New Delhi, Nov 22 (KNN) The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has granted the export excellence tag to Bhadohi district of Uttar Pradesh which is known by the name Carpet city.

In a recent notification, DGFT said “The town of Bhadohi in Uttar Pradesh has been notified as a ‘Town of Export Excellence’ for the product category ‘Carpets and other floor Coverings’.”

Appreciating the DGFT's decision of notifying the Bhadohi district as a town of excellence, Vivek Baranwal, General Secretary of Eastern UP Exporters Association told KNN India, “With the declaration of town of excellence, we should be able to get better access to the funding for the infrastructure projects.”

Bhadohi, which is a home to the largest hand-knotted carpet weaving industry hubs has been lacking in infrastructure from long time, he added.

Despite the high exports turnover, we have no basic infrastructure considering bridges, roads and etc, Baranwal, pointed.

He said “With this decision, we hope all the facilities should be available at faster pace.”
