Das Focuses more on Manufacturing Apparel

Jharkhand, chief minister Raghubar Das has urged the weaving community of the state to focus on manufacturing more marketable and fashionable apparel products.

Jharkhand produces roughly 82 percent of the total silk that is produced in the country. However, manufacturers of silk products here must produce according to the demands of the market as Jharkhand and Jharcraft have the potential to become big time national and global markets in silk and lac based products in the coming years.

Stating that the weaving industry is hinging crucially on the participation of women, the chief minister said that his government will be bringing nearly 4.82 lakh women under the new skill development programme. A fund of Rs 700 crore has been provisioned in this year’s budget for the skill development programme.

The government, he said, is also gearing up to establish a state industries board, which will connect women of 32,000 villages for providing them alternative livelihoods.

Jharcraft has taken steps towards exploring the global market through e-commerce platforms and formally launched the sale of silk sarees, men apparels and other products on a global e-commerce company.
