The cards will make the weavers and different workers qualified for profiting benefits under the government welfare plans. New information will assist the government in achieving the handloom workers with welfare plans, as indicated by an office report.

As indicated by the 2009-10 evaluation, there were 43.31 lakh handloom workers in the nation, of which 36.33 lakh were in country ranges and 6.98 lakh workers were dwelling in urban territories.

The actual figure must be less,” Development Commissioner (Handlooms) Shantmanu said.
