Bihar to go for Branding of Khadi

Chief Minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar said the government would go for branding of finer quality of Khadi clothes made in the state to attract the ‘newer generation’ through designer garments made of it.

He said this at a function to mark the ‘Rashtriya Charkha Diwas’ in Patna in a bid to promote the Khadi industry in Bihar. Proper branding of Khadi clothes would raise its demand among the people, the CM also said the state Industries department has entered into an agreement with NIFT for new design Khadi garments. In a bid to promote the Khadi industry in Bihar, the state government would erect Rs.17 crore building for it to set up showrooms.

“From October 2, the government would offer 10 per cent concession on purchase of Khadi clothes,” Nitish said. The state government was making every effort to popularise Khadi in view of the centenary celebrations of Champaran satyagraha, Mahatma Gandhi’s first major agitation against the British, he added.

Industries minister, Jai Kumar Singh and Gandhian Razi Ahmad were present on the occasion among others.
