Khadi masks now available for online sale
New Delhi, July 9 (KNN) The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) has said its khadi face masks are now available for sale online, with cotton and silk masks priced at Rs 30 and Rs 100 per piece, respectively.
This will benefit people in the remotest parts of the country particularly those who cannot afford to move out of their houses or visit Khadi India outlets due to constraints.
For online purchase of masks, the order should be minimum Rs 500, wherein buyers have the option of choosing from the four types of masks available, i.e. White Cotton masks with Black piping, White Cotton masks with Tri-colour piping, Silk masks in solid colours and Printed Silk masks in multiple colours, KVIC said on Wednesday.
The KVIC delivers the masks for free within 5 days from the date of purchase. The online sale is currently valid within the country only.
KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena said the online sale of Khadi face masks has been started so that people buy only genuine Khadi face masks.
“Online sale of Khadi masks also aims at preventing buyers from any fraud. Many online portals have been selling masks in the name of Khadi that are neither genuine Khadi fabric nor hand-made products. A number of people tend to fall in the trap of such misleading advertisements,” Saxena added.
