When was Khadi and Village Industries Commission formed?

  • During the Freedom Struggle, the development of Khadi and Village Industries was an instrument to meet the twin objective of self-reliance through local production and seeking the active participation of the poor in the struggle for Independence through the removal of hunger and unemployment. 
  • Accordingly, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) was created by an Act of Parliament to plan, promote and organise the systematic development and expansion. 
  • It came into existence in April 1957. 
  • The KVIC took over the work of the erstwhile All India Khadi and Village Industries Board. 
  • The original Act of 1956 has been subsequently amended during the years 1987, 1989 and 1994.
