Craft Development Centre 

           The Development Commissioner (Handicrafts), Govt. of India felt that the artisans should get the facilities like advanced training, design guidance, marketing etc. at one place along with the raw material and other common facilities. The main objective is to provide facilities to a cluster of artisans at the craft concentration pockets under one roof. The Craft Development Centres sanctioned by the DC (H), Govt. of India with their location and crafts to be covered are given in Table 1.12 below:
