PM Modi to launch PM Vishwakarma Scheme to connect artisans with domestic and global value chains

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the PM Vishwakarma Scheme on the occasion of Vishwakarma Jayanti tomorrow at the India International Convention and Expo Centre in New Delhi. The aim of the scheme is to not only support the artisans and craftspeople of rural and urban areas across the country financially but also to keep the age-old tradition, culture, and diverse heritage alive and flourishing through local products, art, and crafts.

It has been the sustained focus of the Prime Minister to give support to the people engaged in traditional crafts. The prime focus of the scheme which covers 18 traditional crafts is to improve the quality as well as the reach of products and services and to ensure that they are integrated with the domestic and global value chains. It aims to strengthen and nurture the Guru-Shishya parampara or family-based practice of traditional skills by Vishwakarmas working with their hands and tools.
