Department of Sericulture was formed in the year 1981. Originally
the Sericulture Industry was one of the branches in Industries
Department and subsequently it was brought under Handlooms &
Textiles department as one of the wings.
In view of the enormous growth of the industry, Sericulture was
separated from Handlooms & Textiles and a separate Department of
Sericulture was formed in the year 1981 with a Senior I.A.S., officer
as the Director.
Today the department has expanded not only in its cadre strength but
also in implementation of various beneficiary oriented schemes for
upliftment of the rural poor and eradicate the problem of unemployment. At present this department is headed by
Smt. C.S. Rama Lakshmi,
with supporting staff of 2490 including all cadres of the staff and
