Jan '10
The government has introduced an Integrated Handloom Clusters Development Scheme (IHCDS) in 20 selected handloom clusters of the country in order to sustain and escalate the sector.

Under this scheme, each of these 20 clusters will be developed within four years at the cost of around Rs. 20 million. Each cluster comprises around 5,000 handlooms.

Finest and exclusive handloom products developed by these 20 clusters under the IHCD scheme had been displayed in a handloom cluster gallery of an expo organized in 2009.

Handloom and handicraft sector needs additional sops for development, pertaining to which the Textile Ministry will speak to the Commerce Ministry to prop up the sector.
