Move to improve earnings of scheduled caste artisans

The ministry of textiles and the ministry of social justice and empowerment have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), to improve the earnings of scheduled caste category artisans across the country. One of the aims of the MoU is to do need assessment and gap identification, through popularising various schemes by holding awareness camps.

The initiative will be jointly undertaken by the office of the Development Commissioner (Handicrafts), ministry of textiles and National Scheduled Castes Finance and Development Corporation (NSFDC), a PSU under ministry of social justice and empowerment.

The MoU aims to offer extensive need-based skill up-gradation in the identified clusters having dominant presence of scheduled caste artisans, in the field of innovative and market-friendly designs, and adoption of modern tools and techniques.

It will also encourage enhanced participation of scheduled caste artisans and their producer groups, in domestic and international marketing events.

The two government departments will also provide working capital credit for scheduled caste artisans at concessional rates, by combining the benefits provided by ministry of textiles and ministry of social justice and empowerment. (AR)
