Registered institutions have their own decentralized units of production and each institution has a Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and other executive members. So far as

the institution is concerned, the Chairman of the institution is assisted by the Secretary, Treasurer, Accountant, Internal Auditors, Production Managers, Sales Managers and others. It would not be out of place to mention here that most of Institutional Seretaries hold on to the same post for years together without any retirement age limit and some times it is even here ditony.

Each institution has its own operational area which is demarcated by the Certification Committee of KVIC, Mumbai.

The registered institutions perform broad socio economic functions for the welfare of artisans, non-artisans and the people of the area concerned.


Production of Khadi :-
Production in Khadi involves various processes such as lap making, carding, roving, spinning, dying, pre processing of yarn, warping & slizing, drawing, weaving, washing, printing, calendaring, tailoring etc.

Employment :-
So far the creation of local employment is concerned it is a matter of fact that this industry has created considerable local employment, both full & part time. But there is a tendency for Khadi artisans to shift to alternative employment because they think that the employment is not economically viable for them though now those days have gone by through to the untiring positive efforts of WBKVIB. Now, who left Khadi are coming back and rejoining this sector again for their ensured livelihood.

Co-ordination between KVIB/KVIC : –
So far as the coordination between State Office of the KVIB and the state KVIC is concerned, once the area is selected by the KVIB, the KVIC keeps itself away from it. In fact, without the prior consent and no objection certificate of the Board, the State office of the KVIC does not take up new areas of operation. There is a clear cut understanding between these two organization.
