A weaver training programme of the Kha-Nachou Handloom Cluster Third batch is currently underway in Imphal, Manipur. The training programme has been organised as part of the Skill Development Programme of the Integrated Skill Development Scheme (ISDS) of the Indian ministry of textiles. The Kha-Nachou Handloom Cluster's 25 weavers are participating in it.

The 50-day training programme for weavers is being conducted by Medha Handloom Enterprises, an implementation agency. Manipur's department of commerce and industries (DIC) has sponsored this programme, according to media reports.

There are 61 clusters in the state, with 51 clusters from the North East Textile Promotion Scheme. Medha Handloom Enterprises has been amongst all of these 51 clusters.

Manipur's handloom industry offers employment to a number of people to help boost the economy and reduce unemployment in the state. Manipur DIC gets close to Rs 50 crore from the Indian government every year. This amount is invested for the improvement of handloom clusters. (KD)
