Craft Show Room
NEDFi-Haat is an initiative of North Eastern Development Finance Corporation Ltd. (NEDFi) to provide marketing platform to the ethnic produce of NER. It was initiated in the year 2002 with an exhibition infrastructure at Ambari, Guwahati. The venue was pioneer in commercialization of ethnic delicacies as well as handloom and handicraft products of the region. The Pre-Bhogali Bihu Melaand Pre Rongali Bihu Melaheld in the month of January and April were the most popular events in the venue. The other SHG Melas, State Specific exhibitions, Pre Puja Fair, N. E. Handloom and Handicraft Fair, etc. held in different times of the year were also frequented by the consumers who preferred to buy products directly from the rural producers. The Haat at Ambari had to be closed in the year 2013 when Govt. of Assam decided to construct a new building at the site.
In the year 2019, NEDFi –Haat was set-up at its present premises at Rupnath Brahma Path, Rupnagar, Guwahati in association with Mahila Imdad Committee, Rupnagar, Guwahati. With ample parking space and its location in the heart of Guwahati, the new venue provides an ambience for good shopping experience.
The recent pandemic caused by Covid 19 has brought many challenges in terms of marketing and logistics, for the artisans and entrepreneurs of NER.To overcome these difficulties, all the showrooms managed by NE-SHILP are now opened for marketing of products produced by such producers belonging to handloom, handicraft, food processing and other MSME sector of the 8 states on NER. This is an opportunity for the producer groups to establish permanent market linkage with their customers through these showrooms as well as through this online platform.
