But sadly, the ever-declining demand for traditional handicrafts has made life difficult for these workers. To cater to this severe problem, the GOI launched a non-profit institution called Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts.

The said council aims at promoting, safeguarding, protecting, and augmenting the export of handicrafts in India. The council facilitates viable data to members in developing and augmenting exports.

Duties Fulfilled by the EPCH

  • Interacts with the government-based exporting committee and allied departments working at state and central level.
  • Organize trade-related events at viable destinations across the nation.
