Telangana to soon announce handloom policy
Dec '16
The Telangana government will soon announce a handloom policy that will incorporate establishment of 12 handloom clusters in the state, Telangana minister for textile and handlooms KT Rama Rao has said. This policy will also focus on the development of handloom products and the weaver community in the state along with the welfare of workers.

The handloom policy will provide health insurance and pension facilities to the workers and their family members, according to media reports.

Of the 2,000 textile looms in Pochampally Textile Park, only 250 looms are working. The government will grant aid for the development of the Textile Park, said Rao during his trip to Pochampally Textile Park in Yadadri-Bhuvanagiri district. He also visited the textile parks in Malkapur and Dandu Malkapuram.

Retailing of handloom products will be expanded via e-commerce websites and special outlets will also be opened at Yadadri and Malkapur, he said. Further, the local handloom items will also be sold at 'Golconda', the handicrafts showroom being established in New Delhi by the state government.

In order to develop the handloom and textile sectors of the state, government will ask political representatives and officials to wear handloom clothes at least once in a week. The government will directly purchase handloom fabric from the weavers and will also provide better marketing facilities for handloom products. (RR)
