    (2) Exposure Visit by Powerloom Weavers to other clusters.

    The powerloom weavers from the clusters of low level of technology are not exposed to other area of manufacturing to produce diversifying textile products or value added fabric due to limited knowledge etc.

    With a view to overcome such deficiency, the powerloom weavers in different clusters, are being taken to other developed cluster to become familiar with the working upgraded skills, the products manufactured and the marketing techniques adopted in those clusters. The concerned regional offices assist the powerloom weavers during the exposure visits and facilitate effective and meaningful interaction. The financial assistance is also being provided by the Government of India to meet the expenditure arising out of these visits.

    (3) Survey of Powerloom Sector

    Presently, the Powerloom Service Centres, set up all over the country are conducting the powerloom survey and submitting their monthly report in this regard. Since the database of the powerloom sector is not authentic, it becomes very difficult to plan the growth of the industry. It has therefore been felt that to have the realistic future growth plan; a base-line powerloom survey has to be conducted. The Government has already decided to conduct the baseline survey of the powerloom units.
