A well structured questionnaire was used to collect these data. The researchers applied simple percentage, mean, standard deviation, coefficient of variation and Chi-square test as statistical tools. The study found that the respondents had high level of awareness on the factor ‘method of usage of khadi products’ followed by ‘how khadi shops help for village and small industries’, ‘place of availability of khadi products’, ‘durability of khadi products, and ‘quality of khadi products’.
