Telangana govt to Geo-tag all powerlooms on the lines of handlooms

The government has already completed geo-tagging of handlooms in the State and found that there are 17,000 handlooms in the state. Now, the government is taking up geo-tagging of the powerlooms and started it from Sircilla, which houses more than 30,000 powerlooms, the most in the State.
########Why geo-tagging#######
Geo-tagging aimed at identifying genuine beneficiaries and help them secure government assistance and upgrade their looms, produce value added fabric and increase the productivity
######Powertex India scheme######
Under the Powertex India scheme, the Central government would be extending 50 % assistance for upgrading the loom under the “in situ (Onsite) upgradation of plain powerlooms”. The balance 50 % is expected to be paid by the beneficiary. But, the State government had decided to bear the beneficiary contribution and upgrade the powerlooms without any financial burden on the weaver. As part of the upgradation simple attachments costing ₹40,000 per loom would be provided to the weavers.
