Manoj Kumar has assumed the charge as Chairman of Khadi and Village Industries Commission(KVIC), an official statement said on Saturday(16th July 2022).
His predecessor Vinai Kumar Saxena was appointed the Lt Governor of Delhi on May 23.
After taking over as the KVIC Chairman, Kumar said realizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dream of Aatmanirbhar Bharat would be his priority while also establishing maximum number of small and micro units and creating self-employment through various schemes of KVIC to achieve the larger goal of self-reliant India.
He said KVIC would continue working on the vision of the PM that would make youths job-givers instead of being job-seekers .
Kumar, who has worked as Expert Member (Marketing) at KVIC, has a vast experience in the areas of marketing and rural development.
He believes that Khadi is spreading like a silent revolution in the country which is being led by the PM, the MSME Ministry stated.
