Weaving is very common profession in India, and many people are connected directly and indirectly with textile industry in India. The Government of India is aware about the constraints problems being faced or facing by the peoples connected with textile industry or handloom weavers throughout the country primarily because of low productivity of handlooms, stiff competition from power loom and mill sector, inadequate inputs supply and marketing facilities channels as well as insufficient credit flow from institutional sources.
For the overall development of handloom sector and welfare of handloom weavers, the Government of India has taken various policy initiatives and schemes interventions like cluster approach, technological up-gradation, marketing promotion, revival of viable and potentially viable societies through loan waiver and recapitalization assistance, availability of subsidized yarn and credit, besides, providing health and life insurance cover to the handloom weavers. but these schems are not working effectively. May be the vast population or unknowing ness is a major factor of this.
There are some central Government schemes are available for the development of the handloom sector: –
1. Integrated Handlooms Development Scheme.
2. Marketing & Export Promotion Scheme.
3. Handloom Weaver’s Comprehensive Welfare Scheme.
4. Diversified Handlooms Development Scheme.
5. Mill Gate Price Scheme.
The office of the DC (Handlooms) and DC (Handicrafts) are functioning as attached Offices of the Ministry of Textiles with sufficient delegation of powers and functional autonomy to address the issues or problems pertaining to weavers and artisans and also for promotion and development of handlooms and handicrafts in India. Hence, no need is currently felt to create a separate Ministry for weavers and artisans in the country that help these peoples.
These are some problems handled by Indian handloom manufacturers or Indian weavers. After all these problems these Indian peoples or weavers continuing
Their work and producing very good and best quality products to full fill the demand in all over world. We just hopping that in near future govt. will take some steps that help these peoples.
