In order to acquaint the weavers of Imphal, Manipur, regarding various Central and state government schemes for their assistance, the Office of the District Handlooms and Textiles, Imphal West, organized an awareness campaign on 'assistance to handloom weavers under various schemes of Central and State Governments'.

Speaking in capacity of Chief Guest, Assistant Director cum Officer in-charge of Weavers Service Centre, Imphal, Kommu Ravindra, shared that if a woman weaver has a Weavers Credit Card she is entitled to obtain raw materials as well as financial assistance from the Industries Department.

Trying to persuade the weavers to get the card, he informed that if a woman weaver wants to obtain the card, the Government of India pays the contribution of Rs. 4,200 on her behalf.

On obtaining the card, if interested, a weaver gets a chance to undergo training on weaving and related activities at the Porompat Training Centre.

Besides training, if designs/products of a woman weaver get selected for any competition, she becomes eligible to get financial assistance of up to Rs. 50,000, Mr. Ravindra said.

He added that if a weaver is selected for participating in any handloom/handicraft fair outside Manipur, the entire travel expenses for such participation are borne by the Industries Department.

Briefing the attendees as a Functional President, Project Manager of District Handloom and Textiles, Imphal West, M Rajen, said the main aim behind organizing the awareness campaign is to promote the state's handloom industry and beefing-up financial conditions of the women weavers.
