As part of a strategy to improve the sale of khadi products by extending their availability beyond conventional outlets, a sales outlet was opened at the collectorate complex here on Monday. This follows the suggestion made by the Minister for Khadi and Village Industries, T.P.Poonachi, at a review meeting conducted here on Thursday.

The Minister, while expressing concern over many districts not being able to achieve the target in manufacture and sale of khadi products, called upon officials to devise new strategies to improve the performance. He suggested that khadi outlets could function at the collectorate during government functions and on days when the public and farmers come to present their grievances. The khadi sales outlet, inaugurated by the Collector, Jayashree Muralidharan, will function on all working days, according to an official press release.
