"Those people doing work in the unorganised sector will be brought to the organised sector so that their designs and craft can be sold throughout the country and abroad as well," she added.

"There are about 70 different types of handicrafts that have originated from Rajasthan, which are doing excellent work in the rural and remote areas. They are doing so well, although, in the unorganized sector. All of them will be added to the organized sector. They will also get the right training so that similar handicrafts can go to the country and abroad," said Singh.
The administration is also planning to come up with a separate budget provision for handicraft works and prompting to give e-marketing to the locals associated with the work to expand the reach of Rajasthan's handicraft work.
"There will also be a separate provision for the budget and a museum of handicrafts would also be built in coming days. So that only those who come can know what kind of handicraft work is being done inside Rajasthan. We have planned to do this with area specification, as well as work will be done through the institutes, in-house work will be promoted and e-marketing training will also be given. So that the people doing handicraft work in the villages can also sell their goods through the Internet. They will be taught skills so that they can get better options," she added. (ANI)
