The three award winning silkworm rears have been honoured under the highest productivity category despite belonging to remote areas of the country. 
Braving the hardships and challenges they have drastically increased their cocoon production during recent years and have created motivation among their fellow villagers for silkworm rearing.
Likewise the role of Majid Hayat Bawan has been remarkable in promoting the post cocoon activities and increasing the silk yarn produce through Automatic Reeling Machines (ARM), which bagged him national award.
