TN: Pottery Workers in Kanyakumari Seek Government Intervention

Earthen pot makers in the Kanyakumari district are facing multiple challenges in sustaining their skilled jobs. Finding clay and fine grog has become a challenging task with several restrictions by the government, while the shift towards other forms of vessels has hit the workers hard.
With no guarantee on assured prices for their products, the workers continue to demand stronger and more effective cooperative societies to protect and sell the goods in the market.
Another major challenge facing the workers is the climate prevailing in Kanyakumari, which receives two monsoons every year, leaving the workers without work and income for almost seven months.
Few other factors, including the quality of the clay and grog used, along with the firewood used for baking the earthen goods, have made their jobs more challenging.
