The TRS government is committed to the welfare of handloom and powerloom weavers and has taken several measures for the revival of the handloom sector and welfare of weavers..
After formation of Telangana, Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s directive was to help both handloom and powerloom workers.
To promote handlooms, the government made a policy to buy all the woven cloth left after the procurement by the private sector for use by government schools, hospitals. RTC and Singareni Collieries managements would also procure handloom cloth for their staff soon. Orders for about one crore Bathukamma saris would be given to Sircilla weavers this time ..Minister Ktr said ..
