DUDA in partnership with Zynorique Initiatives Society (ZIS) plans to streamline and maximise the income generating activities in rural areas by creating market linkage strategy for trained artisans.
DUDA has set up a retail outlet by the name “Anghya Retail Outlet & Coffee Shop” for ENPO people at Midway Resort on the Highway between Kohima &Dimapur. The Department alongwith ZIS is exploring ways to open retail outlets in metro cities like New Delhi & Guwahati to showcase the finished products of artisans. A market linkage hub is created for entrepreneurs and farmers as an outlet for sales and display of processed food, handicraft & handloom and MFP products.
DUDA endeavoursto create infrastructure for establishment of market linkage hub in eastern Nagaland. This hub will serve as a point of collection and business centre from where the products will be supplied to retail outlets in other States and metro cities.
Under this programme, 4 (four) Market Linkage Hub namely ANGHYA built with composite bamboo and RCC structure with essential facilities have been established in four District HQs of eastern Nagaland. DUDA with its partner ZIS has already completed 2 (two) ANGHYA in Mon &Tuensang and 2 (two) more in Longleng&Kiphire have been taken up during the year 2017-18.
