With a budget of 160 crore, the Comprehensive Handicrafts Cluster Development Scheme (CHCDS) was recently approved for continuance by India’s textile ministry. The program will last through March 2026. Under this program, craftsmen who make handicrafts will receive help for infrastructure, market access, design, and technology advancement.

The goal of CHCDS is to build world-class infrastructure that meets the commercial requirements of regional small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and artisans in order to increase output and export.

Soft interventions will be offered under CHCDS, including baseline surveys, activity mapping, skill training, better toolkits, marketing events, seminars, publicity, design workshops, and capacity-building activities.

Hard interventions such as design and resource centers, emporiums, banks of raw materials, trade facilitation centers, common production centers, and common facility centers will also be approved.

To ensure economies of scale, the integration of dispersed artisans will be a priority, as will the development of their small, home-based businesses and connections to SMEs in the handicrafts industry. Under this program, the mega handicraft clusters with more than 10,000 artisans will be chosen for general growth.
