He said that KVIC has manifested the idea of ‘Antyodaya’ and ‘Swablamban’ (self-reliance). The idea behind it is to support the leather artisans with a micro  financial assistance so that they may start producing the leather products according to need of the market. They will now be known as ‘Charm Chikitsak (Leather  Doctors), he said and informed that the KVIC had so far established 419 units within last 3 years under the Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme  (PMEGP).Shri Gadkari said that social and economic equality in society will not come from speeches only but with real action.

He also appealed the leather artisans to improve the quality of their produce and assured that government will  give all financial assistance to them in this connection.Appreciating KVIC’s efforts in uplifting the marginalized community, Shri Gadkari added that in the coming days,  leather art and craft industry will be one of the significant village industry under KVIC and the lost glory in this sector will be returned back again MSME has extended an  additional support of Rs 25 crores for overall development of leather art and craft industry.KVIC Chairman Shri Vinai Kumar Saxena, in his welcome address, said that  believing in Mahatma Gandhi’s principle of self-reliance and Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s mantra of inclusive growth, KVIC is committed to ensure the  development of last man left in the society. With these programmes, we can bring changes in the lives of marginalized people. It will not only increase the income of  charm-chikitsak in manifold, but will also give them social security and acceptance he said and informed that in the current financial year, KVIC would distribute another  70,000 Leather Tool Kits among the trained leather-doctors.New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi and former Rajya Sabha MP K.C.
