KADAPA: The Central and State Governments have initiated several measures for the development of the handloom sector, Joint Collector Girija Sankar said.

Speaking at the inaugural session of a meeting of sellers and buyers of yarn, he said the quality of raw material should be good to get a better price for the finished product. Hence, quality yarn should be supplied to weavers at reasonable prices, he said.
