In the 1998 Disabled Competition held in Mizoram, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes in the drawing/painting went to children from this unit. Earned 1st, 2nd prizes many times from the Very Special Art India for drawing and painting competitions.

It requires hard work and the trainees are guided to master these steps. Our products are being purchased by SSA Mizoram, AIR and other Government offices. We make envelopes of any size.

But from 2012, the situation compelled us to discontinue this unit because of the increasing price of paraffin wax.
