Kashmir handicrafts and handlooms are a focal point in Jammu and Kashmir's Trade and Export Policy (2018-2028), which envisages it to grow almost five times in next five years. The policy provides an e-commerce platform for artisans to foster growth of the handicrafts sector. Just last year in November Union Minister of State, Rajeev Chandrasekhar, launched a pilot project to revive and promote the dying Namda craft in J&K, with impetus on raising the export from Rs. 600 crore to 6,000 crore. Two ambitious projects -- 'Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna (PMKVY) 3.0' and 'Upskilling of artisans and weavers of Kashmir under Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), a component of PMKVY', were launched by the Union Minister of State for Skill Development, Entrepreneurship, Electronics, and IT. These programs will focus continuously on skilling, upskilling, and reskilling local youth to solidify the foundation of PM Modi's vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat.
