Promotion of Khadi & Village Industry

             The Orissa Khadi & Village Industries Board since its formation in 1956 extended financial assistance of Rs.5173.28 lakh through 1865 cooperative societies / institutions to set up 98,616 KVI units with funding from KVIC as per their approved pattern of assistance. The performance of the units assisted under this scheme are below expectation due to inadequate linkage between production and sales strategies, low return on investment, nonperforming assets built up, low productivity and obsolescence of technology.

            The Board from the financial year 199596 implemented the new scheme namely Consortium Bank Credit of KVIC and directly financed the interested individuals in the rural areas to set up Khadi & Village Industries. Under this scheme OKVI Board has extended financial assistance of Rs.8.05 crores to promote 368 Khadi & Village Industrial units. In order to get funding for KVIC, State Govt. have sanctioned Govt. guarantee to the tune of Rs.10.00 crore. This programme could not be successful due to wrong selection of beneficiaries, lack of proper selection of feasible proposals as well as misutilisation of funds.

            Margin money scheme, namely, Gramodyog Rojagar Yojana (GRY) was introduced by Khadi and Village Industries Commission since 19992000. Under this scheme margin money assistance is provided to organisations/individuals to set up K&VI units by availing loan from bank.

            Orissa Khadi & Village Industries Board is implementing this scheme since 19992000 to promote establishment of various village industries in rural areas to create more employment opportunities. Till end of 200102, 490 units have been promoted with investment of Rs.483.07 lakh and margin money assistance of Rs.132.87 lakh has been released. The districtwise achievement is furnished in Table 4.1.
