Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), a body formed by Indian Government, is planning to set up 7 to 8 khadi centres in the state of Meghalaya this year.

Vinay Kumar Saxena, Chairman, KVIC said, “Each centre’s estimated cost is Rs. 9 lakh and the annual production is likely to be around Rs. 16 to Rs. 17 lakh. The centres are also expected to provide employment to locals.”

He further added that the state’s khadi activities were not up to the mark. “The required attention was not given to khadi in the last 20 years in spite of the fact that the industry has the potential to generate employment for the people of Meghalaya,” stated Vinay.

KVIC is responsible for the planning, promotion, organization and implementation of programmes for the development of khadi and other village industries in the rural areas in coordination with other agencies engaged in rural development wherever necessary.
