This petition had 125 supporters

In Bamboo craft area, which I am involved for last 30 years, with 13.5lakh craft-persons are working in villages,towns and cities. they are leaving the 'Craft' as it has not been sustainable. Government efforts in providing Training, Technology and Design supports  are not helping to compete in the Urban and International Markets. Similar situation prevails in other craft areas like Weaving,Pottery,etc,.                                                                                                                                                          At present MGNREGA programme to support rural poor is useful but not effective in terms of increasing productivity and sustainability. Please make a policy change to benefit sectors  like bamboo crafts, pottery etc,. Any NGO and Small Entrepreneurs(SE) working in this sector can be recognized and allowed to use the benefit of MGNREGA employment support which is given for 100 days with a condition that the NGO/SE recognized

will engage the workers with the same daily wage payment for another 100 days.

What it means is that NGO/SE will pay 50% and Govt will pay 50%. But the produce of 200 days goes to the NGO/SE. This way our sectors like bamboo craft etc, can become nationally and internationally competitive and workers will get an assured work for 200 days with the  approved wage amount!

Kindly direct the concerned Ministry to take action in this direction.
