The textiles ministry is also helping the industry go digital, opening bank accounts for workers and issuing Aadhaar cards with the assistance of local administration, said Irani at the Make in India Fashion Summit recently held in Delhi.
Irani said that there’s a need to bring talent from the countryside to the centre stage and let artisans and weavers know that they are not devoid of appreciation.
Speaking about skill development, she said that it has helped increase placements by up to 75 per cent. The government also conducts follow ups regarding the same.
A session on khadi called ‘Reinventing Khadi- Fabric of the Future’ was also held at the summit. Union minister Kalraj Mishra said that the fabric has gained prominence once again among masses. Creative head at Ritu Beri designs Khushboo Aggarwal said that khadi is becoming fashionable as it is being blended with cotton and silk to give it a global image. (KD)
