Textile Ministry accords token of recognition to eccentric artisans

14
Apr '08
Dharavi, known as the largest slum area in the continent has cradled thousands of artisans; from potters to weavers, all seeking to come into prominence but in vain. After all these years of slogging for even the bare essentials, the Government seemed to have sparkled hope into their eyes.

The sector which had until now worked as a silent slave contributing to the country's economy, will finally get its rightful share of recognition. The ministry of textile has initiated the process of issuing thousands of identification cards to the potters in Kumbharwada in Dharvi. Leather manufacturing and embroidery units are next in line.

Government has decided to award identity cards to various craftsmen who have taciturnly borne the grudges of an anonymous living for decades. Already 500 cards have been issued to potters in a bid to ensure that these long-standing rich traditional skills, transcended as a legacy, are withheld from becoming oblivion.

Through these identity cards, artisans can avail any kind of assistance in marketing their wares, financing special projects, safeguarding better tools and even training. Additionally, it will also provide them with social security by way of health and life insurance scheme.

This endeavor will also allow artisans to sell their wares at Government organized exhibitions or in emporiums. Besides, those who aim to export their goods will also be directed towards the right channels.
