As a measure to enhance the sales of handicrafts in the country, the government owned Central Cottage Industries Corporation of India (CCIC) is in talks with various state governments to open franchise outlets in different states, such as Rajasthan, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala and Goa, said Mr. M.A. Ibrahimi, Managing Director, CCIC.

Outlets in these states are likely to open in a year, and opening at least one outlet in each state is CCIC's aim. It also plans to cash on the approaching Commonwealth Games on account of which hordes of foreigners are expected to come into the country.

CCIC is looking to set up kiosks, of village handicraft items and apparels bearing game's logo, in games stadium in the month of October next year when the proposed mega event has been scheduled.

At present, CCIC has its branches in the cities like Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi and Bangalore as well as franchises in Gurgaon, Patna, Rajgir and Copenhagen (Denmark).
