The Deputy Commissioner, Serchhip District, Govt. of Mizoram and Mizoram University Incubation Centre signed MoU for undertaking the Centrally Sponsored Scheme “Support to Tribal Research Institutes (TRI)” on 1st October, 2021. The project is initiated for restructuring of the handloom cluster in Thenzawl. Mizoram University Incubation Centre will undertake a baseline survey and General Enterprising Tendency Tests (GETT) among the handloom weavers in Thenzawl, the hub of handloom weaving in Serchhip. Accordingly, entrepreneurship and business development training will be designed and administered to the weavers in batches. These weavers will be established as micro-enterprises (which can also be facilitated as SHGs under MzSRLM) and depending on their scalability, may be taken as fast-track (or accelerated) incubatees by the MZU Incubation Centre.
