Kodakandla who had migrated to other states are keen to return.

The state will continue to extend further support to such weavers, he was quoted as saying by media reports from Hyderabad, where he addressed a meeting to review the progress of various programmes being implemented in the handloom and textile sectors.

The state will continue with the ambitious Bathukamma sarees production programme carried out on a large scale every year, especially to support power loom workers in the state, he said.

Noting that the Nethannaku Cheyutha scheme had come as a major relief for weavers during the pandemic and the subsequent economic crisis, the minister said with the state offering exemption and allowing weavers to withdraw their savings along with the government contribution before the prescribed period, about 25,000 weaver families had received a total of ₹95 crore.

He promised to take into consideration the requests from weavers to continue the programme and take up the issue with the government.
