KVIC Outlet Registers Record Rs.1.08 cr Sale

The outlet of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) at Connaught Place here has registered a record Rs.1.08 crore sale on October 22, its highest so far.

“The previous sales record was of Rs.82.5 lakh, which was recorded at the same outlet on October 2 last year. It was due to an appeal made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 18 at Ludhiana, which has impacted four-fold increase in the sale of Khadi,” VK Saxena, chairman of KVIC said.

He thanked the Prime Minister for support to Khadi and also thanked to Khadi lovers for adopting and promoting swadeshi product.

He also said the sale on October 22, 2015, was only Rs.27 lakh and on the same date this year, it has increased four-fold to Rs.1.08 crore.

Modi, in his recent function at Ludhiana, had said that today’s mantra should be “Khadi for Nation and Khadi for Fashion.”
