Project at Malda to develop handloom industry

20
Jul '09
In order to develop the standard of handloom industry, Malda district has formed a group of 350 weavers, who weave traditional napkins locally known as gamchha. The group has been formed at Sat-tari village in English Bazaar block.

The center and the state government provided Rs. 9.62 lakh and Rs. 1.2 lakh respectively to the district authorities for the project to build a common facility centre for design development, a yarn depot and other infrastructural developments at Sat-tari.

The handloom development office in Malda already has deposited Rs. 3 lakh with the National Handloom Development Corporation (NHDC) to procure yarn for the project. The proposed estimate of this project is Rs. 32.30 lakh for three years.

Mr. Molay Kumar Sarkar, Handloom Development Officer informed that these 350 weavers at Sat-tari will be trained under the guidance of a master trainer to make saris, other fabrics for garments and other quality items.

For this project, the department has formed 35 self-help groups (SHG) with 10 members in each group and created 35 bank accounts. To monitor the project and to market the produce of the group, one more group has been formed by selecting one member each from 35 SHGs.

To make the project viable, the selected members of these consortiums may visit a mega-cluster project in another state for a short training. After three years, the textile departments will devolve the whole project to the consortium at Sat-tari.

The handloom development officer informed that another project has also been planned at Bengal Brand Carpet Weaving Centre at Madia in Malda as many skilled people living in English Bazaar Block work in carpet industry of Varanasi and other states.
