The Handloom Sector also forms a part of the National Textile Policy 2000, the details of which are as under:

The handloom sector is known for its heritage and the tradition of excellent craftsmanship. It provides livelihood to millions of weavers and craftsperson. The industry has not only survived but also grown over the decades due to its inherent strength like flexibility of production in small quantities, openness to innovation, low level of capital investment and immense possibility of designing fabrics.

Government will continue to accord priority to this sector. This was stated by the Minister of State for Textiles, Shri E.V.K.S. Elangovan in a reply to a question by Shri Penumalli Madhu in Rajya Sabha. He further added that steps would be taken to promote and develop its exclusiveness for the global market. Measure will include the following:

• Training modules will be developed for weavers engaged in the production of low value added items, who may not be able to survive the competition consequent on globalization, with the objective of upgrading their skills to enable them to find alternate employment in the textile or other allied sector.

• Comprehensive welfare measures will continue to be implemented in close cooperation with the State Governments, for better working environment and the social security of the weavers.

• Effective support systems in research and development, design inputs, skill upgradation and market linkages will be provided.
