The government of the southern Indian state of Kerala is planning to increase the sales of Khadi products to Rs. 1 billion in 2013.
 
Mr. CN Balakrishnan, Minister of the Kerala Khadi and Village Industries Board, announced after inaugurating a new building and commercial center of Khadi Board at the Khadi Tower in the Kaloor region of Kochi, Kerala.
 
Mr. Balakrishnan said the government will take all possible steps to ensure the welfare of the workers employed under the khadi sector, including minimum wages and security for them, reports The New Indian Express.
 
The new commercial center includes an exclusive showroom set up at the ground floor of the Khadi Tower, which will offer khadi and silk materials from Kerala, West Bengal and Karnataka.
 
The showroom renovated at an estimated cost of Rs. 6 million has a floor area of 4,500 square feet and would offer varieties in sarees, shirts and Indian dress materials including silks from Pochampilly, Balkussery, Kantha, Varanasi, Banaras, Jerry Silk, Jute Silk and Payyannur Silk.
 
Earlier this week, the Onam-Ramzan special sales fair, organized by the Khadi Board, opened with a selection of handmade textiles and handicrafts as well as other products made from Khadi, on which the government offers 30 percent rebates as a boost for the khadi industry. 
 
Puliyilakkara Dhothis, Dhaka Muslin, Kuppadam Dhothis are the highlights of the Kerala Onam-Ramzan khadi fair.
