According to the state's requirement of yarn worth Rs 206 crore a year, the state government will support the handloom industry with 40 per cent input subsidy of 82 crore apart from the 10 per cent subsidy assured by the Centre, said minister, according to media reports. Further, the minister stated that with the financial assistance from the government, it is the duty of authorities to support the handloom weavers and increase demand for their items.
Earlier, the minister had also appealed government officials, party leaders and students of all state-run educational institutions to wear handloom clothes at least once in a week.
Geo-tagging and Aadhaar-linking of all the 16,776 handlooms functioning in Telangana under 5,505 weavers’ societies was completed in a recent survey of the handloom industry. These linkages will help the government implement welfare schemes for the handloom weavers.
The officials of the handlooms department have also carried out a study of the Cooptex of Tamil Nadu in order to work on the same model in Telangana. (RR)
