Union Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Nitin Gadkari, on 17th December launched the sale of Khadi Rumal, in the presence of VK Saxena, Chairman of Khadi and Village Industries Commission(KVIC). A few years back, struggling to sustain their existence, families of militancy affected areas of Kashmir shifted to Nagrota, a small town near Jammu. In 2016, KVIC started a napkin stitching center in Nagrota, for the women impacted by the lack of livelihood opportunities and unemployment, to help them become self-dependent and sustain their families.
