Guidelines for providing proper marketing platform were given to the competent officers of KVIC by the Chairman KVIC.

We have taken another step forward towards Aatmanirbhar Bharat by providing employment to unemployed youth in tribal and backward areas at their doorsteps, he said.

The Chairman appreciated the work done by the women beneficiaries of 6 SHG groups working in sensitive and remote area of the country. He also assured all possible help to these women beneficiaries.
