The Khadi & Village Industries Schemes are the backbone of the Rural India's Economy.  Khadi was evolved as a concept during India's struggle for freedom against  the colonial British Raj. This signified concept of Swadeshi, the popular  slogan of the freedom struggle in the early 20th Century, and in concrete  term was an assertion of Indian capability to manufacture their own cloth in contrast to the imported fabric coming from Manchester and Lancashire  that had initially provided incentives to the British Thrust in India  in the aftermath of industrial revolution. Naturally in the pre independence  era, the scheme was implemented by the NGOs.


After independence — even though the cause of the concept was no more in existence, the Govt.  felt the need to provide rural artisans with requisite support organisation  in order to help them to flourish. In 1957 a statutory body the Khadi  Village Industries Commission was established with the objective to  plan, program, and promote Khadi & Village Industries. At the level of  the State, it was decided to have a State Khadi & Village Industries Boards.  All State Khadi & Village Industries Board in the country are financed  by the KVIC to implement the schemes in their states in accordance with  their norms and guidelines and keeping in view the local conditions.
