With a view to give boost to women empowerment, Haryana government has decided to give women self-help groups, an opportunity to showcase their talent through international Surajkund Craft fair to be organised at Faridabad.


The initiative came from Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala.


In the meeting with officials organised through video conference, the Deputy CM focused on constitution of self help groups and making women self reliant from economic point of view. He also issued directions for ensuring participation of self help groups in next year’s Surajkund fair so that women from rural areas of the state could get opportunity of showcasing their talent at international level.


Chautala said that the move would not only increase the employment opportunities for women but it would also give new recognition and flight to their talent on international level.


Deputy CM said that it was the endeavour of the government to increase opportunities of employment for women in the villages as well as cities so that income of the women could be increased. To meet this purpose he has directed officials to constitute self help groups in the villages where such groups have not been constituted and also activate these self help groups where they have already been constituted.


Dushyant Chautala said that chief executive officer would prepare the report after preparing the work plan for constitution of groups in every village at district level. 


He said that through this women would play an important role in pulling state out of economic downturn due to lockdown.


Citing example of self help group functioning in Hisar in the meeting, Deputy CM said that in Narnaund, Barwala, Hisar-1 more than 12 thousand women associated with self help groups are earning good income by preparing masks, spices, millet ladoos, soft toys, pickles and other products. Also a booth run by self help group is also operating in hisar’s mini secretariat complex. 


Dushyant Chautala also directed officials to establish a booth at district level throughout the state for selling the products of self help groups after activating these groups.
