The Jammu and Kashmir state government is endeavouring to strengthen its khadi industry for betterment of those engaged in the sector.

As parts of efforts, the Minister for Industries and Commerce S S Slathia distributed cheques worth two million rupees to 35 khadi institutions in the state as an incentive package for enhancing silk production in the state.

The government is trying to strengthen the Khadi and Village Industries Board (KVIB) for benefit of poor male as well as female artisans, said Mr. Slathia, who also heads KVIB as Chairman. He proposed organizing khadi and village industries exhibitions in different parts of the state to strengthen the sector.

He vouched complete government support for improving lives of khadi and handloom artisans, and added that all issues concerning the khadi industry would be raised before the Khadi Village Industries Commission, Government of India, seeking early redressal.

Talking to the members of Khadi Societies, the Minister reiterated the government's promise of extending every possible help for upgrading handloom and handicraft sectors. He informed them that several schemes have been introduced for improving living standard of artisans in the state.

Further, Mr. Slathia said that as the Kashmir Board silk is recognized across the world, special incentives have been extended for state artisans to encourage them to enhance silk production. The stipend for handicraft trainees has been increased by the government, as also the best performing Artisans of the State would qualify for a National Award of Rs. 100,000, he added.
