India’s one and only scissor cluster is at ___?
For the first time, a handmade tool from micro and small and medium enterprises in India has been registered for a geographical indicator (GI) tag. The tool is a pair of scissors made of metal scrap by a community in Meerut, which is “the only scissor cluster in India” and which has been making the product for more than three centuries. The tag would enable the crafters to make scissors of standard sizes and of high quality. Known for their sharpness, the scissors are used at home and by industrial garment manufacturers.
