'Workshed-cum-Housing Scheme' for weavers dis-continued

22
Dec '08
“Integrated Handloom Development Scheme (IHDS)” has been introduced for its implementation during the XI Plan as a 'Centrally Sponsored Plan Scheme' for the development of handlooms sector and welfare of handlooms weavers.

However, the component of housing under the 'Workshed-cum-Housing Scheme' has been dis-continued during the XI Plan. The weavers may avail assistance towards construction of houses under Indira Awas Yojana of the Ministry of Rural Development. As such there is no proposal to provide financial assistance for construction of houses for weavers to any of the State Governments including Madhya Pradesh by the Ministry of Textiles.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Textiles, Shri E.V.K.S. Elangovan in a written reply in the Lok Sabha on December 22, 2008.
