Our Bureau

HYDERABAD: The month-long DWCRA (Development of Women and Children in Rural Areas) Bazaar-cum-Regional Saras, jointly sponsored by the State and Union Governments has registered sales worth Rs 40 crore.

The fact that one lakh people visited in the last two days showed how huge the response was for the bazaar, which showcased a range of products made by DWCRA self-help groups, according to Ms C.S. Ramalakshmi, Commissioner, Women Empowerment and Self Employment.

In a press release here, she said the response was encouraging. "It seems that even if we run a bazaar throughout the year, there will be good demand for our products," she said.
