Uttarakhand to build rural Haats with Nabard s support

In a bid to promote crafts in his state, Uttarakhand’s Chief Minister Harish Rawat has announced that his government would set up rural Haat (market places) with the support of National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development.

Inaugurating a national handloom expo, Rawat said, “To enhance entrepreneur skills among the youths, the government will also identify places where special training programmes will be launched. Rural artisans do not have the wherewithal to connect themselves to the market. Provision for permanent marketing centres, such as rural Haat, would help them bridge the inadequacies.”

The Chief Minister also said his government would provide land at Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamunotri, Hemkund and other tourist areas to set up rural Haat.

Rawat said his government had come out with a special policy for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to benefit the youth. He said people should take benefit of the policy and set up small industries.
