Ministry OK’s KVIC’s Proposal For Wage Hike of Artisans


The Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MoMSME) has formally approved the proposal put forth by the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) in favor of hiking the wages of artisans.

The KVIC wage hike proposal had envisaged a 36% increase in remuneration being provided to artisans.

The percentage hike implied that the artisans will be able to charge INR 7.50 per hank as compared to INR 5.50 earlier.  A KVIC release issued recently disclosed that the wage hike for artisans was in effect from August 15, 2018.
