Handloom Industry & MGNREGA (Social audit)- Government Policy

Arunabha Bhaumik


Handloom industry is decaying nowadays. But the demand of its products is worldwide. Yet all the looms are leaving their activities due to financial causes and government negligence. Government is giving stress on MGNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act), for rural development. But this program is only dependent on Government grant only, where huge amount of money is spending. It is not money generating or earning scheme. Money will go like water flow in a drain without producing any permanent earning capacity of the people. Government should give stress from where the people can earn for their livelihood for their future periods. So Government should take care or give stress on SMALL SCALE INDUSTRY for the benefit of the country and the unemployment will be abolished through Government subsidy.
