Textile Ministry intends to set up handicraft stalls at Metro stations

Jul '09
The Ministry of Textiles intends to set up platforms for handicraft products on Metro Rail stations, for which it has approached Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for space on those stations.

This initiative for the handicrafts sector, which is first of its kind, will offer an opportunity for the artisans to present and sell their products at various vantage points across Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR).

A detailed presentation of the project was done for the officials of DMRC at the Ministry of Textiles. In this regard, DMRC will convey final decision by the first week of coming month though it has accepted the project, informed textile ministry officials.

This is a part of textile ministry's promotional activities, through which handicraft products will get exposure to the daily footfall of about nine lakh commuters which could increase to more than 10 lakh by the year 2010, expected an official in the ministry.

He further added that the ministry is trying to have two kiosks at each of the metro stations of Metro network in NCR with a total number of 160 stalls, which exclusively will display handcrafted products.

Office of the development commissioner (Handicrafts) will provide Rs 10 crore, for the project under Metro Hub Scheme, which is 25 percent of the overall project cost. It is expected that the total project cost will cross Rs. 40 crore.
