Ministry of Textiles to set up Bunkar Mitra Handloom Helpline Centre
24 December 2016 Current Affairs: The Union Ministry of Textiles has decided to establish a Bunkar Mitra-Handloom Helpline Centre where experts in the field of textiles will answer professional queries of weavers. 

This helpline initially will be provided in 7 languages viz., English, Hindi and 5 other regional languages Tamil, Telugu, Kannada Bengali and Assamese.

This helpline aims to overcome the problem of unavailability of single point of contact where weavers can seek solutions for their technical issues/problems.

 Currently there 28 Weavers’ Service Centres (WSCs) functioning across the country to provide technical assistance to handloom weavers in improving their skills. But for seeking assistance, weavers have to personally visit the WSCs.
