  • The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) launched its flagship “Kumhar Sashaktikaran Yojana” in Pokhran, a small town in the Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan where India conducted its first nuclear test – to restore the lost glory of the pottery site.
  • The KVIC distributed 80 electric potter wheels to 80 potter families in Pokhran which has a rich heritage in terracotta products.
  • Pokhran has over 300 potter families engaged with pottery for several decades, but they started looking for other avenues due to heavy drudgery in the work and no market support.
