Under the pilot project of Mukhya Mantri Tassar (Silk) Vikas Project of the Bihar Government, “Resham (Silk) Vikas Samiti” of 250 farmers has been formed by Gram Sathi. The Samiti comprises 22 members, 1 Resham Mitra and 2 Seed Worm Rearers. Such Samitis have been formed in 10 villages of Katoria and Chandan blocks of Banka district in Bihar for the purpose of strengthening of livelihood among the farmers. Plantation of Arjun/Aasan trees for rearing silk worms has been done on the barren lands of the farmers. In 2015-16, such plantation was done on the lands of 250 farmers. It is estimated that very soon that this will create big opportunity of silk production and marketing through which good prospects will open up for farmers and youth of the blocks through promotion of silk business.
