To promote livelihoods of craftspersons in textile, apparel and footwear sectors, the government of Jharkhand is mulling initiatives to market its ethnic textile and handloom products.
The state government’s efforts, led by Jharkhand Silk Textile and Handicraft Development Corporation Ltd (Jharcraft), were discussed at a seminar in Delhi today.
Jharcraft is a government of Jharkhand undertaking formed to initiate steps to provide sustainable livelihood opportunities in the rural areas, based on sericulture, handloom, handicraft and other allied activities.
Government of Jharkhand Chief Secretary Raj Bala Verma said: “The major benefits of policies of Jharkhand in the textile industry is that the state is offering major incentives for the investors and providing 50 per cent of the rebate for land acquisition tax.”
“Jharcraft hopes to provide a platform to the artisans and weavers to merchandise their own products, through the maximum utilisation of resources and manpower of Jharkhand,” Jharcraft Managing Director K Ravi Kumar said.
