Silk Reeling Training in Villages

The Minister also launched a national campaign to eliminate the
exploitative and unhygienic practice of thigh reeling in India (thigh
reeling of tasar silk is usually practiced by marginal women
entrepreneurs, working every day in their homes during spare time).
Irani noted that 30% of the tasar silk produced in India is through the practice of thigh reeling. The Minister said that in order to put
an end to this unhygienic and inhuman practice, the Ministry is starting the distribution of woman­friendly Buniyaad Reeling
Machines to woman silk reelers.
Developed by Central Silk Technological Research Institute that falls under the aegis of Central Silk Board (CSB), Ministry of
Textiles, Govt. of India, the Buniyaad machine not only reduces the drudgery involved in thigh reeling, but also improves productivity and income.
