In 75 districts across Uttar Pradesh, this effort aims to build product-specific traditional manufacturing centres. This will strengthen traditional industries in a number of state districts.

Examples of well-established value chains include chikankari in Lucknow, silk textiles in Varanasi, and Aligarh’s locks and hardware industry. By providing a full help package for chosen items, including increased access to technology, markets, finance, and skills, the ODOP project seeks to reach every district in the state.
