Telangana weavers to get direct subsidy: Minister
Apr '17
KT Rama Rao, handlooms and textiles minister of Telanagana has asked officials to formulate a handloom directory containing all the details of the weavers' condition. He said that policies should be made to directly give subsidy benefits to handloom weavers and it could be made available to them by linking their Aadhaar and biometric identities.

Rao said at a review meeting held with concerned officials that chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao wished to have a detailed document containing information about the number of handlooms, weavers and workers, production capacity of the units and more. It will help the government create special policies to benefit the handloom and powerloom sectors.

The minister has also asked for data regarding the number of silk, cotton and grey cloth weavers as well as the information pertaining to marketing facilities for purchasing their items. The weavers should also get the opportunity to sell their items to the government as well as the outside market.

The government already provides 50 per cent subsidy on yarn to handloom weavers. The plan to set up handloom depots owned by the state in addition to National Handloom Development Corporation yarn depots was also discussed at the meeting. (KD)
