MSMEs a boon for the rural people of Manipur

Manipur has witnessed a steady growth of small scale industries through the government's consistent efforts to encourage self-employment ventures. This has come as a boon for rural artisans who are now able to earn a decent livelihood by utilizing their skills.

 

The Imphal Handloom -Work shed cum rural showroom is one among several small scale enterprises in Manipur that provides training and employment to rural artisans.

 

The group owned by M Jibonmala Devi at present trains around 40 artisans in making handloom and handicraft products. The final products are displayed in the showroom.

 

The group has come as a boon for the locals, especially the women folk and the youth, who are able to supplement their family income by utilizing the leisure time.

 

They are happy as they manage to earn around Rs 7000-8000 per month.

 

“There are so many youngsters who do not have work. Instead of wasting time and doing nothing they should learn such handicrafts or handloom. So I called of them here for training," said M Jibonmala Devi, MSME entrepreneur.

 

The government has been regularly conducting skill and entrepreneurship development programmes to empower the rural population and encourage them to take up self-employment ventures.

 

There has been a significant development in the micro, small and medium enterprise sector in Manipur.

 

The National Small Industries Corporation has been organizing several expos in the state to provide a platform to such groups to showcase their products. Under the newly launched Northeast Textile Promotion Scheme, the department also intends to provide power-looms at a 70 per cent subsidy.

 

A total of Rs 14 crore has been allotted for the development of handlooms and handicraft sector during the remaining three years of the 12th Five Year Plan.

 

“People are looking for employment. They want to lead a peaceful life, they want employment and by taking up this cluster whether in handloom or food processing or handicraft people are gainfully engaged in some kind of productive activities," O Nabakeshwore Singh, Principal Secretary, Commerce and Industries.
