Govt unveils policy to promote e-marketing of handloom

The government has launched a policy framework to promote e-marketing of handloom products, in order to promote marketing of the fabric in general and to reach out to the younger customers in particular, an official statement said.

The policy framework has been developed by the Office of Development Commissioner (Handlooms) under the Ministry of Textiles, with the key objectives of promoting the interests of both producers and consumers of handloom products.

Under the policy framework, the Office of DC (Handlooms) would collaborate with approved e-commerce entities in promoting e-marketing of handloom products, in a transparent, competitive and effective manner. The policy thus widens the existing ambit of institutional collaboration between Office of DC (Handlooms) and e-commerce players.

Any e-commerce entity willing to work for promotion of online marketing of handloom products in collaboration with the Office may apply for the same. The application will be scrutinized by a specially constituted Committee. After satisfying itself about the track record and turnover of the applicant, the committee would give its recommendations, keeping in view the handloom fabric producing areas proposed to be covered through e-marketing and the proposed rollout plan. Decision on the application will be taken after duly considering the recommendations of the committee. Processing of applications will be completed within three weeks.

An e-commerce entity approved by the Office would be required to make priority display of handloom products on its home page, leading to an exclusive section for certified/branded handloom products carrying either 'India Handloom' brand or Handloom mark. The framework specifies a ceiling for the service charges that can be levied by the entity. The entity would also be required to comply with any other guidelines/conditions notified by the Office of DC (Handlooms) in the interest of handloom producers/weavers.

The performance of approved e-commerce entities would be monitored continuously. Their requests for extension would depend their performance.

According to the statement, the policy would provide a fillip to the handloom sector, complementing recent initiatives of the Government to promote handlooms of India, such as the observance of National Handloom Day and launch of 'India Handloom' brand. (SH)
