The Government has been implementing Integrated Handlooms Development Scheme, Marketing and Export Promotion Scheme, Handloom Weavers Comprehensive Welfare Scheme, Mill Gate Price Scheme and Diversified Handloom Development Scheme for the overall development of the handloom sector and welfare of the handloom weavers during XI Plan. This information was given by the Minister of State for Textiles, Smt. Panabaaka Lakshmi in the Rajya Sabha, in a written reply to a question by Shri Kamal Akhtar and Shri Nand Kishore Yadav.

The Minister further stated that during the X Five Year Plan, 11 schemes were in implementation. In the year 2007 the Government of India has introduced 5 Schemes by modifying the components and amalgamation for implementation during the XI Plan period.

The Minister further stated that most of the schemes are implemented through State Governments. Implementation, monitoring and evaluation of these schemes in the States is done through the State Level Project Committee (SLPC) which consists of experts from the handloom sector. The Committee is responsible for scrutinising the project proposals, monitoring evaluation etc. and recommend the implementing agency. In addition, the Government of India at its level ensures that the activities taken up under the above schemes are in consonance with the stated objectives of the scheme and are implemented for the overall interest of the growth and development of the handloom sector by obtaining periodic reports from the State Governments.
