Training on Handicrafts 

             Hereditary transfer of skill was a common phenomenon in traditional handicrafts in the past. Considering the scope of self-employment in this sector and to strengthen the production base of handicrafts, both Central & State Govt. have set up Craft Schools/Training Centres at different places of the State to impart skill training in various crafts. 

            Training imparted under different schemes of both Central & State Govt. in various crafts up to 2001-2002 is given in Table-1.8 & 1.9.
