“People associated with the handloom sector will certainly be benefitted from this scheme,” Kumar was quoted as saying by media reports from the state.
India’s Bihar state will soon launch a ‘Chief Minister (CM) Integrated Weavers Development Scheme’ for the overall growth of the handloom sector and benefit of weavers, state chief minister Nitish Kumar recently announced. The chief minister was addressing weavers at a function in Patna organised on the occasion of National Handloom Day on August 7.
He said the state government is using handloom sheets in government hospitals and medical colleges to help weavers under a scheme.
About 7 lakh handloom products worth ₹24.87 crore have so far been manufactured under the ‘Satrangi Chadar Yojana’ and this has financially helped the weavers of the state, he added.
