1st Installment                                                             :           Rs  51,54,250/-

 

File under consideration of the Government.

 

The concept of a value added and sustainable efforts are being made to develop suitable venues on the lines of Hastashilpa grams, sourcing hubs and handicraft & handloom haats with incentives and resources from the government in the initial stage, which will showcase our traditional  and indigenous crafts which is the USP of the Directorate of Handicrafts and Handloom comprising of traditional aesthetically designed hand woven carpets by local artisans, Choktse created from locally sourced durable timber, traditional Thankas reflecting continuous cycle of life, death and re-birth, hand woven Angora Shawls, ethnic Chuktuk and Gyapa, organic Argeli Hand Made Paper products.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The long term perspective of the D.H.H. is to develop Sikkim into a leading handicraft and handloom destination both in India and globally. In the coming years it is expected that this sector will grow into a formidable industry having multiplier effects that will penetrate the social economic fabric positively. The government in the last two decades has been extremely proactive and benevolent in promoting  the Directorate of Handicrafts and Handloom as a thrust area and key sector for generating employment, creation of income and revenue, self sufficiency and self reliance and pursuant thereof  the budget allocation has been increased yearly. The focus of the Directorate of Handicrafts and Handloom is therefore to use the resources at our disposal, as also to tap the employment and income/ revenue generating potential of the handloom and handicraft sector optimally and ensure that the policy/ objectives of the government is complied and achieved in letter and spirit.

 

It is in this background that the D.H.H. proposes to undertake and execute programmes with a visible and aggressive strategy for training, production, enhancement of product marketability through publicity and percolation of progressive information, judicious deployment of artisans, weavers and beneficiaries in the respective arts and crafts.
