Pension Benefit to Craft Persons

            Development Commissioner (Handicrafts) extends financial assistance to senior master craft persons above 60 years of age who are recipients of National Awards/ National Merit Certificate or State Awards in Handicrafts. This provision helps the old artisans to survive with the pension benefit and be able to disseminate their knowledge to the younger generation. Also, this encourages new young artisans to practise handicrafts and devote their fulltime with an assurance of pensionary benefit. 

            The Master Craft Persons of the state in receipt of the benefit are as follows.
