Finance Minister, TM Thomas Isaac announced that, an income support scheme will be introduced for traditional sectors in the month of July by the Kerala state government. He was speaking after dedicating 'Green Army', Wadakkanchery block panchayat's labour bank, to the agriculture sector in the State.

This scheme will offer financial empowerment to the immensely underpaid workforce in the traditional sectors. Government has allocated Rs 500 million for this scheme, under which workers of coir, handloom and khadi industries would be brought in the initial phase, informed the Minister.

Minimum 100 working days a year, with daily wage of Rs 150 would be ensured, under this scheme. Workers will have income as well as job security through this scheme, as the government intends to support traditional industries through the scheme by securing their workforce.

Moreover, a subsidy would also be provided for Coirfed to procure coir products, informed Dr Isaac, who stated that, to deal with marketing challenges, steps to bring in modernization are required.

He further cited Green Army as a role model for traditional sectors, which has brought technological advancements in to the traditional agricultural activities. As per the Minister, the government is thinking over establishing labour banks in other districts as well.
