Devotees at the Kashi Vishwanath Temple will wear Khadi handmade paper slippers from 14th of this month. The devotees visiting the temple in Varanasi and the temple workers will no longer need to enter the temple premises barefoot. Khadi and Village Industries Commission will begin the sale of Khadi handmade paper “Use & Throw” slippers. The slippers will be sold from the Khadi sales outlet located at the parking lot of the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor. These can be purchased at the price of 50 rupees per pair. The slippers will be sold by Kashi Hastkala Pratisthan, a registered Khadi Institution in Varanasi. The handmade paper slipper manufacturing unit will be inaugurated by the Mahant of Kashi Vishwanath Temple on Makar Sankranti that is on the 14th January.

The development comes in wake of the jute slippers sent by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the workers of Kashi Vishwanath Temple after he learned that most of the people working at the temple performed their duty barefoot. It is forbidden to wear footwear made of leather or rubber on the temple premises.
