Bhubaneswar: Odisha government has decided to provide Rs 15 cr as financial input to Boyanika to tide over the situation arising out of the COVID pandemic.
This has been hailed by the weavers of the state. The financial assistance to Boyanika was announced when National Weavers’ Day is being celebrated.
Reports said Boyanika has already lost Rs 20 cr in the year 2020 due to coronavirus. If this situation persists then the situation for Boyanika will be horrible.

Boyanika has provided cotton thread worth Rs 4.3 cr to weavers’ cooperative societies and Boyanika has purchased material worth of Rs 10 cr. Boyanika has given Rs 12.38 cr towards the wages to the weavers.
