Indian Handicrafts sector has been the symbol of the wisdom, tradition, culture and religions of India. Indian handicraft sector is considered as the standard livelihood of more than the 14 million artisans and weavers thus the handloom and handicraft sector contribute a large amount of share to the Indian economics.
The handicraft sector is controlled and operated by many of the schemes by the Government. Like - according to the handloom weavers comprehension scheme, it is decided to provide all kind of health insurance facilities to the weavers and their families. The performance of this scheme is slow in effect and it has been successful in the micro level of handicraft sector.
In handicraft sector, 36% of weavers and workers are connected from the SC/ST level in which 60% part of population is women. More than 60 lakh artisans are connected to the rural and semi rural areas.
