The scheme has been formulated by merging all the major components of other schemes namely Integrated Handlooms Development Scheme (IHDS), Marketing and Export Promotion Scheme (MEPS) and Diversified Handloom Development Scheme (DHDS), which is one of the components of National Handloom Development Programme (NHDP) for implementation. The scheme will follow a need-based approach for the integrated and holistic development of handlooms and the welfare of handloom weavers.
Central Government of India
Provides need based assistance for integrated and holistic development of handlooms and weavers
Agencies eligible to implement consolidation of existing clusters and new clusters are as follows:
Financial assistance per cluster based on the number of handlooms (300-500 and 5,000 and above) for various components covered under the scheme.
The scheme will support weavers, both within and outside the cooperative fold including self-help groups, NGOs, etc., towards the raw material, design inputs, technology up gradation, marketing support through exhibitions, create permanent infrastructure in the form of Urban Haats, marketing complexes, setting up of Weavers Service Centres (WSCs) and Indian Institutes of Handlooms Technology (IIHTs), development of web portal for e-marketing of handloom products, etc.
For consolidation of these clusters, financial assistance will be provided for implementing various interventions. Financial assistance towards hard interventions like technological up gradation will be shared in percentage ratios by State and Central Governments
Development of each cluster will be done by the ImplementingAgency through the State Government concerned as a Centrally sponsored scheme in a project mode. The state government will invite proposals/ projects from the Implementing Agencies. The project report will comprise baseline survey, diagnostic study report and a concrete action plan for the first year and tentative action plan for the second, third and fourth years. The project report will be considered by a State Level Project Committee (SLPC), headed by the State Commissioner/Director of Handlooms concerned for scrutiny, verification, etc.
