Govt to increase stipend of handicraft trainees

15
Oct '09
Government of Jammu & Kashmir would take all possible efforts to strengthen state's handicraft sector, stated Chief Minister Mr. Omer Abdullah while announcing the raise in stipend of trainees in handicraft centers of the state.

Following the proposal from Ministry of Commerce and Industries, the Chief Minister agreed to increase the stipend during the inaugural ceremony of the Craft Museum School of Designs (CMSD), of the handicraft department, set up at a cost of 27.6 million.

The Chief Minister assured artisans and the people associated with the handicraft sector that the state government will organize various international handicraft exhibitions, conduct more buyer seller meets and take all efforts required to prop-up the handicraft industry.

He added that the handicraft products of the state are very unique, many of which are being copied; hence there is a need to preserve this enchanting skill.

He further emphasized on the proper utilization of Geographical Indication status of Pashmina, Sozni and Kani in order to protect these crafts as many products are being sold as Made in Kashmir products, for instance, machine made Amritsar shawls are labeled as Kashmiri item while the Nepali shawls are tagged as Kashmir Pashmina.

The CM suggested the authorities to make the museum a tourist stopover and impose entry tax on the visitor to tackle maintenance expenses. Children should also be encouraged to visit this institution in order to make them interact with art and the artists, he added.

Effective actions would be taken against the unscrupulous elements who sell their items under the name of Kashmiri products, said a former Minister, who urged the CM to revise the current honorarium for trainees.

Handicraft exports plummeted to Rs. 7 billion this year, however, they are expected to see heights again and reach up to Rs. 12 billion.

The museum will be linked with all the museums across the country and it would prove to be a tourist itinerary, where state's art can be introduced to the outside world, said the Director handicrafts Mr. Showkat Ahmed Zargar.
