Director of industries and commerce Er. Thekruneituo Kire said the department has been implementing many new schemes but viewed the success rate of SHG was low due to poor public response and urged them to utilize of the schemes as it would not continue for long.
He said this while inaugurating the first intensive skill up gradation training on Wednesday at Toluvi village Dimapur.
Kire urged the weavers to make use of the opportunity and upgrade their skills and to take maximum advantage from the master trainers. Stating Nagaland was about to complete 50 years of statehood, he felt the state should not go after freebies from the government of India, instead develop itself from the schemes provided by the Indian government.
The training is sponsored by development of commissioner (handlooms), ministry of textiles, government of India and organized by government of Nagaland, department of industries and commerce, Kohima.
“Everyone has to contribute for the development of the state” said Kire and added skill up gradation was extremely important for the development of the state.
Er. Kahoto Sumi on highlighting the training programme said the Integrated Handloom Development Scheme (IHDS) was introduced on 2007-2008, which was specially applied for Nagaland by the government of India to uplift the poor women and for their self sustenance.
Sumi said the cluster development 29 consists of 144 SAG and 1040 weavers and 31 group approach scheme consist of 126 SAG and 1600 weavers.
Asserting the success rate of 144 SAG was hardly 30-40% due to negligence of implementation of the scheme by the districts, he said that Peren, Mon, Wokha and Kiphire districts have been irresponsive and thus resulted in low growth.
He further revealed that the 32 trainees would be trained on paddle looms and jacquard machine by two trainers each from Manipur and Rajasthan including in-house trainers from the department.
