In Jammu & Kashmir, handloom sector is performing a key role in raising the socio-economic status of the local artisans, said Minister of Industries and Commerce, Mr. S. S. Slathia, who further informed that the government is mulling to introduce latest techniques into the sector to develop it on modern lines.

The Minister was speaking while chairing the 56th Board of Directors meeting of J&K Handloom Development Corporation (JKHDC). The sector is witnessing recovery on account of the efforts of the government and the people engaged in handloom manufacturing, added Mr. Slathia hoping that the coordinated efforts and hard work would improve the condition of the sector and of the people associated with it.

Sufficient funds and expertise are available to bring revolution in the sector, he said, referring to the recent steps taken by the coalition government under the leadership of Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah.

Various agenda points had also been discussed in the meeting, which included the conformation of notes of the previous board meeting, proposals for 2009-2010 budgets, arranging annual general meeting of share-holders, performance of the ongoing year and adoption of the SICOP service rules.

For the development of JKHDC and for the betterment of employees, the subcommittees would be framed to settle various issues in a time-bound manner, the meeting decided.

The meeting was informed that a project of Rs. 4.93 crore, for the development of woolen sector in the state, was approved under Prime Minister's Economic Package of which Rs. 3.61 crore has been spent on various activities.

It was also informed in the meeting that the Corporation has achieved the production of 2.76 lakh meters and the sales stood at over Rs. 4 crore during the last fiscal year.
