Proposal to set up handicraft village in Goa

07
Jan '09
The Goa Handicrafts Rural and Small Scale Industries Development Corporation (GHRSSIDC) is planning to set up a arts and crafts centre at Dhargalim to provide a boost to the sector. The village is expected to be set up on an area of 15-20 acres.

The acquisition of the land is expected to be completed shortly. Training programmes and workshops will be held for the benefit of the artisans of Goa at the centre. GHRSSIDC had also sought the help of the South Asia Foundation for the project.

A delegation from the corporation had visited different handicraft villages set up along the same lines in Delhi and Varanasi. The corporation expects that with the setting up of the village, the handicrafts of the state will be taken to greater heights.
