Lokavidya Vedike Supports Zero-Tax on Handmade Products
 22 Sep 2017
The Lokavidya Vedike fully supports the call for intensification of the ongoing struggle against GST on handmade products by the Gram Seva Sangh, Bengaluru. The Vedike decides to extend all possible assistance to the campaign for zero tax on handmade products. The Vedike believes that handmade products are essential expressions of Lokavidya, that is, the knowledge, skills and beliefs of our craftsmen, artisans, peasants and other ordinary people in the society. The imposition of GST on handmade products is a direct assault on both the lives of ordinary people and Lokavidya.
The Vedike strongly urges the government to withdraw GST on all handmade products without any delay. Moreover, we urge the government to take immediate steps to support and multiply the value and volumes of handmade production in the country, because this alone is capable of providing livelihoods and dignity to the vast majority of Indians.
