In a resolution, the Society expressed dismay at the maladministration of Namghars in urban areas, calling for their rejuvenation. Urban Namghariyas need to be more active in generating interest in Sankari culture. The Committee decided that they would organize a workshop in July on the use of Brajawali as it is very important for Sankari Culture. The Committee also decided to set up a weaving unit in its Aharya production center. It may be mentioned that the Society has trained many youths in Aharya production and also runs its own production unit.
