"On 2nd October, the overall sale of Khadi products was recorded at Rs 1.02 crore," it said.

It added that in the COVID era, there has been a manifold rise in the demand of eco-friendly and herbal products and the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) is constantly adding new products to cater to the larger consumer base.

KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena attributed the increase in sales to the frequent appeals by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to buy Khadi and also Khadi's ever-growing acceptance among the masses.
