Weaver-members reduced in the house holds weaving shed of the Primary Weavers Co-operative Societies. Weaver-members wages is lower than the daily wages in other sector of workers, i.e. Maximum wages earned by weaver-members is Rs.80-100; Minimum wages for other sector is Rs.300-400. Production reduced due to old-age of efficient weavers. New weavers is not available. Even though handloom product liked by the public, traditional handloom product not liked due to changing taste. ISSUES FACED BY THE SOCIETY:
PONTEX trained the weaver-members for weaving in different products, but the trainees are reluctant to continue in the weaving sector. National Handloom Development Corporation insists the advance payment for yarn supply to avail 10% of hank yarn subsidy. Processing and printing gets delayed: i) Due to power cut; ii) Increase in the processing and printing charges and cost of transportation; iii)The dyeing & processing units are declining the processing work due to court order relating to pollutions and environmental factors.
Fully depends on the supply orders of Government. The rates of handloom cloths are more than the mill made fabrics. Heavy competition in the market Financial problems: i) Due to non-receipt of cloth sales dues from the Government; ii) Non-receipt of plan and non-plan funds from the Government. CHALLENGES OF THE SOCIETY:
iii) Due to non-receipt of supply orders from the Government departments in advance. iv) Production carried out by PONTEX in anticipation of the future order and thereby the stock is accumulated and simultaneously payment of interest to the Cash Credit Loan is increased abnormally. PONTEX frameloom products such as Bedsheets Towels, Pillow Covers, Furnishings, Shirtings kerchieves, Napkins etc. are in heavy demand in the market, whereas there is only 350 framelooms working, which is not sufficient to meet out the actual marketing requirements. This is actually a big challenge.
The pitloom varieties such as lungies and saree gada are not in much demand, whereas 1000 pitlooms are working. Conversion of pitlooms into framelooms is not possible due to heavy workmanship involving in frameloom weaving. Because of this reason the weavers are reluctant to switchover to frameloom products.
