KHADI & VILLAGE INDUSTRIES

Khadi is handmade, handspun and hand-woven Cotton/Silk fabric made by thousands of skilled artisans living in rural areas. Khadi is cool in summer and warm in winter, soft feel texture and versatile fabric and truly environment friendly fabric suitable for all types of season. The fabric got its importance from our Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi.  Started in 1977, Khadi and Village Industries is a distinct employment generation activity for extending maximum support to the jobless youth. Since 1983, CHASS has the special status of ‘Directly -aided Institution’ of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) Govt. of India. The Khadi & Village Industries Section of CHASS is functioning in a three tier system ie; training, production & marketing.
